GitHub signs pan-EMEA agreement with Nuvias

GitHub signed its first pan-EMEA distribution agreement, with fast-growing value added distributor, Nuvias.

Representing a commitment by Nuvias to accelerate the growth of its DevOps business, the new partnership is to expand Github’s enterprise customer base across the Middle East, Africa and Europe.

The software development platform is a web-based Git version control tool and repository for code development, providing access control and collaboration features such as feature requests, bug tracking, wikis and task management.

Paul Eccleston, CEO of Nuvias Group, said: “Software and applications are now the heart of business and the basis for digital transformation, innovation and efficiency.

“With businesses needing to deliver quality applications quickly so they can compete and gain market share, GitHub will be at the centre of our portfolio of integrated tools and services to enable collaborative development, quality, security, automation and user-experience monitoring.”

From start-ups to global teams of thousands, development teams can harness the GitHub platform to discover, use and contribute to projects more effectively, regardless of organisation or geography.

Catherine King, channel manager at GitHub, added: “GitHub Business allows companies large and small to collaborate on important projects more effectively, improving productivity within their development teams.

“With Nuvias’ focus on accelerating its DevOps business, this partnership will help more companies across the globe get the most from their GitHub deployments, whether they choose the hosted option or on-premise.”

Eccleston also noted GitHub allows companies to multiply forces and employ 1000s of developers on improving and optimising code.
