Theta acquires IGA Systems, grows SharePoint team in NZ

17 Apr 15

Theta, the Kiwi IT consultancy firm, completed its acquisition of SharePoint consultancy IGA Systems last month and has grown its SharePoint team to eight specialist consultants based in Auckland and Christchurch.

Theta’s SharePoint team recently achieved silver status in Content and Collaboration, Microsoft’s SharePoint competency.  

Rob Lee, Theta CEO, says, “Achieving silver partner status depends on customer references, and demonstrates consistent performance in a particular business area.

“With IGA Systems on board, Theta now has even more capacity to deliver great content and collaboration solutions.”

IGA Systems was established in 2005 and is one of the few specialist SharePoint firms in New Zealand.

The company has been recognised several times at the Microsoft New Zealand Partner Awards and Theta says it is widely considered a market leader in this technology.

Ignacio Montenegro, IGA Systems managing director, joins Theta as head of SharePoint and collaboration solutions, along with three other experienced SharePoint consultants.

Montenegro says, “We’re excited IGA Systems has become part of an organisation that fits so well with our aspirations and culture.

“Theta is a dynamic company with the resources and expertise to support our existing customers. Together we’re really well positioned to grow the SharePoint area of the business.”

Rob Lee, Theta CEO, says, “This is a great opportunity for Theta, and for our customers.

“Ignacio and his team have a wealth of experience and a fantastic reputation in the market.

“The acquisition further enhances our SharePoint offering, which sits at the intersection of many things we do.”

SharePoint is a key component of Microsoft’s business application suite and is part of Office 365 – Microsoft’s cloud desktop offering.

SharePoint is also central for Microsoft BI delivery and is increasingly a platform for delivering line of business applications.
