Extra Technology history

Extra Technology Limited was formed in 2007, focusing on the provision of IT Automation services. We quickly became a leading provider of Workload Automation, Process Automaton, Automated Operations and Release Automation consultancy and education, building a team of exceptional consultants and satisfied customer-base across the globe.

We soon built a strong mainframe capability working on projects arising from company separations and mergers & acquisitions. We also undertook our first large-scale vendor swap-outs for DB2 and IMS administration tools and Workload Automation products.

2009 saw CA Technologies award Extra Technology the prestigious status of 'Preferred Services Partner'.

Extra Technology's first long-term Managed Services offering also began in 2009.

In 2010 Extra Technology developed IT education materials, including 'applied courses' like "Introduction to Perl for AutoSys Users". We continue to develop courses for our own use and also for resell by software vendors.

In 2012 Extra Technology finally began to sell software solutions. We are a CA Technologies Advanced Partner and the sole Arbiter Software partner focussed on EMEA.
