Sponsor Highlight: DNS a.s.

During the lead up to the Social Connections VI event in Prague in June, the team will be highlighting each of our valued sponsors in turn.  We are delighted to have their support  – without it we really couldn’t deliver this event and offer the completely no-fee attendance that we do.

We are excited to announce a new gold-level sponsor for Social Connections:  DNS a.s.

DNS a.s. logoDNS is a value-added distributor (VAD) of IT technologies based in Prague, Czech Republic. DNS works with more than 30 global vendors however the distribution of IBM software and hardware products makes a significant portion of company turnover. DNS helps local resellers to be more successful in their business operations by various business development activities by providing sales, marketing and technical support, consultancy and advisory.

DNS is a big fan of IBM Collaboration Solutions and social business. It is a long-time sponsor of Czech Lotus user group called SUTOL (www.sutol.cz) and organizes various events, such as the annual “Get Social” conference (www.getsocial.cz @getsocial_cz). Last year DNS launched – perhaps as the first VAD – its social extranet (betterway.dns.cz) which is built with IBM Connections.

Besides, the only IBM champion for collaboration solutions in the country, Jan Valdman (@jan_valdman), works at DNS. Leveraging his skills and expertise DNS is successful enough to enable new resellers for IBM connections, help them with their first projects. Jan also partially works with end customer where he is engaged in several adoption projects.

If you consider to learn more about IBM Connections or even become a reseller, solution provider or managed services provider of the IBM social business platform, then DNS is the best place to start.
