International resellers on board as demand for NZ business software grows

“It’s exciting to see this innovative, Kiwi-developed software meet an international need, and we’re ready to make the most of the opportunity.”

New Zealand-based IT consultancy firm Theta has entered into a partnership agreement with Seattle-based Talus Solutions Group for the marketing, sale, implementation and support of Six Degrees in the United States.

Six Degrees is a budgeting, planning and forecasting system built on the MicroStrategy Enterprise Analytics platform, using Microsoft SQL Server with the deal representing the second international reseller agreement this year for the Kiwi-developed enterprise planning software.

Talus however, is an established MicroStrategy partner, with significant business intelligence and human capital management expertise and several blue-chip customers.

“We’re delighted to be representing Six Degrees in the US market,” says Russ Anders, CEO, Talus.

“It occupies a unique niche in the planning software market, and partnering with Six Degrees means that we didn’t have to develop our own planning and forecasting solution.

“It also provides an excellent platform for us to develop enhanced reporting and analytics for our human capital management solution.

“It’s definitely something our customers are interested in, and we’re looking forward to working with Theta on new product features.”

Established in 1995, Theta employs over 170 staff and offices in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch, helping organisations to transform their businesses with technology, by designing, delivering and supporting solutions across business intelligence, software development, business solutions and systems management.

“It’s exciting to see this innovative, Kiwi-developed software meet an international need, and we’re ready to make the most of the opportunity,” adds Susan Paterson, Chair, Theta.

“Talus’ extensive experience in the people side of planning will help us further develop Six Degrees, not just as resellers, but as collaborative development partners.

“Their access to companies like Amazon, Starbucks, Boeing and Expedia will help Theta take Six Degrees to the world.”

Together with Project X in Toronto who signed earlier this year, Theta now has two resellers in North America, and continues to develop a partner ecosystem to extend coverage and business opportunities.

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
