Commvault partners with GTI Software for French speaking African countries

0

Commvault has recently appointed the Morocco based value-added distributor, GTI Software and Networking as its distributor for the 27 French-speaking countries in Africa.

Gerhard Fourie, Channel Lead at Commvault Africa said “GTI’s ability to help Commvault navigate potential pitfalls around financing and tax in each country in French-speaking Africa will add sustainability to its engagement in the region. Onboarding GTI as a new distributor will definitely help Commvault tap into a new key market. Especially given that GTI’s experience – especially in Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria – will benefit and ease our go-to-market push in those regions. They also provide us with much-needed access to French-speaking resources.”

The company clarified that Commvault’s Metallic Software-as-a-Service platform will not form part of the distribution agreement, as it is currently not available in the North African region, and so there is no drive around this product at present.

Commenting on the partnership, Hicham Boumesli, Africa Regional Director at GTI points out that teaming up with Commvault has always been on the North African company’s radar, given Commvault’s expertise and best-of-breed technology offerings and said “It would be fair to say that Commvault has been one of our targets for a very long time, not only due to its cutting-edge solutions but also based on its global reach. We are very happy to be Commvault’s first Master distributor in French-speaking Africa.”

“Commvault will also utilise its Market Development Funds (MDF) and alliance processes to help drive awareness and sustainability, while we will obviously play a crucial role in assisting them to leverage the vast opportunities that this market offers,” he added.
