We’re the newest (and only) Atlassian Platinum Solution Partner in South Africa. And we think this news is lekker. 

(Lekker [lek-uh] is a widely used term in South Africa indicating that something is ‘great’ or ‘nice’. For example, ‘The food was lekker’, or ‘We had a lekker day.’)

The software market in South Africa is estimated to reach US $4.9 billion in value by 2025, a 40% increase from 2020. This growth presents a huge opportunity for Adaptavist to support more customers in progressing their digital transformation agendas and stay competitive in the face of change. 

We’re offering our complete portfolio of Atlassian solutions in the region, further consolidating our global footprint and helping enterprises advance digital transformation by leveraging cloud technology, embracing agile ways of working and putting enterprise service management at the heart of transformation.

Simon Haighton-Williams, CEO of Adaptavist explains:

“Growth in the South African market has been heavily driven by cloud computing usage. This is fertile ground for us to support businesses in modernising legacy systems and ways of working, while supporting the local economy by offering training and employment opportunities.

“There are only five other Atlassian Solution Partners in South Africa until now. Adaptavist is offering a much-needed regional Atlassian focus, and we look forward to growing our presence with local talent.

“This is just one example of our commitment to the Sub-Saharan region. We also recently added Gravity Works (also based in South Africa) to the Adaptavist Group portfolio, who specialise in delivering SAFe, leadership and role-based agile coaching and training.”

Shawn Danisa, a key Atlassian consultant based in South Africa, explains:

“I’m proud that our depth of expertise and experience with Atlassian products in South Africa has been recognised with Platinum Solution Partner status. 

“Our wide-ranging technical capabilities means our local consultants can deliver everything from cloud migrations to end-to-end fully managed services right here in South Africa. Our primary job is to make sure businesses get more from their Atlassian tools - so if you’re an Atlassian expert, get in touch!”
