Adapt IT launches their first Knowledge Centre in Amaoti

By admin, 23 maja, 2013, No Comment

Adapt IT, a growing and innovative IT Company, launched their first Knowledge Centre on 21 May 2013. The centre will serve as a computer lab for the more than 1400 children and 45 educators of the Zwakele Primary School in Amaoti, the largest informal settlement in Kwa-Zulu Natal with a population of more than 80,000. The initiative is a joint venture between Adapt IT, Angel Projects (a social investment agency), Africa Learn (a training company) and the Department of Education.

“The opening of the computer lab forms an integral part of our social investment drive and will support long-term community development by encouraging the youth to embrace technology and give them the necessary skills to contribute to the ICT sector,” said Adapt IT CEO, Sbu Shabalala, CEO.

The state of the art computer and internet training facility, funded by Adapt IT, comprises of 50 computers, all installed with the necessary software and internet connections. In the centre learners will have access to quality IT training. In order to ensure a conducive and learner friendly environment, the classroom was repainted and refurnished with new blinds, desks and chairs. An interactive white board, printer and air-conditioning system were also installed.

“As part of our social responsibility, it is important for us to ensure a comprehensive and sustainable training programme is in place for both the educator and learner. Africa Learn was contracted to oversee all training and it will include an onsite facilitator for a period of six months. All courses will be personalised to meet the needs of the school and will allow for maximum flexibility. The course for the teachers will run over a period of six months, empowering them to provide the necessary IT training to the children,” said Shabalala.

Angel Projects were managing the project to ensure sustainability of the lab into the future. “It was a privilege to work on this project with Adapt IT and we look forward to installing more of these labs,” said Brenda Scheepers, owner of Angel Projects.

Dr Thabi Nkabinde, from the Department of Education, was also grateful for the investment by Adapt IT and said it helps to protect the quality of education in the province. “If children receive good IT education, they can compete in the world and have a better quality of life in the end.”

School Principal, Sam Makhanya expressed his sincere appreciation for the new computer lab and said he is excited about the quality of learning it will offer, all in a space dedicated to the children.

“We are planning to install more computer labs in future and will be using Zwakele Primary as a blueprint for future initiatives,” said Shabalala. He also thanked all the partners for their contribution and commitment in making this initiative a reality.

Xerox’s new production printer helps customers bring in more jobs

By admin, 23 maja, 2013, No Comment

Transactional colour variable-print volumes are expected to achieve unprecedented growth at an annual rate of 25% between 2011 and 2016, according to worldwide document technology strategy and consulting firm InfoTrends.

Print service providers can capture more variable-data print jobs with the new Xerox Colour 8250 Production Printer – an economical choice that is versatile enough to meet the demanding needs of this marketplace.

“The 8250 follows a long line of transactional devices that have established Xerox as the leader in the variable-print segment,” says Paul Haglich, product marketing manager at Bytes Document Solutions. “The 8250 has the potential to fill the gap between the ultra-high volume ink jet presses where minimum print volumes of 10 million plus images per month are required to justify the size of investment, and the one to two million images per month volume band which is more common in the South African market.”

The system is targeted for 800 000 to four million impressions per month and will deliver variable, vibrant colour. It eliminates the need for preprinted offset shells – allowing print service providers to offer the additional value of one-pass colour on statements and direct mail pieces.

“The printer fills a sweet spot in our production mix while complementing our Xerox Nuvera and iGen presses,” says Alan Olivero, president of Matrix Imaging Systems, one of the first customers to buy an 8250.

Additional features include:

  • A full complement of workflow offerings supported by the Xerox FreeFlow Print Server, delivering seamless integration into any print environment. The print server is also equipped with IPDS, PDF, PCL and PS licenses and supports LCDS data streams through Xerox FreeFlow VI DesignPro, Lytrod Proform Designer and Solimar PrintDirector Enterprise.
  • Automated features move more jobs through production faster, including an optional roll feeder and a variety of inline finishing options.
  • Patented technology called Auto Density Control detects streaks in output before they occur and fixes them without operator intervention – ensuring consistent image density across the page.
  • Inline Spectrophotometer allows for PANTONE matching and more accurate, repeatable colour.

The introduction of the 8250 comes on the heels of Xerox’s acquisition of Impika, a leader in the design, production and sale of production inkjet printing solutions used for industrial, commercial, security, label and package printing, representing another example of the company’s commitment to ensure customers have technology choices that enable them to compete in the transactional marketplace.

To help make the most of their technology investments, Xerox offers customers the largest collection of business development tools and services in the industry. In South Africa, Bytes Document Solutions offers the services of XL Business Development to help customers grow their digital businesses.

The Xerox Color 8250 Production Printer is available immediately in the US, and will be launched in phases worldwide, from July 1, 2013. Launch is subject to anticipated market demand and local economic factors in various countries.

Motorola Solutions and newly acquired Psion will introduce the widest mobile solutions for enterprises

By admin, 23 maja, 2013, No Comment

Integrated portfolio of solutions to be showcased during the annual Enterprise Mobility Forum held by the end of May in Johannesburg

Motorola Solutions, Inc. and Psion will be showcasing their integrated range of solutions at this year’s Enterprise Mobility Forum, to be held from 29 – 30 May at the Sandton Sun in Johannesburg. The Enterprise Mobility Forum brings together the technology leaders in enterprise mobility to debate, discuss and demonstrate how mobile technologies can drive efficiency in enterprises.

Motorola Solutions acquired Psion in October last year for $200 million in cash. This has enabled Motorola Solutions to flesh out its mobile computing portfolio and gain deep expertise in the manufacturing, industrial and supply chain sectors where Psion has traditionally been very strong.

Key Points:

  • Warehouses and distribution centers are one of the most critical inflection points in an increasingly complex global supply chain. Enhanced productivity, worker safety and business growth all can be realized through mobile technology by automating, enhancing and streamlining processes.
  • The newly combined Motorola Solutions and Psion portfolio of products and solutions spans from Retail through Transport & Logistics, Warehousing, Manufacturing, Wholesale Trade, Petrochemical, Healthcare and Government.
  • Due to Psion’s acquisition, Motorola now offers a new segment solution for enterprise mobile computing – powering field industrial line workers with WAN enabled devices for extreme outdoor environments.
  • Today Motorola Solutions with Psion offers complete end to end solutions for both knowledge workers and line workers – both indoors and outdoors.

Carlos Ferraz, General Manager for Motorola Solutions Africa – Enterprise
“Psion bolsters our strategic position in important industrial segments such as manufacturing and transportation and logistics, increases our cross-selling opportunities and expands our global enterprise solutions portfolio. From a South African perspective Psion’s IP and talent has been retained. Psion had a large presence here and we have a much bigger combined company.”
Ferraz emphasises that the company will not be pulling any of its product segments, but rather extending them now that the acquisition is complete.

Michelle Hollis, Country Sales Director for Motorola Solutions S. Africa (previously country manager of Psion) says the companies’ product and solutions sets and the markets they address are very complementary, with very little overlap. “And where we do overlap, this means that we have a bigger basket of products to offer our customers.”

New EA SPORTS IGNITE engine to power EA SPORTS games on next generation consoles

By admin, 23 maja, 2013, No Comment

Madden NFL 25, FIFA 14, NBA LIVE 14 and EA SPORTS UFC to launch within next 12 months

Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) announced that it has developed EA SPORTS™ IGNITE, a new game engine that will power EA SPORTS games on Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and PlayStation®4. Fueled by EA SPORTS IGNITE, EA SPORTS games will be alive with players who think, move, and behave like real athletes and dynamic living worlds, transforming the way people play and experience games on next gen consoles. Created with the EA SPORTS IGNITE engine, Madden NFL 25, FIFA 14, NBA LIVE 14, and EA SPORTS™ UFC, will each launch within the next 12 months.

EA SPORTS IGNITE blends new technology with the best rendering, run-time physics, animation, intelligence, locomotion, and online systems from across EA into one powerful, new engine. Athletes will possess human-like intelligence for advanced decision-making, players will have the agility required to change speeds and directions with true athletic motion, and living worlds will make the game experience as rich and dynamic as real-world stadiums and arenas. A video showcasing how EA SPORTS games will look and play on Xbox One can be viewed here.

“Through years of investment and innovation, we have built technology across EA SPORTS to create a game engine that will deliver stunning accuracy, realism and experiences that we previously could only dream about,” said Andrew Wilson, Executive Vice President and Head of EA SPORTS. “With EA SPORTS IGNITE and the power of next generation consoles, our games will come alive—with more authenticity, more emotion, more connectivity, and more fun.”

Athletes in EA SPORTS next gen games will be able to make intelligent decisions with human-like reaction times. EA SPORTS IGNITE computes four times more calculations per second than previous consoles, unlocking nearly infinite potential for how players think, and enabling them to make more difficult decisions faster.

Players are alive with contextual awareness and instincts—thinking, anticipating, and reacting—just like real athletes, and players are conscious of their environment. In FIFA 14, for example, a player’s sense of urgency increases as the match draws on and a goal is needed, rushing to take a free kick, corner, or goal-kick if time is running down.

EA SPORTS IGNITE will deliver the dynamic movements and biomechanics of the world’s best athletes. With 10 times more animation depth and detail than previous consoles, and thousands of new sport-specific animations to drive new locomotion systems, players now plant, pivot and cut, quickly change speeds, and shift momentum with the agility and explosiveness of superstar athletes.

EA SPORTS games for the next generation will have stunning accuracy and visuals. By creating living worlds, the in-game environment is now as dynamic as real-world stadiums and arenas that change throughout a match. For the first time ever, 3D crowds and dynamic sidelines will impact the experience, and rich sports atmospheres will change organically based on the progress of a match. Player actions will change depending on the situation, and crowds will have an expectation of how a game is likely to play out, and react accordingly.

Madden NFL 25, FIFA 14, EA SPORTS UFC and NBA LIVE 14, will release worldwide within the next 12 months on Xbox One and the PlayStation 4, and will be available for pre-order soon. Madden NFL 25 will release in North America on August 27 and worldwide on August 30 on the Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. FIFA 14 will also be available on the Xbox 360, PlayStation3, PC and additional platforms. The release date has not yet been announced.

execMobile offers global first data roaming solution

By admin, 23 maja, 2013, No Comment

execMobile now offers mobile executives convenient, cost effective mobile data roaming as a post-paid service, reducing the cost of data connectivity by as much as 98% when travelling outside South Africa. Total cost control is delivered over a real time global mobile platform to completely eliminate data roaming “bill shock”.

Craig Lowe, execMobile founder, says the solutions are targeted at executives who have to travel overseas regularly and need solutions which are both convenient and reduce the average international data cost of around R100 per MB.

execMobile offers corporates the options of “arrive connected” convenience in 74 countries or a data bundle service which offers greater coverage in 128 countries at even better rates. All services are billed at month end with no fixed monthly costs.

The international data market is a $45 billion dollar industry and 67 percent of the market is made up by corporate employees who travel overseas and need to be connected from wherever they are. Around 5.2 million people travel out of South Africa every year, of which 505 000 are business travelers, where time and convenience are extremely important, says Lowe.

The international per MB price of data is so high because the foreign mobile network determines around 80 percent of the cost for users wanting to roam onto their network. Lowe says the reason execMobile is able to offer such a markedly lower price is due to the various partners they are working with who have negotiated near local rates in various countries. execMobile has built a management platform to control roaming subscribers and offer them cost reduction, control and above all convenience.

“Local data costs will always be cheaper, but that requires buying a SIM card in that country or using WiFi where available. The SIM might require a RICA-equivalent process and will require the user to forfeit their mobile number and modify their device settings. For leisure travelers this is generally not a problem as they have the time to do this. However for an executive who has time constraints, needs secure Internet access on multiple devices (laptop, smartphone, tablet) and may travel to multiple countries (multiple SIMs required), this becomes problematic,” he says.

execMobile’s PocketWifi offers their Global or Giga SIM which is placed into a wireless router to allow up to five devices to be connected to it at one time, eliminating these obstacles and offering convenience and savings.

Lowe says this is particularly important for BlackBerry users as BIS and BES services may not be available with the foreign SIM. However, by connecting the BlackBerry wirelessly to the PocketWifi, all BlackBerry services will continue to work, which is important given that 80 percent of South African corporate run BlackBerry services.

The wireless router is also an important security feature for corporate as their employees don’t have to use Wi-Fi networks in public places and the user has to use a secure password to access the router.

execMobile’s solutions have no monthly contract fees and users are simply billed for any data or data bundles consumed in the period. “Users are only sent a bill for the month in which they use the data card, making it the easiest way to stay connected when travelling overseas,” he says.
