DataKinetics Bolsters Reseller Partnerships as Demand for Mainframe Cost Reduction Intensifies

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 23, 2010) - Just six months after initiating its first reseller partnerships, DataKinetics announced today that it has entered into reseller agreements with three more important international partners. The global strategy allows the company to establish footholds in the United Kingdom through RSM Partners (, in South America through Sun Software ( and in Australia and Asia through Serus Software (SSZ) (

DataKinetics products allow large mainframe operators like banks, insurance companies and financial services companies to save millions by optimizing existing IT resources rather than committing to expensive and large-scale upgrade projects, or complete IT infrastructure swap-out projects.

Increases in operational efficiencies help companies dramatically advance their IT productivity, allowing IT departments to tackle far more projects without increasing IT staff levels. Further, DataKinetics' optimization and modernization products profoundly improve the performance of their systems, to the point that more drastic modernization measures are unnecessary.

"Using DataKinetics solutions has saved North American mainframe operators more than $3.0 billion since the introduction of the company's flagship product, DataKinetics tableBASE, more than 20 years ago," says Allan Zander, CEO of DataKinetics. "While we currently work with many of the largest companies in North America and Europe, we are expanding our focus to global markets in general. Through these new partnerships, we hope to help companies all over the world save significantly on their IT modernization projects."

RSM Partners is a UK-based company focussed on providing excellence in technical and consultancy services, specialising in business critical systems deployed on IBM's System z Platform.

"We enter partnerships with only those companies with a demonstrated track record of providing value to their customers," says Mark Wilson, Technical Director at RSM Partners. "With DataKinetics 30-plus years of delivering optimization and performance solutions, and their unparalleled client list, we're confident that their technology will make a difference to our mainframe customers."

In Australia, SSZ is a leading software and service provider for the Australian and Asian IT Industries, and services many IBM mainframe operators within the financial and insurance sectors.

"SSZ is always looking for the best optimization and cost saving tools for our clients in Australia," says Russell Pantlin, CEO of SSZ. "DataKinetics tableBASE has been providing significant savings and performance improvement to North American Fortune 500 companies for many years. We saw this as the perfect fit for our customers' needs."

Sun Software is a leading software and service provider for the IT Industry in Brazil, and services the South American banking industry, which is the third largest in the world.

"DataKinetics gives us the specialized products to significantly increase our services value to our customers," says Mr. José Curcelli, President of Sun Software. "This partnership strengthens our position within our key markets; the DataKinetics optimization technology aligns perfectly with our mission of promoting the economic and operational growth of our customers."
