Logikal Consulting brings Solix Technologies into South Africa
for security and risk management
Santa Clara, CA (June 08, 2011) - Local solutions integration experts, Logikal Consulting, now supplies
specialist Enterprise Data Management solutions from Solix Technologies in South Africa.
In a first for the country – and the region – Logikal Consulting has completed a deal with Solix to become the
distributor of their products in South Africa and the whole of Africa. Solix is a US-based leader in Enterprise
Data Management and related technology with a 10-year record of success in American and global markets.
“Solix is a global leader in this area,” says Gerald Naidoo, group chief executive at Logikal Consulting. “Data
Management is, at once, a highly specialised field and one that is critically important for many of our
enterprise clients, especially in financial services.”
The challenge of data management for major companies is a serious issue. It involves both archived data
that has to be retained for compliance as well as the common situation of having legacy applications that
must be retained or replaced.
“The first Solix product we offer addresses both the primary needs in a single package,” says Mahesh
Chavan, CTO at Logikal Consulting. “The Solix ExAPPS is an appliance. It is not hardware that needs
software loaded onto it and it is not a software solution that needs to be configured. It is a single device
with its own, built-in software that makes Data Management almost a plug-and-play experience.
“It covers all aspects of Data Management, especially the key areas of database archiving and application
“This appliance solution from Solix is a best-fit in many industries,” says Naidoo. “Firstly, it is cost-
effective. Secondly, it is platform agnostic – easily and quickly deployed. Lastly, it answers a range of
critical business needs.
“These include: compliance with regulatory and legislative requirements to global standards; management
of the major business risks involved in losing data or application availability; and the overall need to achieve
these goals in a cost-effective manner. While other solutions offer an end-to-end approach, this can be
cumbersome and expensive. It also takes time and resources to deploy and may have limited abilities to
answer unique business needs.
Solutions from Solix Technologies support an agile business approach that offers the highest security without
unrealistic capital expenditure.
“Reports show that the South Africa economy is growing and, with that, there is increasing demand for
storage and server capacity,” says Sai Gundavelli, CEO of Solix Technologies. “Our partnership with Logikal
Consulting enables organizations to invest in proven data management solutions to meet this demand in an
efficient and cost-effective manner.”
“While we are sure that our financial services clients will be the first to take advantage of this offering, we
also see enormous potential for the same solution in other business sectors and very much in the public
sector – where issues of cost, reliability, service delivery and secure storage are paramount,” says Naidoo.
“This is, quite simply, the world-leading answer to typical Data Management issues,” says Chavan. “Not only
is it the latest technology, it is supported by Logikal Consulting and our highly skilled staff of over 250
people. It is the easiest and safest way to handle key aspects of Data Management without tearing down the
whole network and all its sytems.”
