Lenovo’s Data Centre Group powers Cycling SA through hardware donation

Cycling South Africa’s administration staff were recently the recipients of brand-new Lenovo notebooks, courtesy of Lenovo DCG, the Data Center Group of Lenovo in South Africa.

Lenovo DCG’s Greg Pothitos, himself a keen cyclist, saw an opportunity to provide the national federation with hardware when talking and listening to long-time friend, Alasdair Garnett, Cycling SA’s Coaching Commission Chair. In hearing more about South African cycling and what the federation is wanting to achieve, Greg saw the opportunity to step in and support by supplying Lenovo notebooks.

“Cycling SA’s goals and objectives are huge and very exciting, and while corporate governance is exceptionally strict, being a technology partner presented itself,” said Greg. We worked with one of the distributors, Axiz, to make this reality, and extend thanks to their executive lead Patrick Reeves for helping us to make this happen.”

Lenovo’s new innovations are built for Intelligent Transformation, the idea of people improving their lives through the use of transformative technology – for play, work, or in the home. Challenging the status quo and rethinking form factors and user experiences have resulted in numerous technology breakthroughs in the past fiscal year

Lenovo has two product business groups. The Intelligent Devices Group (IDG) encompasses the PC and Smart Devices business, including PCs, tablets, augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR), smart devices, software and services, and the Mobile business for smartphones. The second group is the Data Center Business Group (DCG), which includes servers, storage, networking, software and services.

Cycling SA General Manager, Mike Bradley, said: “We thank Greg and his team for their kind sponsorship of Lenovo hardware to the staff at Cycling SA. This sponsorship comes at a very opportune time, as the current desktops are over 10 years old and in need of replacement. This sponsorship enables us to achieve our mandate without incurring further administrative expenditure.”
