PC vendor buys into data consultancy

Dell has signed an agreement to acquire The Networked Storage Company (TNWSC), a privately held IT consultancy that specialises in moving customers between data storage systems.

TNWSC is based in the UK and aims to help clients reduce the overall costs and complexity of IT infrastructure maintenance and management.

"We plan to incorporate their expertise and world-class methodologies as part of our consulting offerings and scale globally," said Stephen Murdoch, vice president of global infrastructure consulting services at Dell.

Simon Pennock, chief executive and founder of TNWSC, said that Dell shares the belief that IT should be "less complex and the costs more transparent".

"Dell's global reach and depth of capability will enable us to deliver on this vision through the proven benefits of our point-of-proof methodology," he added.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed and the purchase will not be final until all closing conditions are met.
