IntegrationWorks has launched its business in the UK, with the specialist enterprise integration consultancy leveraging its partnership with IBM Hybrid Cloud.

Catering to market demands for integration expertise and 24/7 integration managed services, the Kiwi integrator will be partnering with IBM Hybrid Cloud to deliver optimum integration solutions through strategy, architecture, devOps and support services.

Originating in mountainous New Zealand, the company aims to provide high-end integration expertise for enterprise, having recently taken out the global IBM Beacon Award for Outstanding Middleware Solutions in 2016.

With a focus on increasing connectivity between on-premise, hybrid and cloud systems, IntegrationWorks aims to enhance the maturity of integration practices for enterprises across the banking and financial services sector in the UK.

Spearheading the operation is Bret Duffield, Managing Director of IntegrationWorks UK, who will work closely with Kiwi counterparts to ensure each UK-based client is supported and maintained under the company’s managed service model.

“Enterprises in the UK today a huge appetite for digital transformation and are realising that the way to optimise their legacy systems, move to the cloud and build new digital services is through innovative integration platforms,” Duffield says.

“However, enterprises globally lack the internal expertise and ability to build these integration platforms on large scale, while making sure they are flexible and robust.

“Critically too, being able to support and maintain those systems comes at a financial and resource cost.”

Taking advantage of the time differences between both countries, Duffield says around-the-clock managed integration services will be on hand for UK clients; delivered and supported by the 55 person strong architectural and development team based in New Zealand.

As a result, the IntegrationWorks managed service model will be aligning closely with clients to develop integration strategy and road-mapping, design integration layers through architecture and custom building integration platforms, finally deploying onto a 24/7 support and monitoring system.

In addition, Duffield says project based consultancy services plus vendor procurement will make up the entire IntegrationWorks service model for the time-being, with the aim to launch a maturity-assessment product to market later this year.

While historically being a vendor agnostic consultancy, IntegrationWorks UK will be partnering with IBM for technology solutions and utilsing skill of the IntegrationWorks developers who have expertise across the IBM Hybrid Cloud suite.

“Aside from being a strategically brilliant move for our business, our customers around the world will benefit from our UK operations,” Duffield adds.

“Our Northern Hemisphere clients will receive the same great 24/7 optimum performance support that we currently provide for our Southern Hemisphere clients.

“As we grow and expand the UK technical team, globally it will be a win-win for our staff and customers who will receive first-class service from either the UK or New Zealand depending on the time of day.”
