Salesforce has rewarded those businesses that excelled in 2020, with the Partner of the year prize being awarded to the EXHA consultancy.

Robin Fisher, senior area vice president for EMEA emerging markets, says there was ‘huge’ opportunity for partners in South Africa, and that there are 344 certified Salesforce skills in the country (up 40% year-on-year) holding about 981 credentials (an increase of 58% year-on-year). 
 
He adds that according to IDC, cloud computing annual subscriptions in South Africa will grow 29% annually, from $370 million in 2018, to $1.7 billion in 2024.
“Sub-Saharan Africa is a fast-growing market for Salesforce, boasting over 600 Bank to Cape Union Mart, Liberty and MultiChoice.”
 
IDC’s forecasts show a significant payback from investments in cloud computing out to 2024. But, spending on public cloud computing in South Africa will be less than 11% of spending on total IT – meaning there is massive growth opportunity for local cloud partners, he says.
