Dialog Information Technology (Dialog) is pleased to welcome a new company to the group after acquiring 100% of Innodev shares. Innodev, a South Australian company was founded in 2007 and has 70 consultants based predominantly in Adelaide with a small team in Melbourne. Innodev provides a broad range of management and information technology consulting services to major corporate and government clients.

Tim Browne, Innodev’s founder and Managing Director, remains on board and is excited by the expanded horizons that being part of a larger group offers. Tim will lead the combined Dialog/Innodev team in SA and will also manage a number of national initiatives.

Dialog Information Technology is one of Australia’s leading technology services organisations trading nationally from offices in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Perth, Darwin, and Adelaide. Established in 1979, Dialog is Australian owned and employs over 1,200 information technology specialists. Dialog supports a ‘can do’ approach that encourages local decision-making by appropriate team members.

“Being part of the Dialog group tangibly expands our knowledge and experience, provides access to new opportunities and will enable us to continue to build upon our established successes. I look forward to being involved in Australia’s leading privately owned IT services organisation working closely with these inspirational leaders”, Mr Browne said.

Innodev’s application software consulting services capability will be transitioned into the Dialog Brand whilst Innodev’s testing practice will be merged into the AccessHQ Adelaide team.

Innodev’s specialist Business Agility Coaching and Consulting team uses Agile methods and practices to help organisations transform and modernise their business operations. This team will become a nationally focused specialist group within Dialog.

The acquisition includes two subsidiary companies, Innodev Indigenous Consulting and Scrum Australia, which will continue to grow and prosper under the Dialog group umbrella. Innodev Indigenous, now trading as Garu InfoTech is tasked with contributing towards the growth of indigenous participation in Australia’s ICT Sector.

Dialog have considerable capability and critical mass in the Adelaide market with over 120 consultants permanently employed with plans to continue to expand. We are also very excited to continue to support the indigenous tech employment initiatives working closely with the indigenous communities and universities”, Dialog’s CEO Alan Key said.
