CORE BTS ACQUIRES THE MICROSOFT BUSINESS UNIT OF SADA SYSTEMS
Acquisition Bolsters Core’s Managed Services and Cloud Solutions Offerings and Adds Geographic Expansion
Garden City, NY – March 5, 2019 – Core BTS (Core), a national IT solutions, security and managed services provider, announced today that it has acquired the Microsoft Business Unit of SADA Systems, a privately-owned global leader in business and technology consulting and IT services, for an undisclosed sum. This acquisition is part of Core’s ongoing strategy to expand its services portfolio, including its managed services capabilities, across the United States. In August 2018, Core was acquired by Tailwind Capital, a middle market private equity firm focused on growth-oriented investments in targeted sectors within healthcare, business services and industrial services.
“This acquisition strengthens our strategic partnership with Microsoft and expands our relationships with many tremendous clients,” said Core CEO Walter Cook. “Our talented team will continue to offer our clients the industry-leading services and solutions that help them advance their businesses through technology. I am excited to welcome the employees to the Core family.”
SADA’s Microsoft practice is a premier Microsoft Cloud Solutions Provider (CSP), holding multiple Gold competencies, and has a proven track record in enterprise consulting, cloud platform migration, custom application development, managed services, user adoption and change management.
“We’re proud of the tremendous growth we’ve experienced, the exceptional team we’ve built, and the industry leading brands with whom we have worked,” said SADA Systems CEO Tony Safoian. “We’re confident our customers are in excellent hands with Core, where they will continue to receive the same level of service delivery and support from the team they know and love.”
Core has an established IT services and cloud solutions portfolio focused on Network, Data Center, Collaboration and Security. The addition of the SADA’s Microsoft business unit greatly expands these capabilities, strengthening Core’s professional and managed services, as well as end user adoption for the broader Microsoft solution set. With the addition of SADA’s Microsoft team, Core now adds significant capabilities to address its customers increasing demand for Azure and Office 365 cloud solutions.
With 16 offices across the United States, Core employs a team of IT consultants and engineers that provide design, implementation, and ongoing support services. Core has over 1,200 active customers across diverse industries, including healthcare, education, financial services, gaming and manufacturing. The addition of this West Coast operation significantly expands Core’s ability to serve its current and future customers.
