TmaxSoft Expands in Southeast Asia to Address Enterprise Demand for Innovative, Agile Software Solutions



ECS Computers is appointed distributor in Singapore

Singapore, Mar 26, 2014 - (ACN Newswire) - TmaxSoft, a global provider of agile and robust system software solutions and Korean market leader in middleware, today announced its strategic expansion into Southeast Asia with a head office based in Singapore. The launch follows TmaxSoft's rapid growth internationally spanning established foreign branches in Japan, China and the US and in recent years, in Russia, UK and Brazil. TmaxSoft has specialised in Mainframe Rehosting, RDBMS, Big Data Solution and middleware since 1997. They have built a solid track record of success, helping regional customers to evolve their mainframe systems to less costly, more agile Open Systems while protecting their business logic investment built over the years.

TmaxSoft has appointed Singapore's leading ICT products and services provider, ECS Computers, as its authorised distributor for its entire portfolio, including middleware (JEUS), database management solution (Tibero RDBMS) and application performance monitoring solution (SysMaster).

ECS Computers is the wholly-owned subsidiary of ECS Holdings Limited, a Singapore Exchange (SGX) mainboard listed company recognised for its extensive reseller network across Asia Pacific.

"Southeast Asia is a hyper-growth market and we see the tremendous opportunity here. Customers are increasingly looking for more innovative software solutions that will help reduce the total cost of ownership, enhance the performance and provide complete stability of their IT systems. This can increase the supportability and agility of their IT operations. With a strong sales organisation and channel ecosystem in place, we look forward to our success and further expansion into territories, namely, India and Australia," said David Kim, Managing Director, TmaxSoft Singapore.

According to Gartner, the worldwide application infrastructure and middleware software market grew five percent to $20 billion last year. TmaxSoft recognises the demand for system software solutions due to trends in Big Data as a Service and Big Data Analytics going mainstream. This is evident in the Southeast Asia market which offers a vast number of mid-market companies ready to invest in streamlining their IT processes to improve operating efficiency.

"The partnership with TmaxSoft allows us to leverage on their wealth of expertise and superior leadership in system software solutions. This collaboration could further expand the product and service offerings that we have to our customers. We believe our partnership will be of a great success," said Mr Sebastian Chong, President, ECS Computers (Asia) Pte Ltd.

Hewlett-Packard (HP) is a strategic partner of TmaxSoft for its range of mainframe rehosting and middleware solutions.

"The IT industry in Southeast Asia is facing enormous challenges as organizations look to capitalize on the New Style of IT and achieve legacy modernisation," said Kong Hoe Chan, General Manager, Commercial Sales, APJ, HP. "As a key strategic partner, we congratulate TmaxSoft's expansion into the region and will look to strengthen our collaboration in offering greater value to organizations seeking to modernize their mainframes. This enables us to deliver proven solutions and expertise in helping customers across Southeast Asia reduce system costs and complexity while simultaneously increasing system agility and transparency."

TmaxSoft offers two options for companies considering mainframe modernization. One option is mainframe redevelopment, or redeveloping the IT system on a more cost-efficient and flexible 'open platform'. Another alternative is mainframe rehosting, or moving the applications, resources and data from the legacy system to an open platform.

Tmax Group has advanced into overseas markets in full force with technical skills accumulated from more than 3,000 references in Korea, Japan, China and the U.S. They have secured many customer wins and projects including Nomura, Posco, SK Telecom, KT, Bank of Korea, Hyundai, Kia Motors, Samsung Life Insurance and Daewoo Securities.

14th International Cloud Expo, held on June 10–12, 2014 at the Javits Center in New York City, featured three content-packed days with a rich array of sessions about the business and technical value of cloud computing, Internet of Things, Big Data, and DevOps led by exceptional speakers from every sector of the IT ecosystem. The Cloud Expo series is the fastest-growing Enterprise IT event in the past 10 years, devoted to every aspect of delivering massively scalable enterprise IT as a service.
Hardware will never be more valuable than on the day it hits your loading dock. Each day new servers are not deployed to production the business is losing money. While Moore’s Law is typically cited to explain the exponential density growth of chips, a critical consequence of this is rapid depreciation of servers. The hardware for clustered systems (e.g., Hadoop, OpenStack) tends to be significant capital expenses. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Mason Katz, CTO and co-founder of StackIQ, to discuss how infrastructure teams should be aware of the capitalization and depreciation model of these expenses to fully understand when and where automation is critical.
Over the last few years the healthcare ecosystem has revolved around innovations in Electronic Health Record (HER) based systems. This evolution has helped us achieve much desired interoperability. Now the focus is shifting to other equally important aspects – scalability and performance. While applying cloud computing environments to the EHR systems, a special consideration needs to be given to the cloud enablement of Veterans Health Information Systems and Technology Architecture (VistA), i.e., the largest single medical system in the United States.
In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Mark Hinkle, Senior Director, Open Source Solutions at Citrix Systems Inc., will provide overview of the open source software that can be used to deploy and manage a cloud computing environment. He will include information on storage, networking(e.g., OpenDaylight) and compute virtualization (Xen, KVM, LXC) and the orchestration(Apache CloudStack, OpenStack) of the three to build their own cloud services. Speaker Bio: Mark Hinkle is the Senior Director, Open Source Solutions, at Citrix Systems Inc.

Most of today’s hardware manufacturers are building servers with at least one SATA Port, but not every systems engineer utilizes them. This is considered a loss in the game of maximizing potential storage space in a fixed unit. The SATADOM Series was created by Innodisk as a high-performance, small form factor boot drive with low power consumption to be plugged into the unused SATA port on your server board as an alternative to hard drive or USB boot-up. Built for 1U systems, this powerful device is smaller than a one dollar coin, and frees up otherwise dead space on your motherboard. To meet the requirements of tomorrow’s cloud hardware, Innodisk invested internal R&D resources to develop our SATA III series of products. The SATA III SATADOM boasts 500/180MBs R/W Speeds respectively, or double R/W Speed of SATA II products.
As more applications and services move "to the cloud" (public or on-premise) cloud environments are increasingly adopting and building out traditional enterprise features. This in turn is enabling and encouraging cloud adoption from enterprise users. In many ways the definition is blurring as features like continuous operation, geo-distribution or on-demand capacity become the norm. NuoDB is involved in both building enterprise software and using enterprise cloud capabilities. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Seth Proctor, CTO at NuoDB, Inc., will discuss the experiences from building, deploying and using enterprise services and suggest some ways to approach moving enterprise applications into a cloud model.
Until recently, many organizations required specialized departments to perform mapping and geospatial analysis, and they used Esri on-premise solutions for that work. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Dave Peters, author of the Esri Press book Building a GIS, System Architecture Design Strategies for Managers, will discuss how Esri has successfully included the cloud as a fully integrated SaaS expansion of the ArcGIS mapping platform. Organizations that have incorporated Esri cloud-based applications and content within their business models are reaping huge benefits by directly leveraging cloud-based mapping and analysis capabilities within their existing enterprise investments. The ArcGIS mapping platform includes cloud-based content management and information resources to more widely, efficiently, and affordably deliver real-time actionable information and analysis capabilities to your organization.
Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mac Devine, Distinguished Engineer at IBM, will discuss bringing these three elements together via Systems of Discover.
Cloud and Big Data present unique dilemmas: embracing the benefits of these new technologies while maintaining the security of your organization’s assets. When an outside party owns, controls and manages your infrastructure and computational resources, how can you be assured that sensitive data remains private and secure? How do you best protect data in mixed use cloud and big data infrastructure sets? Can you still satisfy the full range of reporting, compliance and regulatory requirements? In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Derek Tumulak, Vice President of Product Management at Vormetric, will discuss how to address data security in cloud and Big Data environments so that your organization isn’t next week’s data breach headline.
The cloud is everywhere and growing, and with it SaaS has become an accepted means for software delivery. SaaS is more than just a technology, it is a thriving business model estimated to be worth around $53 billion dollars by 2015, according to IDC. The question is – how do you build and scale a profitable SaaS business model? In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Jason Cumberland, Vice President, SaaS Solutions at Dimension Data, will give the audience an understanding of common mistakes businesses make when transitioning to SaaS; how to avoid them; and how to build a profitable and scalable SaaS business.

Enterprises require the performance, agility and on-demand access of the public cloud, and the management, security and compatibility of the private cloud. The solution? In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Simone Brunozzi, VP and Chief Technologist(global role) for VMware, will explore how to unlock the power of the hybrid cloud and the steps to get there. He'll discuss the challenges that conventional approaches to both public and private cloud computing, and outline the tough decisions that must be made to accelerate the journey to the hybrid cloud. As part of the transition, an Infrastructure-as-a-Service model will enable enterprise IT to build services beyond their data center while owning what gets moved, when to move it, and for how long. IT can then move forward on what matters most to the organization that it supports – availability, agility and efficiency.
Every healthy ecosystem is diverse. This is especially true in cloud ecosystems, where portability and interoperability are more important than old enterprise models of proprietary ownership. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Mark Baker, Server Product Manager at Canonical/Ubuntu, will discuss how single vendors used to take the lead in creating and delivering technology, but in a cloud economy, where users want tools of their preference, when and where they need them, it makes no sense.
