Red Man Technologies, a business integration company whose consultants have specialised in IBM’s WebSphere middleware since its inception in the early 1990s, has been awarded IBM Advanced Partner status.

The status is conferred in recognition of an organisation’s commitment to maintaining a prosperous relationship with IBM through developing skills related to IBM products and service, developing and selling solutions using IBM technology, driving IBM revenue, and achieving and maintaining customer satisfaction.
Kevin Derman, IBM SA channel manager, says that the support in terms of skills and business development as well as marketing collateral that is provided to business partners through IBM’s PartnerWorld Program, is geared to enable the kind of win-win situations for which Red Man Technologies has been recognised.
“We try to make it as easy as possible for our business partners to use our technology to help customers do better business. Red Man Technologies has clearly made full use of this and so we’re delighted to be able to enhance our support and collaborate even more closely with them on sales and implementations.
“We foresee considerable growth in this partnership, particularly because WebSphere is the ideal tool for on-demand business – providing the application and transaction infrastructure on which customers can most easily build and run flexible, secure applications and business processes that integrate people, content and systems. Websphere is the future of modern business and Red Man Technologies has proved that they have the necessary skills to take this technology to market.”
