Northern is Strengthening its User Data Management Offering in Japan

Stockholm, Sweden – July 29, 2015: NORTHERN, the founder and market leader of User Data Management (UDM) – helping organizations gain insight into and control over user-generated data, today announces new partnerships with Fuji Electric IT Solutions and Software ONE Japan to better serve the Japanese market.

Japanese customers have been using Northern’s software solution for nearly two decades as a tactical tool, but over the last year Northern has reshaped its go-to-market strategy in order to provide these customers with a more strategic solution for tackling user-generated data. Working together with its long-time customers in Japan, Northern has invested heavily in training new sales partners in Japan and created a Japanese-speaking support center at the company’s headquarters and development center in Stockholm, Sweden.

Commercial partners Fuji Electric IT Solutions and Software One Japan will provide a local Japanese counterpart to simplify both license and maintenance & support transactions for the large and growing number of Northern customers in Japan.

“Northern has been serving Japanese customers since 1996 and we are committed to constantly improving the value our customers are getting and to provide the best quality service. Our partnerships with Fuji Electric IT Solutions and Software One Japan makes it even more straightforward for our Japanese customers to do business with Northern”, says Jonas Areskoug, CEO of Northern. “Software One Japan is completely focused on providing software licensing services to Japanese customers. Fuji Electric IT Solutions does this as well, but also acts as system integrator. The combination of these two organizations will provide our Japanese customers very useful alternatives, accommodating the differences in our customers’ needs and preferences.”

With the growth rates of unstructured data continuing to accelerate, Northern’s approach to User Data Management (UDM) is user and data focused – enabling organizations to control data growth, align the value of data with the cost of storage, and extend the life of storage infrastructure. Working closely with the customer in an iterative goal-driven process, Northern Storage Suite can deliver the insight and control needed not only to the IT department but out to all of the data owners in the line-of-business.
