M2TD, which is a 100% black women owned organisation is fast becoming a leader in the local data management industry, offering a full range of services that includes aspects of information protection, availability and compliance. It provides customised solutions designed to store, move, secure, analyse and integrate data according to its clients’ specific business requirements. Its strategic objective is to build on its established success by adding value for its clients, shareholders and employees alike.
“We’re exceptionally proud of who we are and how far we’ve come,” says CEO, David Matshane. “We started out in 2009 with just three employees and we now have a staff complement of 60. We’ve also developed from being a purely ICT services provider to being the fully diversified company we are today.”
M2TD’s strength lies in networking, ICT security, data centre management and data analytics. A Level 1 B-B BEE contributor, the company is currently in the process of applying for ISO 9001 certification. It also holds several OEM certifications.
“It is our objective to be a leader in the data management space by leveraging off strong technical expertise,” says Matshane. “In order to achieve this, we are constantly improving on our skills base and specialist expertise, and have well-established partnerships with BT, DellEMC, IBM, Cisco, Huawei, amongst others.”
Some key client projects over the years have included:
“In addition to providing excellent service, engaging in continuous improvement and growing the business exponentially, we are deeply committed to helping and empowering communities in need,” says Matshane.
Last year, M2TD joined forces with Enabling Africa, the Marketing Hub and FlySafair to supply 1 000 solar-powered lanterns to learners at Actonville Primary School in Gauteng. This enabled learners who do not have access to electricity at home to do their homework after dark. M2TD also donated laptops and printers to needy matriculants starting their tertiary education studies.
“M2TD has grown into a well-respected specialist in the data field,” says Matshane, “operating both locally and internationally. Together with our global, blue-chip partners, we deliver best-in-class solutions to meet our clients’ data management and security needs, guided by our values of integrity, quality, client orientation, teamwork and innovation, this is what drives us forward.“
