Looking Toward The Future
On Wednesday, Dimension Data, No. 11 on CRN's SP500 list, shook the channel industry with its announcement that it had acquired $471 million solution provider Nexus IS, No. 78 on CRN's SP500 list, for an undisclosed amount. In the hours after it announced the deal, Dimension Data Americas CEO Mark Slaga (far left) and Nexus President and COO Waheed Choudhry discussed with CRN what the deal means for the two combined solution providers, why they believe they are a great fit to be a competitive force in the market and what other acquisitions might be on the horizon.
