GuatemalaAlfapeople, a Dynamics AX retail specialist, has opened operations in Guatemala. That’s the second new country entered this year by the Microsoft reseller—the first came when Alfapeople entered the United States in late winter. Based in Europe, Alfapeople seems to be moving the opposite direction of Columbus IT Partner, as noted in another item.

In fact, Alfapeople’s CEO Michael Gaardboe founded Columbus IT and Alfapeople got its big start by acquiring Columbus IT's business in Mexico, Costa Rica, Colombia, Brazil, Chile, Germany and Switzerland last year. And in August, Alfapeople hired Claus Hansen, who had succeeded Gaardboe at Columbus IT as its COO. The fact that Prodware purchased the Spanish operations of European reseller Qurius with the goal of building a Latin American practice suggest there’s some competition looming south of the border.
