Montage Staffs Up For Growing Trend In Application Integration

An Increasing demand for making business processes more efficient by getting disparate information technology systems working together has lead Montage Interactive to recruit two top IT experts. Aaron Kitto and Dagmar Lindner have joined the company to provide expertise in application integration and business process automation.

"There is widespread experience among corporates of cost inefficiency and lost opportunities due to business systems that simply 'cannot talk to each other' or are far too expensive to modify in this regard," says Mike Perry, CEO of Montage. "Enterprises have mostly completed the roll out of core business applications such as ERP and CRM. Now the challenge is to make these and legacy systems work together in order to gain competitive advantage and shake out costs."

Montage Interactive offers solutions that make IT systems work together and deliver a high quality 'user experience' of business applications and information delivery. This unique combination of integration, collaboration and usability solutions has driven business growth for the company locally and internationally. As a result Montage has added two key appointments to its business solutions team.

Aaron Kitto brings world-class system integration expertise. As a Microsoft BizTalk specialist, he has delivered innovative solutions for the manufacturing, agricultural and contracting industries as well as local government. Formerly at Gen-i, he implemented the first production Microsoft BizTalk 2004 system in the Southern hemisphere and reached the New Zealand Computer Award finals in 2002 for his work with Swiss cement giant Holcim.

Dagmar Lindner brings business analysis and web usability expertise gained from several years advising European Top 500 corporations on effective use of the web. Previously programme manager for Tele2 Internet, Dagmar holds an MBA from Vienna University, Austria and has studied at the Stern School of Business in New York.

Mike is delighted to have Aaron and Dagmar on board. He says, "The experience that they bring to Montage will add enormous value for our customers. Their recruitment reinforces our focus on improving business process efficiency for our enterprise customers, and provides the flexibility, cost savings and room for growth that our customers need."
