Opalis Builds Partnership

HANNOVER, Germany -- Opalis Software, Inc., the Run Book Automation (RBA) software market leader that orchestrates, integrates, and automates IT operational processes, today announced a strengthened partnership with Germany-based Value Added Software GmbH (VASoft), a leading software consulting firm specializing in the sale of cutting-edge technologies. VASofts distribution network extends from Western to Eastern Europe and down through the Baltic region and will help to expand Opalis’ overall presence in Europe. Opalis recently recognized VASoft with its coveted President’s Club Award, an award given to the top 10 percent of Opalis’ worldwide partners.

“Opalis experienced record growth in 2006, with our customer base increasing to more than 800 companies worldwide and revenues rising by nearly triple digits,” said Mike Coombs, Channels Manager, for Opalis. “We intend to keep this momentum going strong throughout 2007. By partnering with a top notch and highly respected consulting firm like VASoft, we are well-positioned to continue to propel forward.”

VASoft has a clear focus on sales of system software, consulting, and training in the area of IT system environments and specializes in systems and security management. Providing support for partners such as Opalis, VASoft is in a position to offer expertise throughout all stages of product placement – from trial to final deployment to hotline services 24/7. Through the partnership, VASoft recently secured a high profile deal with a leading insurer based in Germany who provides insurance needs to some of the world’s largest banking institutions, among others. The company will use Opalis’ RBA software to automate several routine data center tasks involving automation silos, such as NetIQ AppManager, HP Service Desk, VMWare Virtual Center, FTP, Microsoft Active Directory, and others, and rely on VASoft’s around the clock support.

“We continue to be extremely impressed with Opalis’ unique and mature technology for automating RBA processes. Our clients find tremendous value from this technology which enables customers to both reduce costs and improve service delivery,” said Henning Wolter, General Manager for VASoft.
