Building Ecosystems | Transcending Technology


Axiz Advanced Technologies is the enterprise technologies core of the business.

Currently housing over 35 of the world’s leading enterprise software and hardware vendors, Advanced Technologies focuses on future-facing technologies, which require a more sophisticated sales and engineering capability.

This is an incubation hub for partners, and often end-users, to join on state-of-the-art vendor technologies in a viable ecosystem.

Complex business challenges require a perspective on both the most suitable product offering, as well as the scope, design, and solution required to solve the business problem. Advanced Technologies combines all of these elements with experienced business unit managers, world-class solutions architects and business development managers to drive the partnerships and build world-class solutions.

Advanced Technologies not only platforms pioneering technologies but also provides superior technical expertise throughout the distribution sales funnel. Having made commercial investments in vendor technologies, Advanced Technologies is a technological proving ground for partners to get a first-hand experience of how vendor technology can solve very specific, and complex, business challenges.

The Advanced Technologies portfolio encompasses a broad spectrum of enterprise and telco (telecommunications service provider) technologies. It spans from hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) networking and storage to analytics, databases, security frameworks and virtualisation technologies.
