Cincinnati data center and private cloud provider Appica announced today it has acquired IT consulting firm Computerperson, extending Appica’s ability to simplify IT infrastructure for businesses.
"Businesses are hungry for a simplified approach to IT that protects their data and enables them to focus on growth," said Aaron Larkins, Appica founder and chief executive officer. "With the addition of Computerperson, we will redefine IT service delivery by enabling our customers to leverage one partner for their IT, data center, and cloud strategy needs."
Founded in 1996, Computerperson is a full service technology based consulting firm that provides proactive IT management and infrastructure to businesses. For many customers, Computerperson serves as the technology practice leader who optimizes and proactively manages the IT needs of businesses.
"We've partnered with Appica since 2002 and use their Cincinnati data center to host and deliver applications for our clients," said Robert Nichols, Computerperson founder and technology leader. "Now as part of the Appica family, we can provide our clients with even greater IT results, as we leverage Appica's data centers and cloud platform expertise. Our shared goal is to redefine IT service delivery by ending the cycle of capital intensive IT projects that distract businesses and help business leaders focus on growth."
"This is a growth story and Appica is expanding both regionally and nationally as businesses search for a partner they can trust to protect their critical data and applications," said Larkins.
