Build a business case: developing custom apps

Compulink Information eXchange (CIX) the ISP beloved of so many UK journos, has snapped up the customer base and hosting assets of Connect 2Internet, another UK ISP. The deal, for an undisclosed sum, is one of a number of acquisitions planned to boost CIX's presence in the UK ISP market. Graham Davies, CIX sales and marketing director, said: "We are pleased to announce the first of a series of acquisitions in the UK ISP market, which is part of our strategy to expand and grow our business in the UK." Davies went on to say that the Connect 2Internet deal would give CIX a robust NT-based backbone. "It is imperative that we are able to meet the ever increasing needs of our customer base for both Unix and NT web server hosting," he said. CIX was set up in 1984, its email service began in 1987 and it first offered Web services in 1992. It was recently the subject of a management buyout, backed by Legal & General Ventures. It will continue to operate and maintain the Connect 2Internet servers at the new addition's London headquarters. ®
