By Anil Sharma, TMCnet Contributor
Motio, a producer of the largest breadth of software products designed to extend IBM (News - Alert) Cognos, has entered into a partnership with Focus Business Solutions to strengthen Motio’s reach in Argentina, Chile, Peru and other emerging high-growth markets in South America.
Focus Business Solutions specializes in offering business management solutions to clients which includes the full spectrum of enterprise integration, business intelligence and information management.
“Since Focus is a trusted advisor to our customers, we have made the decision to include Motio’s solutions in our offerings to generate more value for our customers,” said Gonzalo Herrero, president, Focus Business Solutions, in a statement.
Herrero said that knowledge of the best value-added software is where partners can generate real value for their customers. The right value-added software can increase performance, drive operational efficiency, reduce the cost of investments and generate information to audit the access and publications for governance and compliance.
“Consequently, Focus will present the Motio Solutions to our customers,” he added.
Further, Focus Business Solutions will resell the company’s full suite of products that extend and streamline Cognos. This includes the company’s flagship product MotioCI, which provides version control, automated testing and release management capabilities for Cognos, as well as MotioPI, which has a free and economically priced professional version that eases the burdens many report authors, modelers and administrators face on a daily basis by automating error-prone and tedious tasks.
"I am very excited about our collaboration with Focus Business Solutions. With Focus as our business partner, we strengthen our position in Argentina and extend to two other important markets: Chile and Peru. With this partnership, we are able to assist Focus’ IBM Cognos clients in lowering their cost and effort of implementing, migrating and maintaining their IBM Cognos BI environment," commented Edwin van Megesen, sales director of South America, Motio.
