<p>A growing demand for high quality business solutions has led IBM Advanced Business Partner Cirrus Australia to significantly enlarge its Sydney office. The expansion comes as a result of the employment of all but one staff member from Cri-Tech, a New South Wales based IBM Business Partner specialising in the IBM Lotus platform.</p>
<p>In one of the worst business environments since the depression, Cirrus Australia doubled its revenue and experienced significant growth over the 2008 – 2009 year.</p>
<p>“It’s been our best year on record. While the current economic climate has seen IT budgets slashed, companies have still needed IT solutions that deliver business value,” said Darren Phillips, CEO, Cirrus Australia .</p>
<p>Phillips believes business conditions are beginning to improve.</p>
<p>“We are starting to see that customers are putting some of their projects back on track. There’s particular demand in New South Wales . Our recent expansion places us in an excellent position to supply high value, high quality solutions. I expect that we will double our business again in the 2010 year to $7 million. This will place Cirrus Australia in the top three Australian IBM software business partners in terms of revenue, ” said Phillips.</p>
<p>“Furthermore, this expansion builds upon Cirrus Australia ’s skill base across all five IBM software brands by adding key capabilities in IBM Lotus along with customers such as Kellogs, Electrolux, Mitsubishi Development, Alcatel and Reuters Australia.”</p>
<p>Tony Giles, Managing Director of Cri-Tech, will assume the role of Solutions Architect with Cirrus Australia . He said a key reason behind his team’s decision to join Cirrus Australia was the significant changes made to IBM’s business partner licencing model.</p>
<p>“These changes mean that Cirrus Australia is effectively one of only a few companies in Australia able to deliver the entire IBM software stack,” said Giles.</p>
<p>Giles believes there’s a strong demand among New South Wales businesses for solutions that reduce IT costs while increasing IT deliverables.</p>
<p>“Our combined resources amplify our capabilities significantly. Cri-Tech’s customers will have the same contacts and the same way of doing business as they did before, but will now have access to one of the most comprehensive IBM software skill bases in the country. We’re now in a strong position to assist customers taking advantage of the recovery in the market.”</p>

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
