The partners say they will offer help and guidance for those enterprises looking to re-platform and replace elements of their Oracle estate to drive down software costs
TmaxSoft, the specialist in middleware and enterprise IT infrastructure, has brought in Concorde as its latest partner.
South Korean firm TmaxSoft recently entered the UK market with a portfolio of mission-critical enterprise software, which includes the TIBERO relational database management system.
Concorde has developed its SaaS product Core Control to aggregate all of the software and licensing information owned within an enterprise and automate complex Software Asset Management functions.
Concorde is not only able to quickly and accurately audit a client’s software estate, it can also identify ways to reduce costs, mitigate risk and transform business processes.
Joe Kim, managing director of TmaxSoft UK, said: “Over the past six months we have driven the business forward here in the UK, working to develop not only an extensive distribution network for our enterprise software products, including TIBERO and JEUS, but establishing a number of strategic business partnerships with some of the leading ISVs in the UK.
“Integral to that process was the hunt for partners that understood our core proposition of reducing licensing costs and reducing the risk associated with the cost of software throughout the IT estate.”
He said: “Both TmaxSoft and Concorde share one united vision: providing the end user community with information to enable them to make informed choices around cost savings across the software estate.”
Martin Prendergast (pictured), CEO at Concorde, said: “Finding and working with great partners is core to our growth strategy. Through our Core Control platform the end user gets complete visibility of the level of financial exposure they face in terms of licensing.
“The information we deliver is therefore invaluable in determining the overall cost and risk to the business from software audits, and no more so than in the Oracle environment.”
He said: “We are delighted that TmaxSoft has recognised our expertise in Oracle licensing and the work we do to save customers money. Our partnership now offers customers the option of a far more transparent licensing regime, and one that is more cost effective.”
The two companies are planning a number of networking and promotional events over the forthcoming months, at which they aim to help end users identify unused or even unlicensed software, and in doing so potentially reduce those firms’ financial exposure.
At the same time the partners say they will offer help and guidance for those enterprises looking to re-platform and replace elements of their Oracle estate to drive software costs down still further.
