Global Open Source Software Leader WSO2 Pens VAR Agreement with DeARX Services
The partnership will see the companies delivering open source API management and integration solutions to support the digital transformation initiatives of customers in Southern Africa
Johannesburg, South Africa and Mountain View, CA, USA – April 2, 2019 – DeARX Services (DeARX), a South African integration specialist, and WSO2, an open source technology provider, have entered into an agreement in which DeARX has become a WSO2 value-added reseller (VAR) for Southern Africa.
The move builds on the strong, multi-year partnership between WSO2, the leading open source integration company, and DeARX an application integration specialist and WSO2 Certified Integration Partner.
As a VAR, DeARX will expand its collaboration with WSO2 in delivering open source technology solutions that support customers in the implementation of application and system integration projects while efficiently aligning their architectural needs and business goals. Additionally, the company will implement campaigns to increase awareness of the WSO2 Integration Agile Platform across Southern Africa.
DeARX leverages the skills and experience of a team passionate about modern integration technology combined with a commercial and financial focus to ensure real business value. Having many years’ experience within corporate IT, the team has crafted an offering based on WSO2’s Integration Agile Platform which accelerates time to value, reduces cost, and facilitates a highly agile and modern digital offering.
The VAR agreement follows the recent recognition of WSO2 by Forrester Research as a Leader in The Forrester WaveTM: API Management Solutions, Q4 2018 report1 published on October 29, 2018. In its evaluation of WSO2 API Manager, the report1 states, “As the only fully open source solution in our Forrester Wave analysis, WSO2 provides good breadth across all evaluation criteria. Particular strengths include formal life-cycle management and non-REST APIs, both of which facilitate mature and disciplined enterprise API strategies.”
“Our philosophy has always been to bring business value to our customers, and in WSO2 we have found a technology vendor that offers a balance of industry-leading software, openness, and a “customer-first” culture, unlike the familiar “revenue-first” vendors,” said Nick Parry, executive director at DeARX. “We’ve been delivering projects using WSO2 technology for more than five years, so building on our certified partner status to become a WSO2 VAR is a natural evolution and something we are both ready for and excited about.”
“At WSO2, we put a priority on teaming with companies who share our values, have the skills and experience to deliver solutions using our technology, and are committed to jointly growing our footprint by leveraging their regional focus and expertise. DeARX has demonstrated all of these qualities,” said Shevan Goonetilleke, COO of WSO2. “Now through our VAR partnership with DeARX, we are well-positioned to support our growing number of customers on the African continent in meeting their digital transformation goals.”
