Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) April 02, 2013
Lumenate Technologies, LP (Lumenate) today announced that it has set up shop in Chicago to better serve enterprise customers leveraging virtualization and converging infrastructure, the firm’s area of specialization.
Earlier this year Lumenate announced its merger with New England integration firm, ICI America, after setting record pace in its home state of Texas, winning partner and industry accolades including Inc 5000, Fast Growth and Tech Elite awards for exceptional service and rapid growth. This expansion into the Chicago area gives Lumenate a presence in the central U.S. that the firm has been eying to provide localized support to key customers located in this Midwest hub.
“Chicago is a great market and this move provides local access to some important customers that we are confident we can assist. An opportunity with an established team presented itself and based on our balance sheet and trajectory we were able to take advantage of the opportunity. We couldn’t be happier”, said Lumenate President, Reagan Dixon. Leading the Chicago Lumenate office will be Bob Nelson, former CEO of Augmentity, an experienced Hitachi, Cisco, VMware and NetApp partner, a perfect complement to the established Lumenate portfolio. Prior to Augmentity, Nelson was RVP of sales for Agilysys, one of the largest Sun Microsystems Technology partners in the United States. “Bob has the right combination of experience with server and storage, virtualization and the delivery of As-a-Service consumption models, a solution that Lumenate calls Business Model Flexibility, Dixon continued. This bolsters the solution portfolio of Lumenate and extends our geographic reach providing an enhanced capability to address client challenges with a home team. There are a number of health care, financial, retail and education customers headquartered here that we have demonstrated expertise in assisting.”
Further commenting on the expansion, Bob Nelson, regional vice president of Lumenate Midwest said, “This is about an expansion opportunity of an organization that possesses a unique business model that seems to be a step ahead of the industry. We will be able to deliver expertise in infrastructure consulting, architecture and datacenter services - particularly around security, networking and collaboration that customers absolutely require. Lumenate has an excellent history of growth and customer success in providing customers with infrastructure evolution and best practices, and I am thrilled to be a part of this.”
Increasingly, organizations rely on their IT infrastructure to be flexible, scalable, reliable, secure and cost-effective. Lumenate is committed to helping clients accelerate and redefine the adoption of converged infrastructure and flexible computing models that increase efficiency and security while dramatically reducing cost and time to market.
