In November, Beta Systems Software AG entered into a sales partnership with SoftPlex, Inc. based in Tokyo. The IBM Premier Business Partner, who specializes in the configuration and maintenance of z/OS systems, will now implement IBM-based data center intelligence projects using products from Beta Systems.
SoftPlex, the latest addition to the Beta Systems network of sales partners, helps to set the perfect stage for an increased engagement on the Japanese market. The company, which has grown a loyal customer base in Japan over the years, sells software products and services for the IBM mainframe platform, specializing in RACF/security, output management and workload automation.
SoftPlex is already a partner of Beta Systems subsidiary HORIZONT Software, a workload automation and scheduling expert who provides products that facilitate the automation, documentation and analysis of mainframe-based IT processes in the data center.
Yasuhiro Kasai, Representative Director at SoftPlex: “The solutions from Beta System ideally complement this portfolio, allowing us to offer our z/OS customers a broader range of products. Japan has an evolved mainframe landscape, so there is ample need for output and log management, archiving, job control and other solutions that help companies optimize their data center operations.”
Walter Teichert, Director Partner Development at Beta Systems, adds: “Japan is a key target market for mainframe products, and system integrator SoftPlex has built a strong network there over the years – making them the perfect choice to help us grow our local presence over the coming months.” The cooperation with SoftPlex will serve as a gateway for Beta Systems’ greatly increased engagement in the Asia-Pacific region.
