JOHANNESBURG (12/03/2003) - A local ICT engineer from African Legend Indigo (AL Indigo) -- the new black-owned enterprise solutions company -- has achieved the highest mark ever for a Veritas Foundation Suite examination in the Veritas Partner Programme (VPP).
Jaco Steyn is the only individual in EMEA ever to have received 98 percent for the Veritas Foundation Suite certification exam. Spiro Zambelis, sales manager at AL Indigo, says that the excellent results achieved are a tribute to the experience that the company has in the Veritas arena.
"While we had been working with Veritas for some time we only considered certifying our sales and technical team fairly recently. Once the decision was taken to go the certification route, the process took only six weeks. As a result, the team is now cross-skilled and cross-certified from a sales and technical perspective. Certification means that end-user customers can rely on the fact that AL Indigo can be relied on as a trusted Veritas supplier with the necessary skills on board for total storage solutions."
"The dedication of Jaco and the rest of the Veritas team to the product was born out in the preparations and the results of the certification exams. Their ability to apply theory to practice, and knowledge of high-availability and back-up systems, paid off and showed in their excellent results. This means that our customers can be assured that our experience in and knowledge of the Veritas platform is world-class -- and that we can deliver, and maintain, the systems that are critical to the success of our clients' businesses," he adds.
"In addition, our solution architects are part of the Veritas Solutions Architects Forum, which complements our infrastructure services side and solutions offering. Our certified sales force completes our offering in the structure and management of ICT infrastructure solutions," Zambelis continues.
AL Indigo is certified under the VPP as one of five elite partners in this country - the highest level on the program.
