EnterpriseDB (EDB), the leading worldwide provider of enterprise-class Postgres products and database compatibility solutions, today announced is has appointed experienced IT executive Sascha Scholing to expand the company’s activities in Germany, Eastern Europe and Turkey.
By expanding its European sales team, EDB plans to further grow its business in these key core markets. Sascha Scholing will be Sales Director for Central and Eastern Europe and work directly with the vice president of international sales. Scholing brings to EDB more than 22 years of enterprise software industry experience. In addition to his direct sales responsibilities aimed at expanding the EDB customer base in the DACH region, Scholing will also expand the strategic EDB partner network. As in other regions where EDB has an active partner network, partners in DACH will provide EDB’s services and local support but also develop and deliver integrated solutions.
“DAX-listed companies can spend 35 percent of their IT budgets for databases. Providing the same level of mission-critical performance and stability as traditional solutions, EDB’s Postgres Plus can cut database costs by 80 percent or more,” said Scholing. “EDB is the world’s largest provider of software and services for Postgres, the world’s more advanced open source relational database. As more and more companies embrace open source and Postgres for their data center, EDB is expanding to support them.”
“The DACH region is an important one for EDB as adoption of Postgres expands and with his experience, Sascha is the kind of market expert we need to work with enterprises,” said Sandor Klein, Vide President of International Sales at EnterpriseDB. “He will help us raise our brand recognition but also identify the right partners that will benefit end users and support the open source model."
Scholing brings 22 years of experience in the IT industry to his new position at EDB. Before joining the company, he held an assortment of management roles for renowned industry giants like Siemens Nixdorf, Siebel, Oracle, Infor, Salesforce, Compuware and Tibco. In his last position at Tibco, he was responsible for the Spotfire range for the DACH region and Eastern Europe. During his tenure at Tibco, he was able to gain valuable experience for his new role at EDB since the Spotfire analytic tool is based on both standard SQL databases as well as standalone NoSQL-only solutions.
EnterpriseDB works with 80 partners worldwide. The network comprises channel partners, distributors, Value Added Resellers as well as system integrators that use EDB’s database to develop solutions.
