Adapt IT has entered into a partnership with Ventyx, a company owned by ABB, in a step that will take Adapt IT further in its quest to deliver solutions to African clients in the energy and utilities sector.

“This partnership is specifically targeted at accelerating Adapt IT’s ability to deliver solutions, services and support to the energy and utilities sector,” explains Sbu Shabalala, CEO at Adapt IT.

Ventyx’s enterprise resource planning (ERP) software solutions are designed to bridge the gap between information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT), enabling clients in specialised industries including mining, public infrastructure and utilities to make faster, better-informed decisions.

Johan Engelbrecht, vice-president: sales Africa at Ventyx, notes that Adapt IT brings a proven track record in the sale, implementation and support of specialist ERP solutions in a range of industries.

“With this partnership, Ventyx has greatly improved the potential for sales and support of its solutions in key southern African markets,” he says. “Our software is capable of improving the performance and management of asset intensive industries in the vibrant economies of the African sub-continent.”

Adapt IT will seek to further opportunities for the deployment of Ventyx solutions in the energy and utilities sector.

Specialist software like Ellipse, provided by Ventyx, allow organisations in specific vertical industries to benefit from ERP software that goes further than the front and back office and reaches directly into operations. Adapt IT is accredited to provide local support for companies considering the internationally proven Ventyx solutions.

“We look forward to a successful and mutually beneficial partnership with Ventyx and to include the Ventyx solution offering into our product portfolio, as we seek the best-of-breed solutions for our customer environments,” says Shabalala.
