SoftwareOne appoints business development lead
Makhosini Dlamini has been appointed as business development executive for South Africa and Africa, by SoftwareOne.
In his role at SoftwareOne, Dlamini will be supported by Marilyn Moodley, country leader and local director for South Africa and Africa, as well as a sales team consisting of Kyasha Wardman, Thiren Reddy, Calvin Kodisang, and Navi Pillay.
Commenting on Dlamini's appointment, Moodley says: "With a commendable track record, I am confident that Dlamini will play a key role in propelling SoftwareOne to new heights."
Dlamini has over 16 years of experience in ICT, including 11 years at Microsoft, where he held several positions, including service delivery manager, account technology strategist, and account executive, and was involved in various projects such as UNISA's migration to Microsoft AD/Exchange and the adoption of the AD/Exchange platform by the South African Department of International Relations and Cooperation.
In addition, Dlamini has experience with Oracle, having managed sales in several SADC countries prior to joining SoftwareOne from Vodacom, where he was responsible for Microsoft cloud sales.
Dlamini says: "Our approach begins by delving into their core business objectives and challenges, allowing us to tailor technology to facilitate their growth. It's not merely about technology; it’s about understanding and resonating with the intricacies of each business.”
According to him, many clients recognise the need to migrate to the cloud, but face budgetary constraints.
He says migration to the cloud is a complex and resource-intensive endeavour that necessitates the reconstruction of workloads and applications.
Dlamini asserts that it is more crucial than ever for businesses to realise the value of technology in the face of persistent global economic constraints.
