ApexManage partner with AssurIT to deliver iSeries Managed Services to leading Irish Client

ApexManage is a Prime Managed Service Provider (PMSP) for IT infrastructure services and has partnered with AssurIT to deliver 24/7 iSeries Managed Services to one of its overseas clients.

The client, one of Ireland's best known iconic retail brands and leading Film and Games retailer, required additional iSeries support to ensure it's IT Systems coped with increased workloads, as their business presence in Music, Mobile Telephony, Consumer Electronic and Confectionery grew.

Further to the recent partnership agreement between ApexManage and AssurIT, AssurIT's in-depth iSeries skill sets and leading position of providing iSeries System Management Solutions, was a natural fit to assist ApexManage with meeting their Client's requirements. The foremost of these was to quickly capture, report and resolve performance bottlenecks, which was a consequence of a fast growing business and to start to provide a proactive 24/7 monitoring service.

Tony Over, Head of ApexManage writes "We are very pleased how AssurIT has reacted in a short period of time to resolve our client's initial iSeries system performance concerns and to provide ongoing iSeries system performance metrics that aid both ApexManage and it's clients management teams in their decision making processes".
