Datacentrix, a provider of high performing and secure ICT solutions, has clinched the 'Africa Partner of the Year' award at OpenText's 2018 Innovation Tour conference, which took place in Johannesburg recently as part of the enterprise information management (EIM) firm's global series of events held in nine cities around the world.

As one of OpenText's longest standing local partners and its only Platinum Partner in Africa, Datacentrix has received a number of accolades from the company over the past few years, including the 'SAP Solution Enhancement of the Year' award in 2017, and the international 'Fast Growth Market Partner of the Year' in 2015.

Datacentrix clients have also received serious recognition from OpenText, including 'Go-Live Project of the Year', 'Customer of the Year', and 'Customer Ambassador of the Year', all in 2017 alone.

"Earning top honours at this year's local OpenText partner award is a huge accomplishment for us," explains Juane Peacock, managing director: coastal region and EIM at Datacentrix. "As an OpenText Platinum Partner, we've taken the EIM journey with OpenText for 18 years now, reflecting a true collaboration between the two companies. Over this time we've proven our implementation prowess, breadth of coverage within OpenText's portfolio, depth of skills, the provision of critical value to clients, and our overall commitment to the organisation.

"Receiving acknowledgment as OpenText's top partner not only verifies our dedication to this partnership, it also cements our reputation of excellence within the South African EIM market," he states.

"Datacentrix has shown consistent commitment to OpenText over the years by focusing on our solutions and investing in skills on an ongoing basis. This is challenging, with our vast and ever increasing EIM solutions portfolio. We have also jointly driven a successful graduate programme, which has increased the skills base on the OpenText technologies," says Lenore Kerrigan, Country Sales Director, Africa.
