IBM today announced that it has acquired Optevia, a privately owned Software as a service, (SaaS), systems integrator specializing in Microsoft Dynamics CRM solutions for public sector organizations.

Optevia's main focus on UK Emergency Services, Central Government, Local Government, Health Authorities and Housing and Social Enterprises, allows them to offer their clients highly differentiated solutions. Optevia's client base includes ministries, councils, regulators, licensing and grant management organizations, transport authorities and social housing organizations.
