Enterprise services provider, CDC Software, has acquired Melbourne-based software integrator, Dynamic Business Consultants (DBC).
The deal will help build CDC's Praxa Consulting division and its competencies in Microsoft Dynamics solutions. DBC focuses on enterprise resource systems, service management and manufacturing resource planning. It provides solutions and services to over 90 clients. Financial terms have not been disclosed.
CDC managing director, Frank Hung, said the acquisition tied closely to the integrator's purchase of Snapdragon Consulting last year.
"DBC completes our Microsoft Dynamics end-to-end solution. We'll be integrating the company under Praxa and running it as an independent unit," Hung said. "There's no client crossover due to the complementary services DBC brings us."
All 20 DBC staff will be retained. Hung said more staff would be brought into the unit as CDC extended its presence from Victoria and SA into NSW and Queensland.
CDC has been on an acquisitions hunt for the past year, picking up [artid: 1880059075|Queensland-based PlanTec|new]] and Adelaide-based Vectra last year. Hung said it was on the lookout for more this year.
"We're working on organic growth, but we're looking out for good acquisitions that fit our areas of interest, such as Microsoft and Business Intelligence," he said.
