IT solutions and managed services provider Thomas Duryea Logicalis (TDL) has undergone a restructure of its business over a year after Logicalis acquired Thomas Duryea.

Michael Chanter, chief executive, TDL says the company has restructured the business to align with market conditions, streamlining it into two main areas of operation – Digital Transformation and Service Delivery.

Chanter says that under the new business model four key practices will be established as part of the Digital Transformation area – Hybrid Infrastructure, Modern Workspace, Data & Analytics, and Security.

“As organisations try to navigate digital transformation of their business, our primary objective is to help them identify where they are on their transformation journey, and assist them with the technology and organisation changes required to stay competitive.

“Hybrid Infrastructure and Modern Workplace, which is all about the end-user experience, has always underpinned our business. But to align with the new market conditions, we have added two more key practices to our new go-to-market strategy – Data & Analytics, which focuses on the strategic value of data; and Security, which provides wrap-around security against threats, vulnerabilities, and cyber-attacks across our entire services portfolio.”

As part of the restructure, TDL announced that Damian Zammit has been promoted to general manager, transformation services, responsible for establishing, and developing the four key practices that fall under Digital Transformation.

Chanter says Zammit’s priority is expanding the local team’s skills and capability, which includes the recruitment of two senior national practice managers who will be tasked with heading the newly formed Security and Data & Analytics practices.

The restructure also sees Christopher Lafferty promoted to general manager, service delivery, responsible for overseeing the Managed Services, Outsourcing and Cloud Services practices.

Ransomware is a type of malware that blocks access to your files and systems until you pay a ransom.

The first example of ransomware happened on September 5, 2013, when Cryptolocker was unleashed.

It quickly affected many systems with hackers requiring users to pay money for the decryption keys.
