Rainmaker targets African expansion

UK-based digital transformation services specialist Rainmaker Solutions is expanding its South African operations through the appointment of Ross Moody as managing director for the region.

Moody will develop and grow existing and new business both in South Africa and the continent as a whole, said Rainmaker.

Moody comes with 18 years of ICT, channel and marketing experience. He was previously chief customer officer at Tarsus Technology Group and was also at Dimension Data among other organisations. 

Jan Joubert, CEO of Rainmaker Solutions,‎ said: "Our expectations and outlook for the South African market to embrace digital transformation utilising our expertise and approach are very strong. I am fully confident that Ross will prove himself in leading our South African clients to achieve much better alignment between IT and the business." 

Like their UK counterparts, said Joubert,‎ South African organisations are weary of out-dated, expensive and inflexible infrastructure, and want to move towards innovative and digitally-enabled technologies.

“Let’s end the vicious cycle of large scale, expensive and ineffective transformation and lead the way in pragmatic measurable adaptation that will enable SA businesses to always be aligned with needs,” he said.
