South Africa slams reseller corruption in public sector
Also: Horizon, Pegasus
Reseller round-up South Africa's government has slammed ICT vendors which sell “exorbitant, irrelevant” solutions to local government departments.
Joe Mazibuko, of the State IT Agency's provincial and local government services, points to a municipality which had signed "a 50-year contract, without an exit clause, with a local service provider". Nice work, if you can get it.
Pegasus Software has promoted Kevin McCallum to channel sales director for the UK and Ireland. McCallum joined the accountancy software vendor in 2001 and most recently ran its product specialist team. Pegasus is part of Systems Union.
Horizon Technology, the Irish-owned mid-range reseller, has become an IBM Business Partner in the UK
