"Collaborating on Open Source Innovation"

SoftwareOne, a global provider of software and cloud solutions, and Proxy, a Premier Business Partner of Red Hat in Datacenter and Cloud Infrastructure, announce a strategic collaboration in the Benelux region. Proxy's knowledge and experience in implementation and management align well with SoftwareOne's offering of Red Hat solutions.

Implementing and managing open source

"We distinguish 5 phases with our clients," says Bram Spoelstra, Associate Solution Advisor Red Hat at SoftwareOne. "We can flawlessly handle the first 3 phases in the process (identifying opportunities, designing the solution, and delivering licenses). However, we want to offer the customer a complete package, including the implementation and management of the open-source solution. To do this well, you need specialized knowledge, which Proxy has. That's where Proxy's strength lies, and they complement our offering perfectly."

Experienced knowledge partner

"We didn't rush into the collaboration with Proxy," illustrates Bastiaan Schueler, Teamleader Enterprise at SoftwareOne. "If you want to continue innovating, open source is the solution. So, we were looking for a party that has already proven itself and is ready for the future, too. Red Hat advised us to talk to Mark Zwenger from Proxy in Rotterdam. Proxy is highly regarded in the world of open source, and we were already familiar with this organization from past discussions. We have already informed the first clients, and the reactions to a knowledge partner like Proxy are purely positive."

Ambition and growth strategy

The Proxy team is also very enthusiastic about the collaboration with SoftwareOne. "SoftwareOne is the perfect addition to our Open Source, Enterprise IT portfolio and fits perfectly with our ambitions and growth strategy," adds Mark Zwenger, Product Manager at Proxy. "The collaboration brings together 2 worlds, and customers can be sure that they can get the most out of their technical innovation!"
