Adapt IT, a dynamic growing company providing specialised business applications in the manufacturing, mining, higher education and financial services sectors has been honoured as the SAP Africa Partner of the Year in the “Managed Cloud as a Service” category at the recent SAP partner summit in Cape Town on July 18, 2013. Adapt IT has built a solid SAP ERP Human Capital Management (SAP ERP HCM) solution with Payroll functionality that has been localised to fit many of the countries’ needs on the African continent and is available to a variety of customers regardless of the size of their business.
“The introduction of the “Managed Cloud as a Service” category into our annual partner awards programme is recognition of the speed at which cloud services are maturing,” says Pankaj Bhula, head of strategic partners Africa, Ecosystems and Channel Division, SAP South Africa.
“Delivering SAP solutions via managed cloud as a service offering requires a combination of technological expertise and business acumen that places these providers at the forefront of where cloud is going within the SAP ecosystem,” adds Bhula. “We congratulate Adapt IT on its well-deserved receipt of this award and for its outstanding partnership with SAP. Partners like Adapt IT are our force multipliers and today, more than ever, they are essential to our customers’ success.”
Sbu Shabala, Adapt IT CEO, expresses his delight at the award, “We are a dynamic company with the energy and vision to deliver cutting-edge IT services. Managed cloud as a service offers clients a way to gain flexibility and scalability with minimal risk and maximum benefits. We are proud to be defining it in the SAP world.”
“Adapt IT cloud solutions obfuscates the complexity of delivering IT services to our customers. Customers need not worry about the underlying IT infrastructure and can focus on the use, development, or administration of the services themselves. This is a powerful paradigm shift as our cloud solutions are always on, infinitely elastic, highly reliable, secure, and return a solid Return On Investment (ROI),” says Shabalala.
