Transition Systems Group Launches Agile Distribution In South East Asia

Agile To Bring F5 Networks’ Flexible, Cost-Effective Software Defined Application Services To South East Asia’s Growth Markets

February 20, 2014. Singapore – Transition Systems, a leading value added distributor of innovative networking products and services in South East Asia, today announced a new level of commitment for its partnership with F5 Networks through the launch of Agile Distribution to deliver F5’s market leading Application Delivery Networking (ADN) solution to customers in South East Asia.

Headquartered in Singapore, Agile Distribution aims to bring better value and provide more focused resources, support, and enablement services to both its channel partners and their customers.  Agile Distribution Thailand and Singapore will be spearheaded by the General Managers, Ms. Wanrattika Ditcharoen and Ms. Tricia Yeo respectively.

With networks lying at the heart of many businesses, enabling them to adapt to a dynamic market, exploit new and fleeting opportunities and improve operational efficiency becomes more crucial for success than ever. In the name of better efficiency and cost savings, many are adopting cloud-driven application delivery models to be more agile.

“For the past years we have already seen great success from our partnership with F5 Networks. We have now formed Agile Distribution to further expand this relationship with a dedicated team to prepare for the next phase of growth. Setting up Agile Distribution shows our commitment as we will have a team fully focused on supporting the growth of the F5 Networks business in the region by providing value added services to our Channel Partners and their customers,” says Mr. Jonathan Juay, Group Managing Director, Transition Systems Group.

According to an industry survey, the majority of applications are accessed via the Web. Mobiles have introduced a shift in the devices we use to access these applications. According to Gartner, 2.7 billion mobile devices will be shipped in 2017 and 40 percent of the workforce will be mobile. Meanwhile, Clouds are changing the way applications are developed and deployed.

Therefore, a big challenge for many companies and governments alike is to facilitate the transition of their heritage IT setup from a network to an application centric architecture to ensure secure business operations, reduction of upfront costs, simplified deployment as well as management and maintenance.

Agile Distribution was set up to address this trend in delivering F5’s ADN solutions to businesses across South East Asia. Starting in Singapore and Thailand, Agile will shortly also start operations in Indonesia and the Philippines.

With F5’s recently launched New Synthesis Architectural Vision, Agile Distribution will be able to offer featured elements that have been specifically designed to resonate within F5’s partner ecosystem and help customers build a high performance fabric to deploy application services.

 “Agile’s partnership with F5 Networks comes at a timely juncture with the launch of Synthesis Architectural Vision.  Synthesis changes the way we communicate and will also change the way we sell our solutions. The need to evolve is vital with the growing change in demographics influences on purchasing behaviors. We need to remain agile and flexible in order to meet tomorrow’s challenges,” says Teong Eng Guan, Regional Vice President, ASEAN and Korea, F5 Networks.

Agile Distribution plans to offer F5’s complete range of market leading business and technology solutions to help organizations seamlessly scale cloud, data center, and software defined networking (SDN) deployments to successfully deliver applications to anyone, anywhere, at any time.
