Canary Technology Solutions launches today, bringing together three established businesses - IT Consult, Diversus Group and BCPrise - to form a major new player in the Australian IT services market with annual revenues of $25 million, and significant growth ambition
The new company is the realisation of a multi-year growth strategy led by IT Consult co-founders Steve Parsonage and Bill Henderson that has doubled revenue, more than tripled staff numbers, and resulted in a substantially expanded range of offerings and customer base.
“We’re excited to take and build on the strong heritage of the three established businesses, where the ‘sum of the parts’ creates substantial opportunities to expand and grow. We have a measured growth strategy that sees us continue the organic growth of the key pillars of Canary, while also actively exploring additional expansion opportunities via the merger or acquisition (M&A) of other Australian channel businesses. It’s ‘game on’ for Canary - and we’re only just getting started,” said Steve Parsonage, CEO, Canary Technology Solutions.
Canary Technology Solutions is the rebranded result of two acquisitions of established businesses by IT Consult and the novation of local resources from an international retail software vendor:
The new corporate brand identity is a nod to IT Consult’s roots as a provider dedicated to protecting and preserving one of the most valuable assets that customers have: their data.
Canary Technology Solutions calls on the ‘canary in the coalmine’, where miners took birds into the tunnels as an early warning to the release of dangerous gases from the surrounding rocks. This draws parallels to Canary Technology Solutions’ role in the early detection of threats to data, and protecting systems and the information contained within them.
IT Consult already had partner accreditation with Microsoft and NetApp but significantly expands those partnerships in its new guise as Canary Technology Solutions. Diversus Group, for example, has over 55% share of professional services for NetApp in Australia, giving Canary Technology Solutions a much more substantial presence in the NetApp ecosystem.
Canary Technology Solutions operates as four integrated key pillars: Canary Cloud and Data, Canary Cybersecurity, Canary ERP and POS, and Canary Managed Services.
“We are very excited to join Canary Technology Solutions,” said Chris “Cyril” Stearsmere, Canary Technology Solutions, General Manager Cloud. “Diversus Group’s core competencies, strategic vendor focus, and our enterprise and government verticals very much align with Canary IT. The combined internal skills, capabilities and the longevity of our key partnerships such as NetApp, sets a solid foundation to bring a rich set of tools and capabilities to support customers on their journey to cloud.”
Canary Technology Solutions customers include enterprise clients spanning across a wide range of verticals such as finance, health, construction, not for profit as well as local, state and Federal Government.
