About Ubuntu

Ubuntu is a truly South African Company constantly transforming to provide ICT System Integration and Services, creating value for our customers and partners within Africa. Bringing to fruition their Digital outcomes and aspirations through Innovation and Collaboration, by designing, developing and deploying customer centric solutions, in-conjunction with world leading technologies and maintenance services.

Founded in 1997 from humble beginnings in Bloemfontein as an Empowered ICT Company, we rapidly evolved into a national provider, headquartered in Pretoria.

Our 52% Black ownership and our proudly level 2 BBBEE contributor status may reflect our current position today, but our commitment to empowerment is nothing new and was inherent in our guiding principles since our inception in 1997.

What we do

Our goal is to positively contribute to our customers’ value chain through sustainable strategic relationships. The solutions we provide are designed and implemented according to each customer’s ICT requirements in order to position technology as an enabler in achieving organizational strategic objectives. We have a transparent and integrated approach in solution provisioning across the strategic, tactical and operational competencies, while remaining technology agnostic.

History

The Ubuntu Group of companies was built by a collective spirit of entrepreneurship from our Shareholders and Management with a vision for South African and International business. Most of the group ventures were startups and organically grown apart from a few strategic acquisitions.
