Local NSC team unaffected by end of Sun business

Local NSC team unaffected by end of Sun business

NSC New Zealand, established as a branch of Australian-based NSC Group last March, has grown to eight staff and plans to add three to four before the end of the 2010. The integrator originally hired six former Sun Microsystems staff in New Zealand, but recently announced it had shut down its Sun business unit. Australian-based managing director Craig Neil told Australian Reseller News the global recession and Oracle's proposal to buy Sun last year combined to result in poor sales. He also told the newspaper that Oracle's channel model didn't match NSC's, nor allow it carry out its annuity business. Of the six staff to join NSC New Zealand from Sun, three left last year including former Sun country manager John Mazenier, who joined Tata Consultancy Services. Another, Malcolm Gibbs, joined Eagle Technology. However, the remaining three - a systems engineer and two salespeople - have transitioned to the company's unified communications business following the discontinuation of the Sun unit. NSC is an Avaya Platinum business partner and has also recently reignited its partnership with telephony specialist-vendor Genesys. It has also added the Nortel data product suite to its offerings. “We are entering our second year on an extremely positive note...with the addition of new technical and consulting resources currently being recruited," says NSC's Australian managing director Craig Neil on a recent visit to Auckland. The local business is supporting the New Zealand operations of Australian customers including ANZ, BOC and Flexigroup, while new local customers include Victoria University and Waikato University.
