We are excited to grow our ITSM and APM services practice with the addition of the NorthWind team.”

“I am thrilled to be joining the Sirius family. Sirius is known for investing in technical resources and expertise, and I am excited our team has the opportunity to grow its ITSM practice within the Sirius organization,” said Michael Todd, owner and chief technology officer of NorthWind. “As IBM’s largest solution provider in the world, Sirius has deep access to IBM resources that will benefit our clients.
