South Harwich, MA (PRWEB) September 02, 2014
Celebrating the mid-point of 2014 with key customer wins, premier industry partnerships and market-first data management solutions, BackOffice Associates today unveiled its key milestones for the first half of 2014. Among its accomplishments, the information governance and data migration leader continued a strong growth trajectory and achieved a 31 percent increase in customer contracts globally. Additionally, BackOffice Associates expanded its existing relationship with SAP (NYSE: SAP) with a global reseller agreement to help enterprises accelerate information management projects. The company also previewed its innovative dspCloud solution, scheduled for general availability this fall.
Kicking off the year with the new global reseller agreement, SAP began reselling two BackOffice Associates solutions as the SAP® Data Services Migration Accelerator application by BackOffice Associates and the SAP Information Steward Accelerator applications by BackOffice Associates, custom edition and human capital management (HCM) edition. These solutions are already receiving strong marketplace traction as customers can achieve competitive advantage by accelerating their data migration projects and governance of HR data and other custom domains. BackOffice also announced an expanded partnership with SAP, through which it will offer consulting services in support of cloud solutions from SAP, including the SAP Business ByDesign® solution and HR cloud solutions from SuccessFactors, an SAP company.
“We’ve seen a true market shift in 2014 as more enterprises are embracing the power of their data and embarking on data quality, migration and governance initiatives to glean significant strategic and operational efficiencies,” said David Booth, president and CEO of BackOffice Associates. “Further extending BackOffice Associates’ global reach, joining forces with key industry partners and investing in our suite of premier data management solutions have positioned us for a strong second half of the year. We’re ramping up for dspCloud’s official release and look forward to hosting our inaugural BackOffice Data Summit in the fall.”
The dspCloud solution, which is currently in beta testing, is a content-rich web portal intended to accelerate time-to-value and improve visibility for data migration, data quality and information governance initiatives. The solution will provide data stewards and business users alike unprecedented access to data lifecycle guidance, actionable data quality and business process analytics as well as industry KPIs that can reduce project times by as much as 80 percent.
In addition to dspCloud, BackOffice also announced the release of DBMoto® version 8.2 by its HiT Software® division. The solution supports real-time data replication and changed-data updates to SAP IQ database software and Oracle® Database 12c, extending support to additional columnar and cloud systems.
Among its other achievements, BackOffice Associates announced the opening of five additional offices globally and was named to the DBTA 100 2014 - The Companies That Matter Most in Data. The company also promoted J. Matthew Rowles to CFO and welcomed new executives Jennifer Gertenbach, SPHR, previously with Inova Health System, as global vice president of human resources, and Cindy Zhou, previously with IBM, as global vice president of marketing.
