Edge IPK, the leader in SOA presentation layer technology, today announced a signed distribution agreement with innovative UK based systems integrator, Milan Solutions Limited.
The agreement will further extend edge IPK's reach to the South Asian subcontinent, as Milan Solutions act as their master distributer in India, where there is increasing competition for limited IT skills coupled with organisations seeking to reduce costs.
"Following privatization, India witnessed exponential market growth. Yet now, in the midst of a recession, it seems that the need for efficiency over quantity has become a key priority within these cost-cutting organisations. More and more, companies within the region are turning to outsourcing as a method of coping with inflated costs which is creating greater competition for limited IT staff" said Anil Jogani, Director of Milan Solutions. "With this in mind, we strongly believe that edge IPK is capable of meeting this current economic demand by enabling companies to improve the efficiency and productivity of its employees as opposed to simply hiring more, cheaper, less productive resources. We believe that this approach will also provide guaranteed customer centricity and long-term business sustainability."
Implementing the edgeConnect presentation platform will allow companies throughout the region to expect numerous benefits such as scalability, ease of use, increased business agility, up to 50% faster time to market for new products or services and higher levels of employee productivity due to reductions in development time ranging from between 40 - 85%.
"edgeConnect has been developed to allow business analysts to be involved in the development process, enabling right first solutions and drastically reduced development times. edgeConnect also helps companies to get maximum return from their existing investments by its ability to integrate with existing IT infrastructures and legacy systems. Thereby helping financial service companies to save both money and resources, which is crucial given India's current economic pressure and increasing IT skills shortage. We feel confident that with Milan Solutions distribution expertise, local relationships and industry knowledge, we can ensure a successful break into this dynamic marketplace," said Dharmesh Mistry, COO/CTO, edgeIPK.
Milan Solutions specialises in channel development expertise, and has deep knowledge of the Indian IT industry. By creating integrator and VAR relationships, Milan Solutions has developed key relationships within a vast contact base which will undoubtedly prove advantageous when taking edge IPK's flagship product, edgeConnect, to market. It will also set up an implementation and support team in India to help customers and partners of edgeConnect.
