  • Datacentrix’s history, when it was founded, its JSE listing and the acquisition by Alviva;
  • The business’s key focus areas today;
  • Why Alviva decided to sell;
  • What the Convergence Partners deal means for the future of Datacentrix; and
  • Whether the company might head back to the JSE at some point.
