Frisco, Texas, July 10, 2013. Business Intelligence (BI) consulting, services and solutions provider, iOLAP Inc., has signed a reseller agreement with global data integration software vendor, Syncsort, Inc.

The agreement will see the Texas-headquartered consultancy make Syncsort’s data integration and other Hadoop enabling technologies, and their associated training and implementation services, available to its large and rapidly-growing customer base throughout the United States.

iOLAP CEO and Co-Founder, Doug Slemmer, said that making the decision to partner with Syncsort is important because of Syncsort’s long-term history of providing robust, enterprise-strength data integration services.

“With the explosion of Big Data projects, and even traditional data warehouses that are seeing exponential data growth, our customers need solutions that can handle the scale of ETL and other data integration processes. Our customers need to strategically manage this data growth and make better, faster, more insightful decisions in increasingly complex business situations,” said Slemmer. “Syncsort has powerful Hadoop and ETL capabilities unequaled by vendors who are wanting to get the speed and performance that Syncsort has already achieved.”

Speaking about the partnership, Michael Mistler, Syncsort’s Americas SI Partner Director, said that iOLAP’s well-regarded reputation as a dedicated provider of Big Data and Data Warehousing solutions, would enhance Syncsort’s reach in this market.

“Unlike other general-purpose IT firms, iOLAP has specialized in delivering Business Intelligence and Enterprise Data Warehousing (EDW) solutions for the past 14 years – so they do it exceptionally well,” said Mistler. “We’re confident that iOLAP’s deep understanding of data integration issues surrounding BI, EDW and Big Data marketplace will assist Syncsort to meet growing demand for cost-effective, consumer-oriented BI.”
