MOBILE software specialist Dexterra says it has benefited from HP’s October purchase of IT consulting company CGNZ.
Drew Mitchell, Dexterra vice president Asia-Pacific, says his company had an existing partnership with CGNZ that HP has decided to maintain.
“Which means that HP will now be talking to its customer base about mobility. That has certainly extended Dexterra’s reach in New Zealand,” he says.
Dexterra also partners with Planwell and globally with Motorola, Unisys and EDS.
Mitchell predicts substantial growth in deployment next year.
“That’s when we’ll see bigger and better deals being done because the mobility demand is there. EDS, for example, is doing masses of work at the moment.”
He says Dexterra’s Concert 4 platform has taken the development of smart client applications to a vastly different level including the small to medium enterprise (SME) sector.
“It may well be that Concert 4 will appeal to smaller players in the software market. Traditionally our major VARs have been focused on the enterprise space, but even in the SME sector it makes a terrific cross-sell or upsell.” In addition Dexterra has released a series of off-the-shelf applications for vertical areas that Mitchell believes resellers will find attractive.
