Bocada Partners With Promark Technology for Expanded Distribution Through GSA Schedule
PR Newswire — January 10, 2011
KIRKLAND, Wash., Jan. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Bocada Inc., the world’s leading provider of data protection management software and the creator of the Data Protection Service Management (DPSM) model, today announced that it has extended its distribution agreement with Promark Technology, Inc., one of the premier value-added distributors in the United States, for sales in government markets through Promark’s General Services Administration (GSA) schedule.
By partnering with Promark, Bocada Prism will be available to customers in the public sector through the GSA schedule procurement process. Promark channel partners can leverage the contract to sell products to government customers even if they do not hold a GSA contract of their own. This agreement opens up additional markets for the company while also providing Bocada Channel Partners with the opportunity to fulfill government orders they may not otherwise have qualified to provide.
“For more than 20 years, we’ve offered proven solutions to the public sector in many data storage arenas, including backup and data protection, and we feel that a solution like Bocada’s that provides organizations the opportunity to meet business goals and improve operational efficiencies is an ideal addition to the GSA schedule,” said Dale Foster, President of Promark. “Because information is so mission-critical for public sector organizations, it is important that they have a cost-effective way to protect data availability and ensure they are meeting compliance regulations. Bocada Prism is just such a solution that our resellers’ customers require.”
“Bocada Prism addresses critical business needs including risk reduction, ensuring compliance and lowering overall operational costs. Companies in the public sector in particular need a solution that to help meet those operational goals,” said Nancy Hurley, CEO of Bocada. “Bocada Prism is very complementary to the storage solutions already offered through Promark. This partnership with Promark expands our distribution channel and provides our resellers with the opportunity to implement backup and recovery operations at customer installations that are required to secure their IT services through the GSA.”
Much more than a backup reporting solution, Bocada Prism is a service management application that was purpose built to help organizations move through the DPSM model, a multi-phase set of best practices to ensure cost-effective delivery of data protection services to customers. Bocada leveraged years of customer experiences to create a workflow-driven, intelligent analysis solution with built in SLA impact analysis, change tracking, trend analysis and a searchable knowledge base to ensure organizations can meet business goals and improve operational efficiencies. Bocada Prism is available through the Bocada Vendor Store on the Promark website at http://www.promarktech.com/bocada_vendor_store.asp
