Paris – May 03, 2022 - Centreon, the reference partner for digital performance monitoring, today announced the acquisition of Artesys Orion, an Italian consulting and technology services company specialising in the integration and resale of IT software.
Through this acquisition, Centreon accelerates the development of its international activities, focused on the marketing of information systems supervision solutions for business performance. With this operation, Centreon develops its presence in Italy, the 6th largest European market for IT Operations, estimated to be worth $506 million by 2025, with an average annual growth rate of 11%.
Founded in 1999, Artesys Orion is active in all Italian industrial sectors, either as a direct service provider or through service partnerships.
