New Generation Software Partnership

ST. LOUIS – July 6, 2021

Connectria and New Generation Software (NGS) announce a mutually beneficial partnership supporting IBM i users. As a recognized leader in IBM Power Systems hosting and cloud services, Connectria’s services and support will bring incredible value to this partnership with NGS, providing enhanced software solution for both companies existing IBM i customers and prospects.

Based in Sacramento, California, NGS has provided technical expertise to the IBM i community since its founding in 1982. NGS has maintained an excellent relationship with IBM since the company’s inception. NGS is an IBM Business Partner and active supporter of the COMMON User Group and other user groups across North America. In addition to IBM, NGS has fostered strong business relationships with numerous independent software vendors and IBM solution providers.

NGS is an independent provider of query, reporting, and analytics software that helps IBM i customers operate more effectively, efficiently, and intelligently. The company’s NGS-IQTM solution is used every day by thousands of people in companies of all sizes and in every industry to simplify and automate operational query, reporting, and analytics tasks. NGS-IQ’s integrated design leverages the strengths of IBM i to enable companies to affordably modernize and enhance access to operational data without programming.

“IBM i is a critical element of our customers’ information technology environment, but their in-house staff usually needs to wear many hats to support company and industry-specific initiatives. Connectria’s combination of managed services and infrastructure hosting resources can help a company’s IT staff meet their goals while keeping pace with IBM Power Systems and IBM i capabilities.” William T Langston, Director of Marketing, New Generation Software, Inc.

Like Connectria, NGS can anticipate IBM users’ needs in relation to analytics, efficiency, operations, and reporting.
