The Advanced designation also recognises In2IT's investment and commitment to providing cloud and managed services at Cisco's highest standards. The shared goal is to help businesses and organisations realise faster time to value.

"Cloud is increasingly gaining interest in the South African market, and achieving this Advanced designation with the Cisco Cloud and Managed Services Program is enabling us to deliver exceptional services according to Cisco's standards. This ultimately ensures a consistent experience for customers and provides them with confidence in us," said Saurabh Kumar, Managing Director at In2IT Technologies South Africa. "This certification is instrumental for us to achieve our goal of empowering our customers to expand and transform their business, enabling them to compete successfully in a new era of business that is driven by innovation."
