TORONTO, November 4, 2015 – Scalar Decisions Inc. (“Scalar”), Canada’s leading information technology solutions integrator, today announced that it has reached an agreement to purchase Eosensa Inc. (“Eosensa”), a leader in technology risk management consulting. As the third transaction announced in 18 months, this acquisition is highly complementary and further solidifies Scalar’s position as one of Canada’s largest IT solutions companies.
The strategic transaction extends Eosensa’s Risk Advisory offering to over 800 Scalar clients in eight offices across Canada, while providing Eosensa’s clients with access to Scalar’s technology architecture, integration, and managed services resources, across the security, infrastructure, and cloud practices.
“With the expertise in technology risk management, Scalar will now offer its clients end-to-end technology solutions, from risk and gap assessments to technology recommendations, implementation, integration and ongoing managed services,” said Paul Kerr, president and CEO of Scalar Decisions Inc. “Beyond business synchronicity, the companies share a focus on client service, organizational and cultural values, which are critical for a seamless integration.”
Eosensa’s team of 22 full time employees will be integrated immediately and form a new Risk Advisory Practice at Scalar. Eosensa co-founders and managing directors Julius Azarcon and Benjamin A. Boi-Doku will become the practice leaders at Scalar for Technology Risk, Governance, and Information Assurance and for Cyber Risk and Security, respectively. All Eosensa employees will work on these teams, and the group is currently recruiting additional resources in Toronto and other major centres across Canada.
“We look forward to bringing Scalar’s technology solutions and coast to coast network to our client base,” said Julius Azarcon, practice leader and co-founder, Eosensa. “We are confident this will be a mutually beneficial and seamless transition for both teams.”
