AxizWorkgroup becomes META’s first CCSP Distributor
On Tuesday, 16 August 2016, AxizWorkgroup was named Red Hat’s first Certified Cloud Service Provider Distributor in META. Since AxizWorkgroup is already a distributor of Red Hat traditional subscriptions, the powerhouse distributor is the obvious choice in helping Red Hat establish their GTM on CCSP in South Africa.
This adds to AxizWorkgroup’s already extensive portfolio and will benefit Partners and Customers alike.
Magda Hanekom, Red Hat Business Unit Manager at AxizWorkgroup, is very excited about this announcement. “AxizWorkgroup will be working closely with Red Hat to ensure this business reaches its full potential. We are very happy to be included in the CCSP ecosystem.”

AxizWorkgroup was formed in April 2011 when Axiz – a leading hardware distributor – and Workgroup – a powerful software distributor – joined forces to take their expertise and best-of-breed practices to the African market.
Axiz, a leading distributor of world class hardware products as well as its own branded range, opened its doors in 1989. The company’s commitment to a strict channel-only policy was extended into the merger. Workgroup was also established in 1989 when it was appointed as the first Microsoft distributor in South Africa.
Workgroup was well known within the South African IT market as a successful specialist knowledge distributor of software and value-based hardware products. Workgroup’s core strength was rooted in being able to predict and integrate with its vendors and resellers’ needs. Known for offering extensive dealer reach with on-going and consistent market penetration, Workgroup brought this key factor into the new entity.
As a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Pinnacle Holdings Group of Companies, the AxizWorkgroup joint entity is positioned to powerfully contribute to the group vision to be the most respected provider of ICT products and services to the African continent based on superior domain knowledge underscored by unparalleled service commitment.read more
