Timbergrove Solutions, an award-winning IBM technology business partner specializing in IBM WebSphere, Maximo and Smarter Cloud software solutions, was recently selected by Houston-based ExtremeTix as strategic partner to help oversee the planning and implementation of improvements to its ticketing software platform. The ultimate goal is to increase the scalability and maintainability of the platform for an overall improved user experience.
ExtremeTix is a software company that offers its clients – including the Shell Houston Open and Wings Over Houston – the means to sell and manage event tickets. Tony DiCamillo, ExtremeTix SVP and General Manager, first approached Timbergrove in need of a comprehensive platform performance assessment. His objective was to enhance and expand the existing infrastructure and virtualize its current environment into the cloud for increased scalability and security.
“Working with Timbergrove Solutions has been mutually beneficial for Timbergrove and for ExtremeTix,” said DiCamillo. “Having a vendor relationship that is advantageous to both parties results in a natural synergy that leads to project success. We view the Timbergrove team as an extension of our own, and our engagement has grown beyond the original scope to include two additional project initiatives.”
“We are pleased with the results of our partnership with ExtremeTix,” said Ian Uriarte, Timbergrove president and CEO. “An extension of ExtremeTix’s team of architects, analysts and engineers, Timbergrove has been able to create a scalable and mobile technology that positions ExtremeTix well for further platform expansions and organizational growth.” Customer reaction to the enhancements and cloud migration has been positive. “Feedback from our customers and employees has been enthusiastic,” said DiCamillo. “We look forward to future projects with the team at Timbergrove.”
