PDS Acquires Linux Based Provident Technologies

All Provident staff will join PDS as part of the acquisition

Paragon Development Systems (PDS) announced that it has acquired Provident Technologies. The terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

The Sheboygan-based Provident Technologies is a Novell Platinum partner specializing in identity management and Linux-based solutions with engineering and sales divisions in Sheboygan, Madison and Milwaukee. The company is also an authorized sales and service repair facility for Hewlett Packard and Samsung printers, HP workstations, laptops and tablet PCs.

"The merger of PDS and Provident Technologies will enable the company to offer its customers high-value IT solutions, which gives them the flexibility and agility to deliver on their organization's IT objectives," said Joe McLaughlin, vice president of partner and channel sales for Novell.

All Provident staff will be joining PDS as part of the acquisition, including COO Angela Daniels, who will head PDS's provisioning and platform management software services as a Director in the Computing Architecture group. As part of the transition, PDS will maintain an office in the Sheboygan area indefinitely.
