By Tom Jackson on March 6, 2018

The Pretoria-based IoT.nxt has developed a framework that moves business beyond islands of automation and towards a seamless horizontally and vertically integrated digital enterprise, and has been expanding in Europe after securing ZAR100 million (US$7.7 million) in funding last year.

The company opened an office in The Hague in December, where it had been engaging with different companies as it sought appropriate partners to help drive its entry into Europe, according to chief executive officer (CEO) Nico Steyn.

That partnership has now been signed with ICT Group, which is ranked in fifth place in the Computable 100, and has reached eighth place in the top 15 ICT service providers in the Netherlands.

“IoT.nxt’s hardware and software solutions in combination with ICT’s domain expertise in different industry verticals as well as the expert knowledge of cloud, machine learning, BI and IoT, will enable us – through this partnership – to completely shape the digital transformation journey of customers,” said Steyn.

Joe Bester, head of IoT.nxt’s Dutch office, said the ICT Group was an ideal partner as it is a leader in their field of expertise, and by partnering with them IoT.nxt would be able to drive business value for any company in any industry.
