Digital Industries (Pty) Ltd signs an AVEVA Select partnership agreement to grow its footprint in the East and West Africa regions
South Africa, Johannesburg, 23 March 2023 – Digital Industries (DI) through its business unit Industry Software Solutions and Support (IS³), announced that it has become an AVEVA Select partner for the East and West Africa regions. AVEVA Select partnership allows Digital Industries to deliver AVEVA’s full portfolio of leading-edge industrial software solutions to customers that will help them become more sustainable and profitable.
The AVEVA Select agreement has set specific strategic intent to support customers’ requirements for improving operational efficiency, driving better returns and increasing the sustainability of their businesses. A people-based ecosystem driving digital transformation is the key enabler to achieving these strategic objectives on the African continent. DI will expand its ecosystem of customers and partners who want to adopt technologies to enable their digital transformation. Leveraging existing indigenous knowledge and skills and creating new skills pools is the key differentiator.
In East Africa, the regional footprint will be led by Kenyan operations AVEVA Select East Africa and the Nigerian representative offices AVEVA Select West Africa will take on a similar role in West Africa. Both these operations are also investing heavily in establishing training and demonstration centres to build these skills pools and to equip system integrators, partner companies and end-users with skills to enable them to maximize the use of the technology and to customize the service offerings available.
The coveted ‘AVEVA Select Partner’ designation allows distributors to enable customers simplify design, optimize production, and maximize performance. By leveraging the breadth of the AVEVA software portfolio, AVEVA Select partners can take advantage of programs designed to suit every product and solution specialization in the engineering and industrial segments. The AVEVA Select Program offers an effective way for partners to penetrate new markets and build upon existing solutions and local relationships.
The AVEVA Select partnership has accelerated the value that DI can provide, empowering their customers and partners to optimize engineering, operations, and asset performance. A common digital thread across all enterprise pillars is enabling a new level of Performance Intelligence using bedrock technologies from Artificial Intelligence (AI), Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), big data to the cloud and hybrid solutions.
With AVEVA’s Engineering solutions, they can assist customers in efficiently delivering capital projects on time and within budget. The AVEVA Operations suite eliminates supply chain value leaks while improving operational efficiency and enhancing collaboration. DI can also empower customers and partners to balance operating expenses and risk to optimize performance with AVEVA Asset Performance Management.
