In conjunction with the release of version 3.6 of Express Meter (see ARN February 18, page 8), Megatec is set to launch the Express Experts program for resellers. WRQ Software's Paul Davis told ARN that many of the greatest problems confronting IT users at the moment -- from budgeting to licensing and even year 2000 issues -- could be better handled with effective software management tools.
He said corporate customers want better informed IT business decisions, but lack the time or resources to implement programs.
The solution, according to Davis, is WRQ's Express Meter software, distributed in Australia by Megatec. Davis cited figures from Dataquest and Gartner Group which indicated that the cost of outsourcing management of desktops and networks will rise from $US2.73 billion in 1995 to $US10.65 billion in 2000.
To help its business partners take advantage of that growth, WRQ and Megatec are implementing the Express Experts program, designed to help end users and business partners work together to get the most out of software management programs.
Services provided by Express Experts include auditing, optimisation of deployment, and customisation, including integration with customers' business processes.
