Can the alliance offer services at lowest cost for SMB market?
Qualex Consulting Services has announced that it will offer SAS business intelligence services by partnering with nGenX, a provider of outsourced IT solutions.
Qualex said that it will also offer SAS software management services to its customers ranging from deployment and configuration, daily backups, software patches and upgrades, data migration services, and analytics.
By leveraging nGenX’s server configurations, Qualex will reportedly be able to offer fast deployment of SAS business intelligence (BI) products with various hardware configurations to meet each of its customer’s deployment needs. The main goal of this strategic alliance is to offer SAS BI services with the lowest total-cost-of-ownership for the small and medium business (SMB) market, added Qualex.
Qualex is also going to leverage the relationship with nGenX to offer SAS assessment services to help companies optimize hardware and SAS software licenses with the SAS 9 BI platform.
