The relationship will allow Integrata access to the extensive delivery capability and content of Global Knowledge and its vendor partners. In turn, Integrata will be the recommended customer engagement partner for Global Knowledge's customers in Germany. The combination of Integrata's excellent account management coverage with Global Knowledge's education content will provide an offering unique in the German market.
"We're extremely pleased to launch the strategic relationship with Global Knowledge", says Ingmar Rath, CEO Integrata. "This relationship enables us to accelerate our strategy of growing our IT portfolio and meeting the increasing demands from our customers for complete education solutions. Global Knowledge was the natural partner to work with as they give us access to some of the largest IT manufacturers, such as IBM and Cisco. We are equally pleased to be associated with the world wide industry leader in IT-, Business Skills- and Best Practice-training", Rath concludes.
"Germany is a key market for Global Knowledge and our vendor partners and I'm delighted that with today's announcement we can, through Integrata, provide similar solutions to those that we provide throughout the rest of the region that covers Europe, the Middle East and Africa" says Richard Pryor-Jones, President EMEA for Global Knowledge.
