ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- GARTNER SYMPOSIUM/ITxpo -- iQuate today announced expansion into the US from Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2010.
iQuate – the Oracle licensing experts – will be establishing their first offices in the US in the coming months. The first office will open in a West Coast location in Q4 2010, followed by an East Coast office in Q1 2011.
This expansion has been fuelled by ten-fold rise in the number of large, US-based customers contacting iQuate to help them unravel the complexity of their Oracle licensing.
"Oracle licensing is very complex and this makes it difficult for large Oracle customers to keep on top of it," explains Pat Durkin, iQuate CEO. "At last month's Oracle OpenWorld we were inundated with enquiries from customers who feel they do not have real control over their Oracle licensing. Poor control significantly increases operational, financial, contractual and regulatory risk - in today's business environment it is vital that these risks are minimized."
"The US market is incredibly important to iQuate," adds Jason Keogh, iQuate founder and CTO, "as it contains most of the largest Oracle users in the world. iQSonar – our flagship product – has been engineered specifically to work across large complex Oracle networks and deliver the control these customers need."
iQuate are also actively recruiting US-based Oracle partners with established advisory, consultancy or technical practices focused on Oracle licensing.
