Informatica signs NZ cloud reseller

25 May 2010

Cloud consultant Sqware Peg has signed a partnership with Informatica to resell its cloud to New Zealand, Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore.   According to a statement the partnership will enable Sqware Peg to resell Informatica’s Cloud Services solutions across Asia Pacific. The agreement will also enable the Australian, SaaS-based integrator to build out an extensive cloud integration services practice. Shawn Stilwell, Managing Director, Sqware Peg, said, “Our new relationship with Informatica is a great move forward for Sqware Peg in the Asia Pacific region and for our hundreds of customers. Consuming enterprise integration tools on an on-demand, subscription basis has only recently become available and this means the addressable market is now much wider.   “Informatica has traditionally built and integrated their technology in an on-premise format and has deployed successfully to many large and international enterprises. Traditionally this required very powerful onsite infrastructure and implementation. This isn’t required now as these same tools are now driven through the browser. This geography is ready for a quality-driven, subscription-based cloud technology player like Informatica with its unique approach and Sqware Peg looks forward to this compelling and exciting partnership.”   Sqware Peg estimates there are “hundreds” of companies in Australia and New Zealand who are in need of a cloud integration service. Ron Papas, General Manager, Informatica Cloud, added, “We were looking for a leading cloud systems integrator in Australia to take our business forward and realised that Sqware Peg uniquely understands the importance of integration to cloud computing success.”

“As data becomes more and more fragmented, Informatica Cloud Services empowers customers to access and integrate all their cloud data easily and cost-effectively. Working with Sqware Peg means customers will benefit from their successful track record, regional momentum and reputation for customer success,” Papas added.   Pic
