South Africa MV Business Forum

Rocket partner, AXIZ (PTY) LTD, hosted a two-day MultiValue event in Sandton, South Africa, May 14 & 15. Rocketeers Iain Ramage, Patrick Griffiths, Claude Masseron and Jamie Devlin flew over from the UK to meet with customers, provide live demos and answer questions. Agenda items included:

  • A Rocket MV roadmap, offering a glimpse at product release plans and future vision
  • A Python discussion related to hiring and retention
  • An overview of the new UniVerse Recoverable File System (RFS)

According to Rezelde Botha, Business Unit Manager, AXIZ (PTY) LTD, “The event was well attended and we’re happy to say our partners are excited about the new features within UniVerse, UniData and D3 and other related tools and products Rocket presented on the day. We’re all passionate about the MultiValue business and it’s refreshing to see how many of them got so excited about the available tools. Thank you, Rocket Software, for assisting Axiz in making this event a great success!”

Also, during a trip to Johannesburg, South Africa, Rezelda Botha, AXIZ,  accompanied Patrick Griffiths and Claude Masseron on a visit to We Think Code, a Non-Profit organization, whose mission is to unlock youth potential by closing the digital skills gap in Africa. We Think Code works within an eco-system of public and private partners to source and train world-class African digital talent; as well as provide their students with a clear path to employment. And, they offer this “tuition free” to the students, thanks to sponsorship by companies looking to support the development of local tech talent in the digital economy.

Patrick and Claude met their CEO and were shown around their amazing facility. We Think Code is keen to add a Rocket MultiValue elective module to their curriculum. As some of their sponsors are MV users, this really is a win win opportunity.

Hi, I'm the Product Marketing Manager for Rocket MultiValue. I returned to MultiValue in 2014. You see, I started my career right out of grad school with Unidata in downtown Denver. Back then I worked with our hardware partners including DEC, Data General, Sequent, HP and many others! Later I moved to MarComm and Product Marketing. I love being back in MV and in my free time enjoy spending time with my family skiing, hiking and enjoying Colorado.
