Hg agrees the sale of itm8 to Axcel

itm8 (formerly IT Relation) is represented at 19 locations in Denmark, Sweden, the Philippines and the Czech Republic. The group focuses on four business areas in Denmark; Cloud Services/IT Operations, Digital Transformation, Application Services and Cyber Security.
