2 Acquisition International - Issue 1 2019 From our Editor As we welcome the new year, this month’s issue of Acquisition Intl. takes a look into new ideas in business for 2019. In recent news, one of the world’s second largest mobility suppliers together with Canadian, Québec and Montréal government officials, DENSO has recently announced that it has opened a satellite research and development (R&D) lab in Montréal, Canada. Research activities in Montréal will focus primarily on innovations in advanced technology such as artificial intelligence (AI). In this month’s issue, we discover how Altaro, a fast-growing developer of easy-to-use backup solutions for managed service providers (MSPs), IT resellers and IT departments, delivers affordable enterprise-class functionality, while avoiding unnecessary features that add cost and undue complexity. Elsewhere in this edition, Naail & Co is a forward thinking, Chartered Certified accounting practice. Following the remarkable accomplishments the firm have recently achieved, we decided to profile it to find out more about the work it undertakes and how this has helped drive the practice to the success it enjoys today. Also in this issue, Concept Consult Architects is an Architecture Studio which was founded by Australian Architect, David Linford. Following their success in AI’s 2018 Global Excellence Awards, we profiled the firm to discover more about the innovative services that the team at Concept Consult Architects provides to their clients.
