Fusion Flourishing as MSP

By Maurice Nagle

When a company does its due diligence in searching for synergy in a merger or acquisition, the sky is the limit. The industry is bearing witness to a frenzy of consolidation taking place, with MSPs, cloud services and communications providers at the front of the line. A firm that has long facilitated growth via acquisition, Fusion is beginning to see the fruits of its Apptix acquisition turn tangible.

Today, Fusion announced a new contract as a result of the acquisition of a resource optimization and business process software company. It is able to leverage the Apptix team and infrastructure to implement its integrated cloud computing solutions for the software firm – from the data center to desk tops.

“This leading software company is known for its passion for excellence, with a commitment to deploying cutting edge technology in support of its innovative business solutions. We are gratified that the company has placed its trust in Fusion and our fully managed cloud solution, allowing it to focus precious IT resources on its customers' success,” said Russell P. Markman, Fusion's President of Business Services.

The digital transformation of today is tasking IT departments with more than ever, and one of the primary reasons for selecting Fusion’s services was to allow the software firm to focus on core initiatives. In deploying an MSP, the software company gains the expertise of a firm well versed in architecting, delivering and supporting the IaaS solutions required for cloud migration in a scalable, secure and reliable manner.

At the time of the acquisition, Fusion immediately gained a boost in terms of scale, scope and recurring revenue. The Apptix addition spelled “stickiness” in terms of IT departments, and accelerated Fusion’s growth strategy and leadership in the cloud computing space. As it continues to integrate more of Apptix into offerings, I’d expect today’s announcement to be the first of many to come as Fusion expands its cross-sell and up-sell opportunities.

Fusion is finding a way to continue its market sprawl; from UC and the cloud, to now expanding its MSP offerings, only time will tell what’s next…
