Data Strategy to Merge with Indianapolis-based Network Storage


GRAND RAPIDS — Data Strategy LLC, a technology solutions provider, has signed a letter of intent to merge with Network Storage Inc., another technology solutions provider headquartered in Indianapolis.

The transaction, expected to close at the end of September, will result in a combined workforce of nearly 100 full-time employees across six locations, including Grand Rapids, Detroit, Louisville, Cincinnati, and two in Indianapolis.

“We are invested in our clients, our company and our employees, and partnering with NSI makes sense for us as we look to strengthen our regional footprint and expand our capabilities,” said Dana Jacks, executive vice president at Data Strategy. “NSI is a seamless fit with our company’s culture and commitment to exceptional customer service.”

Officials from both companies noted that the merger will strengthen their affiliation with vendor partners, such as EMC², Cisco, VMware, and HP. The transaction will give both companies improved logistical capabilities and a more robust portfolio of products, services and solutions.
