Mandriva opens West Africa office

By   |  February 23, 2007

Popular Linux distributor Mandriva yesterday announced plans to open an office in Nigeria in an effort to expand its market.

Mandriva will establish a subsidiary company, named Mandriva West Africa, which will be headquartered in Lagos.

In a statement yesterday the company said the “goal of Mandriva West Africa is to provide local distribution of Mandriva Linux and other integrated open source applications in English and French throughout the West Africa region.”

The company expects the West Africa office to work with regional original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to bundle Mandriva Linux with their hardware as well as work with independent software vendors to establish an open source integration environment for locally developed software.

The office is also expected to work with educational organisations in the region to make computers more accessible to learners.

Mandriva West Africa will look to establish a certified business partner programme in the region and establish authorised Mandriva education centres that will provide Linux Professional Institute (LPI) training.

“The OEM versions of all Mandriva products are currently available and running on hardware from major international OEM vendors like HP, IBM/Lenovo, Dell and Acer. Mandriva West Africa plans to work with local OEMs in bundling these products on their hardware,” said Dele Ajisomo, Mandriva representative for West Africa.
