Datawatch signs TTS

Search and retrieval software vendor Datawatch has signed Total Technologies and Solutions (TTS) as its second distributor for the Middle East.

Search and retrieval software vendor Datawatch has signed Total Technologies and Solutions (TTS) as its second distributor for the Middle East.

Datawatch’s Monarch software for data mining, data pump tool for data transformation and web based Helpdesk software will be sold as part of TTS’ best-of-breed ERP solution, targeted at enterprise accounts in the banking, oil, government, and telecom sectors across the Middle East.

“The Datawatch software sits just below the enterprise software products we offer and is a good entry point to approach banks with, particularly the Helpdesk solution. It offers more depth to our full IPO flotation management solution,” said Cecil Owens, Chairman and President at Total Technologies and Solutions.

Both TTS and Datawatch say banks need to invest and upgrade or renew their enterprise management systems to bring them into line with Basel Capitol Accord II compliance regulations that come into place next year. Owens claims that his IPO software can cut the processing time of initial public offering (IPO) administration clean up procedures from between six and eight weeks to 48 hours. Owen’s cites Datawatch’s QSM Helpdesk product is a big reason for the speedy time to results with its on-line access to users to solve data entry problems.

TTS is currently negotiating to sell a Datawatch solution to a large UAE bank. It is also in talks with an existing Datawatch customer in Amman, about an upgrade. TTS is also keen to make inroads to Saudi Arabia with Datawatch and is expecting to close a deal with an oil company in the Kingdom for Monarch software.

TTS will be promoting Datawatch products across the GCC and will co-ordinate with the software vendor to promote its products: “We will have a roadshow across the GCC and do seminars in each country. The product hasn’t been promoted over here because there hasn’t been a proper distribution setup before,” said Owens.

Although it has only been set up for one year, TTS has very experienced staff, and Owens has been working with enterprise IT accounts in the Middle East for the last ten years and is a former director of systems integration giant Atos Origin. TTS also works with vendors Ariba, Web Methods, Conexus and Contivo.

“We have been consistently winning and implementing multi million dollar projects. Bidding with the web Methods Integration Platform we have never lost out on an RFP contract to IBM, HP, Tibco or to any of the other large integration players,” concluded Owens.
