CSG to buy second Oracle specialist

Darwin-based IT services company CSG has announced plans to acquire Oracle consultant Delexian.

The buy still rested on contract execution which is expected within the next 14 days. There was no figure named for the deal. Certified Oracle advantage partner Delexian serves private and government customers in Perth, Melbourne and Canberra. CSG intends to integrate it into its enterprise services division and would use it as part of the expansion into the east coast market.

CSG CEO Denis Mackenzie said the acquisition built the company's Oracle capability and added to its client and skills base: "The Delexian acquisition positions CSG to provide a full range of enterprise software, solutions and services across the two dominant vendor markets; Microsoft and Oracle."

This is the second Oracle specialist CSG has bought in recent times. It also snapped up CingleVue, which provided Oracle services to customers in the education sector, in October last year.

In the same month, CSG expanded its horizons by buying Commander's contract portfolio. Although it lost some of them that had gone to tender before the acquisition, the company still won itself a foothold in the Canberra market. Two months earlier it had also acquired a printer fleet management firm.
