Connx Solutions, a provider of simplified data access management and integration software solutions, has struck a Middle East partnership agreement with Jordanian IT services and systems integration outfit Pioneers Information Technologies (Pio-Tech).
Working together, Pio-Tech and Connx plan to efficient management solutions with a focus on the banking industry. Pio-Tech has already established partnerships with a number of IT vendors, integrating their various solutions with core industry-specific applications. Pio-Tech is now using Connx for data connectivity to Oracle and SQL Server data sources as well as for hard to access data sources and flat files such as C-ISAM.
“Pio-Tech has committed itself to a lasting and successful presence in the Middle East, and to this day has invested heavily in recruiting highly qualified and experienced personnel,” said Rand Hashem, managing director at Pio-Tech.
“We are confident that our experience will aid in exposing Connx to the evolving and promising Middle East marketing by introducing Connx to both the end customers and technology providers in our area. We had a project to implement a data warehouse and business intelligence solution at a bank, which used a closed banking system based on C-ISAM files,” Hashem continued.
“For more than six months, we were unable to properly access the data for the needed data integration until we were introduced to Connx. We were immediately impressed with the feature content of Connx, its ease of use, and the professional service provided by the Connx team. Using Connx, we were able in just two weeks to set up a proof of concept, build a pilot model, and successfully demonstrate a solution for the customer. We have already had interest from other customers with similar requirements who wish to expand current project scope and implement a data warehouse solution using Connx and the data synchronisation tool,” Hashem concluded.
Shirley McKinney, director of business development at Connx, commented: “The success Pio-Tech has experienced again confirms significant benefits are achieved with the high-performance distributed architecture Connx brings to the marketplace. The total solution with a major BI vendor coupled with the robust solution for gathering incremental changes made to databases guarantees a secure and flexible reusable solution. Pio-Tech is Connx Solutions’ entry into the Middle East.”
Jordan-based Pio-Tech offers a range of IT services including application development, database management, consulting, systems integration and data warehousing. The company already works with a number of major vendors including Oracle, Microsoft and Business Objects.
