Sierra Systems will expand NTT Data’s footprint in North America and and bolster its talent in core areas, such as Microsoft Dynamics, Oracle and ServiceNow, the company says.

NTT Data Services said Monday it has agreed to buy a Canadian IT consulting company to expand its footprint in North America.

Founded in 1966, Sierra Systems has 700 professionals and has developed deep expertise in its targeted industries to strengthen organizations’ operational performance.

“Sierra Systems’ reputation as a trusted adviser in Canada is evidenced by the strength of their client relationships, many of which have spanned decades,” Bob Pryor, CEO of Plano, Texas-based NTT Data Services, said in a statement. “With the addition of Sierra Systems’ talented team, we’ll expand our ability to deliver innovation and business outcomes to clients in Canada and extend our North American delivery capabilities. Growth prospects are very strong in Canada, so this is an attractive market as we continue to grow globally.”

Financial terms of the deal, which is expected to close in later in the year, were not disclosed. TM Capital served as the exclusive financial adviser to The Sierra-Cedar Group in connection with this transaction, the company said in a statement.

In addition to inheriting the company’s 52-year history, long-term client relationships and respected brand, Sierra Systems will expand NTT Data’s digital services capabilities and bolster its talent in core areas, such as Microsoft Dynamics, Oracle and ServiceNow, the company said.

“Joining the NTT Data family is truly a perfect match for Sierra Systems that expands opportunities for both our clients and employees. The alignment of our services and industries with an appreciation of our client relationships and culture underscores our commitment to meeting the unique needs of the Canadian marketplace,” said Pat Kaiser, COO of Sierra Systems.
