Datacom buys Origen, takes Ozone to Australia
Posted on 5-Mar-2014 20:03 by Bill Bennett. | Tags Filed under: News.


Earlier today I wrote Datacom buys Origen, takes Ozone to Australia for the IITP TechBlog.

Buying Origen is an interesting move on Datacom’s part. On the surface it’s a  simply a consolidation play. The acquisition shores up the company’s business in the local government sector – a substantial market for the company.

At the same time, Datacom gets to leverage its Trans-Tasman presence.  The company’s brand is well-known and trusted – that can open doors for Origen where a 15-person Tauranga-based outfit might struggle. Australians are used to dealing with larger technology providers and may wonder if a small company can provided the depth of support. That’s probably not fair – but then life isn’t either.

But the part that caught my eye is that Datacom plans to offer Origen along with cloud services and business process management. That’s a business where its relative scale can score.  Presumably there are a lot more specialist vertical market software developers out there who could do with a similar cloud and services leg-up.

I suspect we will see more acquisitions of a similar nature.
