Flexera said has opened the doors to its new Data Platform Centre of Excellence offices in Belfast City Centre, Northern Ireland. The new Flax House facility will be focused on advancing Flexera's technology asset management solutions.
Using some of the most advanced technologies available, the Belfast site will manage platform development for Flexera's software and hardware asset data repository. Flexera's Data Platform powers the company's own products as well as enterprise architecture, project & portfolio management, IT financial management, procurement and IT service management solutions across the entire software supply chain.
Itasca-based Flexera re-imagines how software is bought, sold, managed and secured.
The Belfast office currently employs 30 people in many vital roles including: product management, engineering, support, marketing and content operations. There's an active recruitment drive in place with a laser focus on development, and forecasts to hire an additional 20 team members in 2018. Future plans also include adding a new support and services hub for the United Kingdom and Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
"The Belfast community's commitment to excellence was key to establishing this facility," said Walker White, Flexera's vice president of data platform.
Flexera has built a world-class reputation in technology asset data. The company's Technopedia solution categorizes and aligns technology asset data, allowing organizations to increase ROI from their software investments by reducing data silos, increasing collaboration and improving the decision-making process.
