Global software giant ASG expands into Scotland

6 August 2008

Enterprise software firm ASG Software Solutions, has announced an expansion to its international presence with the opening of a new office in Edinburgh.

ASG is one of the largest privately owned software companies in the world, with a turnover of around $300m in 2007. It already has more than 90 offices around the world, and the new Edinburgh office is located at 10 Lochside Place, Edinburgh Park, Edinburgh, EH12 9RG.

ASG operates in the Business Service Management (BSM) space, which provides firms with a strategy and an approach for linking IT to the specific goals of their business. It also enables them to understand and predict how technology impacts the business and how business impacts the IT infrastructure. BSM is one of the fastest growing sectors in technology.

ASG EMEA Marketing Director, Tulin Pledger, says, “ASG's decision to further develop its presence in the Scottish market represents an important step in the company's mission to increase market share. The opening of the Edinburgh office follows just a few weeks after a new office was opened in Dublin.”

Edinburgh is the sixth largest financial services centre in Europe, and is home to many large financial firms including The Royal Bank of Scotland, HBOS (owners of the Bank of Scotland), and Standard Life Insurance.

“Considering Scotland’s track record in the world of finance, ASG is well positioned to further develop relationships in this market sector. We already have at least 60 percent of the world’s largest banks as customers,” says Pledger. “Back in the 1980s when we saw an economic boom in the Silicon Glen corridor between Glasgow and Edinburgh, many large technology firms relocated to Scotland., Today we already have a great head start with a solid Scottish customer base. Our new office solidifies our presence here.”

Headquartered in Naples, Florida, USA, ASG is best known for its MetaCMDB, a federated configuration management database (CMDB) that is also the differentiating core of ASG's enterprise Business Service Management (BSM) solution, ASG's Business Service Platform (BSP). The superior data management capabilities of ASG's BSP, accomplished through relationship mapping and metadata technologies, is perfectly suited to handle the complexity of modern enterprises and the turbulence of rapidly changing business environments.

ASG has appointed Dominic Colella to run the Scottish office. “I am delighted to join the ASG team during an exciting growth period,” says Colella. “My aim is to work closely with our existing clients and promote ASG’s outstanding software solutions to the wider business and public sector community in Scotland. We created good momentum when our CEO came to visit, and we expect that to continue as we strengthen our presence in this region.”
