ExtraHop eyes Queensland and WA growth on back of Ikara signing

18 May 17

Real-time IT analytics vendor Extrahop has inked a reseller deal with Ikara Group as it seeks to further its reach across Queensland and Western Australia.

Ikara Group, which has offices in Brisbane, Sydney and Singapore, will join what Kem Pehlivan, Extrahop ANZ lead, says is a ‘fast growing’ list of Australian partners for the vendor, which provides real-time stream analytics for IT operations and business intelligence.

Reuben Bennett, Ikara Group managing partner, says demand for IT analytics is growing as systems integrators and customers seek solutions that deliver better control of existing infrastructure, help them accelerate next-generation initiatives like cloud adoption and improve digital experience.

“The differentiated approach ExtraHop brings to the table allows us to offer Ikara customers the accurate and timely insight they need to accelerate key initiatives and improve performance and security posture,” Bennett says.

Adds Pehlivan: “Ikara has expertise working with organisations to optimise end-user experience by building customised solutions that manage the performance of critical applications and infrastructure and ensure SLA compliance.

“With the addition of ExtraHop to the Ikara portfolio, customers now benefit from an analytics-first approach that delivers real-time visibility into the performance, availability and security of every IT system, from the data centre to the cloud to the edge,” he adds.

The data analytics vendor set up an office in Melbourne last year to service the Australian and New Zealand markets, as part of an increased push into APAC.
