Jade Solutions announces new partnership agreement with Infovista

Jade Solutions is delighted to announce the signing of a collaborative partnership agreement with Infovista, leaders in modern network and application performance orchestration solutions.

This will enable Jade to offer next generation application performance and SD-WAN solutions to its mid-market and enterprise customers in the UK.

Jade Solutions is an integral part of the Econocom Group, a leading European provider of business-to-business digital services with revenues circa €3bn. Jade has extensive expertise across a wide range of industry sectors, and over 20 years’ experience in rolling out large multi-site projects in retail, manufacturing, transport and logistics. Customers of Jade Solutions include Travis Perkins, M&S, Clarks and NFT.

Mark Berry, Sales Director of Jade Solutions commented: “With our deep knowledge and focus on helping our customers with digital transformation, it makes sense to combine our strengths and talents with Infovista to take customers beyond basic SD-WAN products towards an application/user centric networking model and ultimately to an application aware WAN.”

Jade Solutions has already had joint success with Infovista on the implementation and project delivery of its Ipanema solution at one of Jade’s large food retail customers.  Following a rapid phase 1 implementation phase, the Ipanema solution has already helped the customer protect its payment traffic, as the customer was experiencing poor performance across its 1000+ stores. In addition, it has also allowed the customer to open up and share its infrastructure with its patrons to enable value added services, enable faster rollouts of new IT initiatives, improve sales conversions by over 40%, and achieve revenue increases of tens of thousands per day, per store.

Berry continued: “Working alongside Infovista we will continue to bring next generation network solutions to the market that will enable our customers to accelerate their digital transformation initiatives whilst dramatically simplifying IT operations.

Neil Dunham, VP for the UK and Ireland at Infovista said: “As geographically distributed enterprises seek to accelerate their digital transformation initiatives, they are quickly coming to the realisation that their existing WAN is not optimised to support their business-critical applications, their migration to the cloud or to protect user experience as they implement different connectivity technologies to drive down operational costs. Infovista enables them to build the agility required to compete effectively in the connected world and to realise those improvements, enterprises need to work with dynamic and progressive partners.

“With Jade Solutions’ expertise and proven delivery track record for large multi-site enterprises, together we provide customers with the flexibility to move beyond router-centric WAN architectures to a centrally managed application aligned environment, enabling businesses to evolve efficiently and give them competitive advantage. Our partnership with Jade Solutions will accelerate the support of Enterprise customers, enhance their application intelligence and transform their business performance and user experience.”
