Welcoming C2SCG to the Smartronix family, Sankovich said, “The acquisition of C2SCG strengthens our unique market position as a leader in multi-cloud solutions and digital transformation. The addition of top talent from C2SCG and that of recently acquired Datastrong, combined with our in-house expertise, truly advances our vision to empower clients with innovative cloud solutions and data intelligence to realize the maximum return on their strategic investments.”
