We are wildly excited to announce that SMS and Curvature are merging to become one. Through our combined complementary offerings we will be the undisputed global leader of best-in-class IT services, products, and solutions. We wanted to take a moment to personally address what this will mean for our current and future customers as well the effect this merger will have on your choices within the IT landscape.
Like many great innovative companies – Microsoft, Hewlett-Packard, Amazon – Curvature launched as an idea over 30 years ago, with a single employee and out of a small home facility. At the beginning this was all about solving customers’ needs for safe, reliable, reasonably priced IBM and Cisco network hardware that matched their budget and requirements, not just the interests of an arbitrary OEM timeline. Since then our company and our services have grown as our customers’ trust in us have grown. You’ve looked to us to support more and more of your network and data center needs and this merger means we’ve been listening.
This transaction is one that amplifies and extends our mission through our complementary companies’ offerings: empower our customers on a global scale to have choices in their network and data center IT lifecycle management and services. Together with SMS, we are over 2,000 employees strong, speaking 19 languages, in offices in 12 countries, supporting 1.25M devices and making us more than 4x larger than our nearest competitor. SMS and Curvature have both been recognized by leading analyst firms as having best-in-class capabilities with highly complementary product and service offerings. Together, we will provide a much broader portfolio of IT services and products to our customers’ organizations of all sizes around the world.
That said, we will continue to operate in the same way so you don’t have to change a thing about the way you are doing business with us. Now you just have a lot more ways, places, and languages to do business with us. Together, we believe in enabling IT freedom to allow customer options, flexibility, and new solutions that empower the most productive and inspiriting use of their IT assets with utter reliability.
For more information, check out our press release and stay tuned as we continue to share the latest updates and service benefits on this merger.
