Compaq?s Enterprise Solutions Group is working with a raft of applications vendors and ISVs, ?to bridge a gap in the market... and minimise risk,? according to James Stevenson, director of Compaq?s Enterprise Computing Group.
It is drawing on its acquired Digital and Tandem systems integration expertise to focus on implementing hardware and applications software ranging from SAP to Sage, ?more quickly, simply and with less risk,? says Stevenson.
The Compaq Solutions Alliance programme provides access to Digital and Tandem technical assistance in developing and porting their applications onto Compaq systems. Additionally, The Solution Partner Programme, launched last Autumn, provides ISVs with assistance in training and systems sizing. ?The resellers must be Compaq accredited and certified by the software application vendor,? said Stevenson. He added: ?When we announced the SPP programme last Autumn, we signed up around 400 partners. We have over 720 today.?
Stevenson highlighted Compaq?s ActiveAnswers online knowledge database, developed in collaboration with ISV partners like SAP, Baan and Microsoft. The online database aims to simplify hardware and software configuration and implementation issues, and since its launch in the US last year, over 5,000 users have signed up.
Registration and use is free at www.Compaq.com/ActiveAnswers, and Stevenson recommends strongly that customers access the site and judge the value of information and advice for themselves.
