In 2018, the CANCOM Group acquired UK businesses Ocean Intelligent Communication and OCSL. This formed CANCOM Group’s UK hub, and CANCOM UK was born. A year later, in 2019, Novosco was acquired, along with its offices present throughout the island of Ireland (Ireland and Northern Ireland).

In January 2021, all three businesses became CANCOM UK&I and in July 2021, CANCOM Group sold CANCOM UK&I in its entirety to Telefonica S.A.


Founded in 1990 as Organised Computer Systems Ltd, or OCSL, the company started as a strong consultative resell business focused on hardware, client server and virtualisation. In 2008, it moved into Managed Services and Cloud Solutions with the acquisition of SanSource. In 2015, it acquired Rockpool IT to expand its consultancy offering by introducing a Flexible Resourcing Service.

In August 2018, OCSL became part of the CANCOM Group and formed part of the strategic hub for UK.
