ID Grup and ASNA have signed an agreement for ID Grup to market the solutions and services of ASNA and for ASNA to market the ID Group cloud solutions.
The agreement between the two companies was signed at the offices of ASNA in Sant Cugat del Vallés by the ID Grup CEO Jordi Martínez Mestre and the ASNA CEO Carlos Valero Toda. Through this agreement, ASNA will now provide IBM i platform cloud services to its customers along with Windows and Linux platforms and managed services from those platforms.
In this way, ASNA customers with outdated IBM i platforms will have a new opportunity to upgrade with pay-as-you go formulas instead of needing large lump-sum investments up-front. In addition, they will be able to have Windows and Linux equipment, along with managed services of those platforms in a fast and agile way.
For its part, ID Grup will market the modernization and migration products of IBM i environments to its customers, as well as consulting services provided by ASNA, and expand its customer base of the new IBM i service in pay-per-use mode.
A leading company in the information technologies sector, ID Grup specializes in IT solutions and services. The scope of its activity includes the provision of local and remote services and on premise and cloud environments. ID Grup is the only European company, aside from IMB, that offers cloud services on the IBM i platform (old AS/400) as well as managed services in a quick and agile way. It has more than 300 technical and quality certifications that ensure the quality of its team.
ID Grup's managed services offer companies who are considering outsourcing the ability to manage some or all of their ICT infrastructure, a focus on the main business tasks, an increase in the quality of ICT infrastructure services, the reduction of costs of development and of the risks of managing a technological infrastructure in constant evolution.

Clients are enabled to save costs and increase efficiency because ID Grup uses the latest technology, computer programs, and devices, in a safe way which fulfills current regulations and best practices.
