(Unique Digital), a Texas-based IT Solutions Provider focused on architecting and implementing solutions in big data, cloud, data protection, networking, security, and virtualization.
Unique Digital’s CEO, Andy Pratt, will continue in his role along with the existing Unique Digital management team.

“We live in a data-driven world. Companies are leveraging large pools of data to formulate their business strategy. New technologies are being developed every day and with that, more data is being created. By joining the Converge family, we are confident that Unique Digital will better serve its customers by augmenting the existing offerings and solutions. We are excited to add Converge’s platform of offerings to new and existing customers.
