ANNOUNCE STRATEGIC ALLIANCE
OpenVMS developer teams up with the top OpenVMS managed service provider to fill OpenVMS IT expertise gap.
Bolton, MA & Nashua, NH, September 28, 2015 — VMS Software, Inc. (VSI), the exclusive developer of the OpenVMS operating system, and Software Concepts International (SCI), the industry leader in OpenVMS Managed Services, today announced their strategic alliance to provide highly reliable, proven, system and database managed services and consulting for mission critical OpenVMS systems.
“One of the greatest challenges facing the OpenVMS platform is an OpenVMS IT expertise gap that is making it difficult for customers to adequately manage and maintain mission critical OpenVMS environments across the globe,” said Duane P. Harris, CEO of VMS Software. “In response to this challenge, VSI is proactively building a grand, professional services alliance, including the best service providers on the platform, to systematically address the expertise gap. SCI was invited to join the VSI Professional Services Alliance to give VSI’s customers access to top notch remote managed services for their OpenVMS systems and databases.”
It takes great skill and a level of care that goes well beyond a ‘help desk’ approach to successfully manage servers in the extreme, mission critical environment that OpenVMS primarily serves. VSI invited SCI to join the VSI Professional Services Alliance because of SCI’s reputation for meeting and beating this high level of care. Furthermore, SCI delivers a unique, proactive management service that constantly monitors key system resources 24x7—anticipating and frequently resolving potential problems before they impact a customer’s business. With SCI in the alliance, VSI can now offer these services directly to its customers, under one VSI contract.
In addition to SCI’s proven managed services offerings,
the VSI/SCI alliance also provides OpenVMS customers access to SCI’s
extensive transition and migration expertise. VSI/SCI migration offerings
span the range from custom migration assessments to hardware refreshes,
application ports, or all the way to full migration of OpenVMS VAX or Alpha
environments to OpenVMS Integrity.
