In an effort to help its customers demonstrate their level of expertise in the growing market for Business Discovery, QlikTech, (NASDAQ: QLIK) a leader in Business Discovery – user-driven Business Intelligence (BI) – has announced it is extending its QlikView 11 Certification Programme.  The QlikView 11 Certification Programme for customers expands QlikTech’s previously announced Certification Programme for partners.  The QlikView 11 Certification Programme, now available to customers and members of the Qonnect Partner Programme, validates the knowledge and skills of QlikView users and provides a quantitative way to confirm their understanding and capabilities with the QlikView Business Discovery platform.

“QlikTech partners and customers are well positioned to benefit from the incredible growth opportunity in Business Discovery,” said Kim Peretti, vice president of global education services at QlikTech.  “Certified individuals have demonstrated high levels of technical excellence and productivity, which enhances their credentials. Organisations with certified professionals on their team are better positioned to achieve improved project deployments, overall IT efficiency and greater returns on their QlikView investments.”

The QlikView 11 Certification Programme, which is comprised of three offerings – QlikView Certified Designer, QlikView Certified Developer, and QlikView Certified System Administrator – requires a combination of recommended classroom sessions and practical, hands-on project experience.  Each exam allows QlikTech to measure the product knowledge and skills acquired by customers and enables customers to benchmark their skills against an established level of competency.

To expand the delivery and reach of the QlikView 11 Certification Programme, QlikTech has entered into an agreement with Pearson VUE, the global leader in computer-based testing services for academic admissions, certification and licensure programmes. QlikView Designer and QlikView Developer Certification Exams are now available in eight languages: Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese (Simplified), French, German, English, Japanese, Russian, and Spanish.

The impact of cloud computing on managed services

By admin, 28 września, 2012, No Comment

With the inception of cloud computing and the uptake seen across a multitude of industries, many managed service providers (MSP) are assessing the impact on their clients. Certain cloud based technologies are still perceived as “locking in” a client to one MSP making it difficult, if not impossible to switch providers.  “The process of moving business applications between cloud providers can be substantially more challenging than just changing an outsourced IT service infrastructure provider,” says Gavin Halse, Director of Product Strategy at Adapt IT.  As a result, IT Directors have identified this perceived lock-in as one of the major inhibitors to moving their strategic applications to an external provider, or seeking out a managed service provider.

“One of our key offerings at Adapt IT is the provision of managed services across server, database, disaster recovery and hosted environments, but with the increase in our cloud based offering, we are still seeing hesitation from the CIO’s we deal with,” says Halse. To mitigate the possible risk, some CIO’s are investigating on-premise private cloud solutions which allow them to learn the technology in a “safe” environment and partially reduce the risk of vendor lock in.  “This approach is entirely rational; because choosing a cloud provider is highly strategic and there is still relatively little experience a CIO can rely on to assess the longer term impact on the business.”

Halse says along with the impact of cloud on managed services, another key element is the current economic climate. “In several industries, specifically those that have been under cost pressures for a long time, such as manufacturing, the additional cost savings when adopting managed services are small, and the total cost over three to five years may even increase in an outsourced model.  While infrastructure costs will certainly decrease, the cost of specialised applications could rise owing to increased complexity of a distributed system.  This needs to be carefully weighed up against the value achieved by making the transition.”

He says that companies that are unable to offer career paths around specialised IT skills and that might need the ability to rapidly scale up (or down) usually choose an outsourcing model where the responsibility for managing IT staff is transferred to the service provider.  “Clients who partner with service providers with a good understanding of their particular industry domain and business will benefit by being able to outsource more than pure ‘commodity services’, and ultimately reduce the risk of losing key skills.”

Halse warns that smaller companies frequently do not have the skills needed to craft an effective SLA contract and this is another key risk in assessing an outsourced model. He says that in all companies the pendulum can swing between an insourced model and an outsourced model and back again over time.   “This requires flexibility in the contracts and a good understanding of the risks associated with handing over parts of your key business systems to a third party”.

“Understanding the fast moving and dynamic nature of the technology environments, including cloud, should be the role of service providers like Adapt IT.  However in many situations, owing to the high rate of change, end users can bypass the traditional IT function and look to opportunistically sourcing a portfolio of managed services from several providers.  In this sense cloud computing can be introduced into enterprises by stealth for example: mobile mail, social media, cloud storage and backup.  This introduces new risks to the business that IT will need to deal with” concludes Halse.

Cell C Switches on Potchefstroom and Klerksdorp

By admin, 28 września, 2012, No Comment

Cell C today brings much needed data connectivity to the academic city of Potchefstroom, with coverage extending as far as Klerksdorp in the North West Province, with the launch of its 3G network using HSPA+ technologies.

The two small towns follow the launch of the network in Mafikeng, which was the first city in the province to enjoy high-speed data connectivity from Cell C after years of being considered an underserviced area.

“The roll-out of our network in the province confirms our commitment to bringing connectivity to all South African. Since our launch we have brought access to all the major cities and have deployed 3000 base stations across the country,” says Karin Fourie, Cell C’s Executive Head: Communications.

The company is aggressively rolling out its network by adding between 120 and 150 base stations countrywide on a monthly basis.

As part of Cell C’s drive to bring Internet access to those that have traditionally been without, Cell C will also connect underprivileged schools in the area. The company has identified Tlokwe Secondary School in Ikageng Location as a beneficiary to receive much-needed internet connectivity for their computer lab. They will join Lapologang High School, Kebonang Secondary School in Montshioa and Montshioa Town Clinic, which were connected by Cell C just over a year ago.

Customers hoping to benefit from the launch promotions in Potchefstroom should visit the Cell C Store in MooiRivier. For further details customers can visit any Cell C participating outlet or our website for great deals.

Cell C recently introduced a range of new voice and data products aimed at simplifying and making mobile services more affordable for the South African consumer. With the launch of 99c For Real, Cell C slashed prepaid rates by more than 34% and the company’s new Straight Up contract packages help customers chose the simplest offer on the market. Customers with friends and family abroad will also benefit from Cell C’s unprecedented rates for international calls, including the 99c rate to more than 50 countries.

“Cell C isn’t finished yet. The mobile consumer in South Africa has and will continue to benefit, and so will South Africa as a whole,” concludes Fourie.

By admin, 28 września, 2012, No Comment

Pusha – where you want to be 

Samsung will expand its range of low-cost mobile phones with the introduction of the Samsung Pusha mobile device range – a feature phone range that is not only cost effective but also provides the reliability of a leading mobile brand and the connectivity expected by today’s consumers.

“Through market research and evaluation we noticed a gap in the market for cost effective feature phones that go beyond merely standard feature phone functionality and that allow consumers to connect with their friends and family through social networking and IP messaging,” says Craige Fleischer, Director of Mobile Communications at Samsung Electronics SA. “As such, the Samsung Pusha mobile phone range is a feature phone that is targeted at these markets – enabling us to continue to assist in bridging the digital divide that is still very much a reality locally.”

Common features across the Pusha range include a stylish compact design with contrast colour edging and a unique textured back surface for better grip. Furthermore, these phones boast a range of security features including; Mobile Tracker – a feature that allows consumers to recover their phone if lost or stolen, SOS Message and Fake Call. The Pusha range is user friendly and boasts a 24 month guarantee; ensuring consumers get the very best value for money from these phones.  The range comprises of 3 different products including:


The Pusha phone comes with a bright colour 1.52” TFT display, ensuring an excellent viewing experience, as well as with a powerful 800m Ah battery for longer talk and standby time. Furthermore, the device allows for MP3 ringtones, so that consumers no longer need to listen to monotone melodies, but rather have access to their favourite songs when receiving incoming calls and messages.

Pusha FM

The Pusha FM phone comes standard with FM Radio, keeping consumers up-to-date with the latest music, news, sports and weather; ensuring they never miss out on their regular radio shows even when they’re out and about. This phone also has an embedded torch light which acts as a handy flashlight to brighten up any situation. This is an invaluable safety feature, which can be useful when least expected. This phone also comes with MP3 ringtone functionality.

Pusha 2SIM

A significant percentage of mobile phone users in Africa carry multiple SIM cards to take advantage of the different pricing plans and network coverage on offer from the various operators. By allowing these users to automatically switch between two SIM cards without having to carry an additional handset or turn off the phone to swop out a SIM, Samsung is helping to meet a critical need in the market with DUOS technology which allows both SIM cards to be active and ‘always on’.

The Pusha 2SIM has been specifically been developed to meet the unique needs of consumers in the African market. This device supports GPRS dual band technology enabling  the user to connect to the internet, download podcasts and access social networking sites like Facebook, Mxit and Google Talk – for many consumers in this price category, for the first time. A 1000mAh battery, boasts an 11-hour talk time and 550 hours of standby time. The Dual-SIM ‘Always On’ functionality, ensures the user never miss a call. Couple this with the 1.8” TFT screen, MP3, and FM Radio, the Samsung Pusha 2SIM keeps you in touch wherever you go. Micro SD support offers additional storage for games and favourite music files.

“There is a perception that low-cost mobile phones are not reliable. Samsung is proud to say that our Pusha range of mobile phones is not only cost-effective, but it is also ultra-durable – and with great battery life the Samsung Pusha range is certainly designed with the South African consumer in mind,” concludes Fleischer.

The Samsung Pusha mobile phone range will be available from leading mobile operators and Samsung Brand Stores at the below recommended retail pricing:

  • Pusha – R139.00
  • Pusha FM – R169.00
  • Pusha 2SIM – R299.00
