“The acquisition will bring two strategically aligned businesses together to deliver their technology and services across the African continent. This will bring a combined offering into the African market to deliver the best technologies available. We are very excited that our cross-border clients will benefit from Syrex’s strong hyper-converged solutions and inq.’s edge solutions and services.
