IT systems, software, hardware and consulting services provider, Datacentrix, has secured a multimillion-rand outsourcing project with South Africa-based mining group, Exxaro, after an 18-month lengthy and detailed tender process.

The implementation, which encompasses the outsourcing of Exxaro's operations integration management, enterprise services management and services around the company's site, network, servers and storage, covers a three-year period.

According to Datacentrix CEO, Ahmed Mahomed, the organisation has been tasked with moving Exxaro's total user base of 4 700 employees at 13 sites to the Datacentrix service desk and the Datacentrix operations centre as an initial step.

“The investment that Datacentrix made into its outsourcing business unit has certainly come to fruition with the awarding of the Exxaro tender,” states Mahomed. “Datacentrix competed for the business against all the well established outsource players in the market and succeeded in securing this bid. This affirms our competence, compelling value proposition and cements our position as a player to be reckoned with within the outsourcing space.”


Datacentrix is a leading, black-empowered IT company that provides computing power, business value and solutions to corporate South Africa. Datacentrix celebrated 12 years of successful performance since its listing on the JSE Limited in September 1998. For more information, please visit
