Integration firm Dimension Data has snapped up cloud video managed services provider Teliris.
The deal – whose financial terms were not disclosed – gives Dimension Data additional expertise in telepresence and videoconferencing.
“Teliris’ cloud capabilities complement Dimension Data’s existing portfolio of both cloud services and managed services offerings," said Steve Nola, CEO of Dimension Data’s ITaaS business unit.
The move came as Teliris “was looking to join forces with a leader in the video and managed services space," said Jeff Tench, CEO of Teliris. “Teliris customers will benefit greatly as the new Teliris moves from the boardroom to the desktop with a comprehensive set of managed services for the entire video and unified communications estate."
For now, Teliris will retain its brand; its services and support are not changing.
