SDI Presence LLC (SDI) has acquired substantially all the assets of mission-critical systems integrator SDI Solutions LLC, ranked No. 16 on SDM’s Top Systems Integrators Report. SDI founder David A. Gupta will return as CEO.
Gupta founded SDI Solutions in 1996 as an information technology professional services firm serving local government, utilities and commercial real estate sectors. The firm quickly grew its services offering to include complex enterprise application deployments, mission-critical infrastructure services and integrated electronic security systems. Today, the firm’s client portfolio includes major government, airport, tolling, commercial banks and healthcare organizations, with SDI providing IT advisory services, technology deployment, and long-term managed services. SDI employs 130 business and technical professionals and credits its sterling customer satisfaction and SLA compliance records for its list of long-term marquee clients, the company reported in a press release.
“I am excited to return to a company that has always had a special place in the market,” Gupta said. “SDI’s unmatched dedication and investment in our clients have been a consistent differentiator over the past 20 years. Value-adding, risk-mitigating project delivery is what our company thrives on and will be a continued focus moving forward.”
In addition to SDI’s Chicago headquarters and Charleston office, the firm also merged with L.A.-based PGV Solutions, a full-service information technology systems integration firm based in Southern California started by Gupta in 2015. Coming together as SDI Presence, the firm will concentrate on its positioning as a trusted partner in its local regions to address the requirements of high-demand technology systems, including electronic security systems and enterprise applications including workforce management and customer billing systems.
“The name SDI Presence builds on the strong commitment to being present for our clients, partners, and community that has always been the hallmark of the firm,” Gupta said. “I am looking forward to reigniting the firm’s rich history of corporate citizenship, driving our team’s enormous potential to further serve our existing clients, and introducing SDI’s superior levels of service to new customers.”
