Lumenate Acquires Troubadour, a Texas based networking and security firm
Technical Consulting Firm bolsters Geography and strengthens Networking Practice
DALLAS – April 18, 2012 – Today, Lumenate is announcing that it has completed the acquisition of Houston-based network and security solutions firm, Troubadour Ltd. Lumenate has built a strong reputation in the Information Technology (IT) industry by delivering high-value enterprise solutions focused around core practices that include Storage, Server Virtualization, Networks, and Security. The acquisition of Troubadour complements the solution portfolio of Lumenate, strengthens its geographic reach, and provides the firm with an expanded ability to continue to solve for the increasingly complex needs of its clients and prospects.
“This is a combination that makes sense at several levels for both firms. Troubadour has a long history of providing superior levels of sales, engineering and customer services to its customers in Houston, and also has technology practices that are extremely complementary to Lumenate’s existing portfolio”, said Lumenate President, Reagan Dixon.
Commenting on the acquisition, Jay Kirby, executive vice president of Troubadour said, “By combining our two companies, we are able to deliver a much broader architectural approach to our customer base here in Houston and throughout Texas. Lumenate has an excellent history of growth and customer success in the Storage and Security markets, and Troubadour has proven success in the field of networking. This combination greatly enhances our ability to service our customers and win new ones.”
With today’s announcement of Troubadour, Lumenate has successfully completed three acquisitions including: a division of Stonebridge Technologies, Inc. which provided information technology advisory and implementation services, corporate IT security specialists ANI Direct, and now, Troubadour, the highly skilled networking and security practice team. This positions Lumenate to exceed $100 million in revenues next year.
The next generation of network solutions is rapidly evolving and solutions providers must be facilitators of this change if they are to meet the demands of their clients and prospects. Increasingly, businesses rely on IT to create sustainable competitive advantage in their markets. To be valuable, IT infrastructure needs to be flexible, scalable, reliable, secure, and cost-effective. Lumenate is committed to helping our clients accelerate and refine the adoption of next-generation converged infrastructure and cloud-based computing models that dramatically reduce the cost of IT while improving time to market.
