Diversus Group plans smaller local presence

Diversus Group plans smaller local presence

Australian IT advisory and consultancy firm Diversus Group is still considering opening an office in Auckland or Wellington, but won’t be employing five people as originally envisaged.

Chief technologist Aaron Pickering says this is because it is not seeing the expected demand in the local market.

“We will look to fill the role of business development manager first. From there it will be an interesting call that will really be made by the demand of the marketplace.”

A date has not been set for the opening of the office, with Pickering expecting to make a decision by the second quarter.

The company works with NetApp as a third party to advise the vendor’s customers about consolidation and storage of business data, data protection and system operations and management.

Pickering says Diversus Group has recently expanded its vendor focus across the Tasman. “We are investing in increasing skills in Commvault, Cisco and VMware. We have intentionally limited the number of vendors that we are skilling in, this is to ensure that we still keep the recipe that has worked so well for us, being quality more so than quantity.” He adds the company has maintained solid growth, but says it doesn’t disclose earnings because it is privately owned.

“I can assure you that a high portion of earnings is being re-invested into the group. We hit some stumbling blocks last year, but with a strong team and strong relationships we are back in growth mode.”
