Local Microsoft Dynamics partner Oberdata has signed a strategic alliance agreement with Tectura, a global provider of Microsoft integrated business solutions to mid-market companies, larger enterprises and their divisions.

This strategic partnership integrates Oberdata into Tectura's focused and highly successful alliance strategy that fosters a closely aligned business relationship.
Tectura selects partners after thorough research and due diligence, requiring the same level of professionalism, expertise, quality and client care from its alliance partners as it does from its own 60 offices around the world. By adding Oberdata to its partner program, Tectura has gained another key counterpart in which to deeply collaborate with as well as share vertical and horizontal solutions, best practices, joint projects and global methodologies.
Ultimately, this effort serves to greatly benefit local and international mid-size companies and major divisions in South Africa.
"Working together with Oberdata enables Tectura to fully deliver its offerings to the Southern African region," says Joerg Niermann, EVP: Central and Eastern Europe at Tectura. "With Oberdata's combined experience with Microsoft Dynamics and the Life Sciences market place, it is the perfect complement for Tectura. Tectura has been working together with Oberdata for some time now and both organisations are confident that our common clients will benefit from this  partnership.
"With access to Tectura's industry solution specifically designed for the Life Sciences market as well as access to our industry experts and vast technical resources around the globe, Oberdata now has an even more powerful offering for the South African market."
Oberdata has strong expertise in delivering Microsoft Dynamics-Navision and services a significant number of customers across the region. The company's growing number of customers and its excellent performance over the last year demonstrates that Oberdata is one of the preferred Microsoft Dynamics partners in South Africa.
"Through this alliance with Tectura, we are better equipped to serve our clients with expanded product and services offerings and are equally as thrilled to offer our local services to Tectura's International clients," says Deon Vosloo, MD of Oberdata. "We are extremely proud to be one of Tectura's selected 'Global Strategic
Alliance Program' partners and are committed to making this partnership a success. Both organisations share the understanding that by working together closely, we will be in a much stronger position to take full advantage of the sizeable market opportunity in South Africa."
A primary goal of the alliance is for Oberdata and Tectura to closely collaborate on Microsoft Dynamics implementations to ensure quality, efficiency and success for each client. The alliance is mutually binding and Tectura is committed to exclusively work with Oberdata for Microsoft Dynamics projects in South Africa.
Likewise, Oberdata will partner with Tectura for International projects in countries where Tectura has an office.
In addition, the alliance provides Oberdata with access to Tectura's industry specific business solutions for Microsoft Dynamics NAV and Microsoft Dynamics AX: designed for the discrete manufacturing, process manufacturing and Life Sciences industry. After finalising training with a Tectura Vertical Solution Centre,  Oberdata will be certified to resell and implement the Tectura industry solutions in South Africa.
The South African market for business solutions — based on the Microsoft Dynamics platform — is growing significantly, especially with Life Sciences.
