Professional Service Integrators (PSI), an independent company of the ACA Pacific group, is now the sole Australian distributor for database vendor Objectivity.
PSI will be distributing Objectivity's line of object-oriented database products on behalf of ACA Pacific, which scored the exclusive distributorship.
According to a spokesman for Objectivity, ACA Pacific was chosen primarily for the marketing strength and technical expertise offered by PSI.
PSI was formed 18 months ago when ACA took its technical resources and formed a separate entity. PSI provides technical support to ACA's dealers and their customers, and additionally offers integration services directly.general manager, John Ball, said PSI provides a help desk service for all products that ACA sells, while another arm of the company services the networking arena. Given the company's technical background, he believes PSI is particularly suited to support the Objectivity products.
"Objectivity, being an object-oriented database, is primarily aimed at applications that require very complex relationships between pieces of data," said Ball.
"It's particularly applicable in industries like power switching and telecommunications, where in the past managing a complex network has been very difficult when using relational databases," he said.
Objectivity products are licensed in several ways - evaluation licences in a "try before you buy" scheme; and development licences which can start from $12,000.
Actual product pricing varies dependent upon its application.
