Vodacom Business, Crayon partner to accelerate cloud adoption journey in Africa

AdobeStock 192256964Vodacom Business Africa has partnered with Crayon Africa, a specialist in software asset management (SAM), cloud and volume licensing and related consulting services, to deliver seamless and improved cloud solutions to businesses in Africa as they embark on their cloud-based adoption journey

According to a study by Vodafone Business, ‘future ready’ businesses (FRBs) can be identified by six unifying characteristics, including adaptability, openness to technology and clear transformational objectives. It is no surprise that businesses worldwide have been migrating online as a digital transformation, and the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) is changing the business landscape.

The traditional notion of the sub-scale private cloud within a private data centre is now being replaced by the unlimited access to an array of elastic cloud resources, consumed on a pay per use on demand basis.

Without a doubt, the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated this migration significantly, with businesses optimising their online presence, moving to cloud hosting, and employees working remotely.

Today, cloud computing offers new information technology potential through faster, more flexible and resilient capabilities. This partnership brings together two companies that have invested heavily in technologies capable of digitally transforming African businesses across the continent.
