Ottawa, Canada – February 23, 2017 – DataKinetics, the global leader in data performance and optimization solutions, officially announced today that it is once again expanding its offerings and alignment with the IBM z Systems™ Marketplace by delivering even greater value to global Fortune 500 IBM z Systems users.

The partnership between the two companies will further enable global Fortune 500 firms to receive increased value from their IBM z Systems investments—value that far transcends simple mainframe performance and optimization—while simultaneously extending DataKinetics’ reach and commitment into mixed-mainframe and distributed environments.

The continued push from DataKinetics to support the IBM z Systems Marketplace will provide customers with unique insights into their company’s entire complex IT infrastructure, delivering information that is useful to all stakeholders and enabling the business and IT departments to make fact-based decisions more quickly.

Complementing its official strategic partnerships with zCost Management, HostBridge, InSoft Infotel, and SQData, the partnership with SMT Data adds a new member to DataKinetics’ world-renowned mainframe company alliance of ISVs focused on driving greater value from their clients’ z Systems investments.

Partners who are highly vetted and scrutinized to meet those standards that best represent our Fortune 500 clients’ needs,” commented Allan Zander, CEO of DataKinetics. “It is for this reason that we are so pleased to announce our partnership with SMT Data. Their expertise, product leadership, and longstanding relationships with other global Fortune 500 customers and IT systems integrators make them a perfect fit. Together, the combined value that our respective companies can now bring to the industry will bring about a new era of possibilities for the mainframe world.”

“The dedication that DataKinetics brings to delivering superior solutions to the Fortune 500 spoke volumes when forming our strategic partnership,” said Jan Vilstrup, CEO of SMT Data. “Their leadership in data access optimization and enduring relationships with the world’s top companies, coupled with their technical expertise, were clear indicators that they uphold the same values as we do—ensuring customer success at every turn. Now, by combining our cloud and on-premises IT Business Intelligence solutions with DataKinetics’ zSystems skills—the partnership represents an offering unmatched by any other vendor.”

With the SMT Data partnership now official, together with the partnerships with zCost Management, SQData, HostBridge, and InSoft Infotel, Fortune 500 companies will be able to benefit significantly from DataKinetics’ vast offerings.
