VIENNA, Austria – 14 Jan 2013: panagenda, leading solution provider for IBM Notes and Domino environments, announced the acquisition of Netherlands based IBM partner Trust Factory today.

Both companies have earned a solid reputation over the years in the areas of client-side, server-side and application management, analysis and optimization, with panagenda’s flagship MarvelClient desktop management solution and Trust Factory with their DNA analytics service.

This strategic acquisition enables panagenda to address the IBM Domino market with a complete suite of high-value solutions and services to revitalize customer environments, maximize the end-user experience and help clients develop an innovative roadmap along with the IBM social collaboration portfolio.

“We are extremely proud and excited that Trust Factory have joined forces with panagenda. Expanding our solution portfolio to integrate Trust Factory’s DNA analytics service marks an important step in our innovation strategy”, says Florian Vogler, CEO of panagenda. “We are just days away from officially launching an exciting new product based on the DNA technology, at IBM Connect2013 in Orlando, January 27 – 31.”

With the Trust Factory acquisition, panagenda plans to become the largest and most innovative force in optimizing management, operations and the user-experience of IBM customers around the globe. The two companies’ combined expertise, research and development capabilities will immediately benefit IBM customers interested in their IT management and optimization strategy.

“2012 was an exciting and successful year for us”, says Wouter Aukema, founder of Trust Factory. “IBM’s investment into DNA and this acquisition marks a new period where we will be integrating over 10 years of DNA knowledge and technology into panagenda’s solution portfolio. Customers have long been asking for an in-house product version of DNA. With panagenda we can make this happen.”

Trust Factory operationally remains a separate entity and will continue to provide its independent DNA consulting services to direct customers, Business Partners and IBM as usual.
