Network Platforms qualifies as EPP registrar

By admin, 27 czerwca, 2013, No Comment

Network Platforms, a South African provider of IT solutions, has become an Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP) registrar for the co.za domain name space. The company has proven that its system is technically capable of running and managing these all-important registrations.

Established in 2003, Network Platforms has served as the premier service provider to clients for over a decade. Its value proposition lies in solutions that address requirements related to ADSL connectivity, Diginet; Fibre, Microwave and 3G connectivity, IT management, VPN management, infrastructure monitoring, IP PBX/ VoIP and cloud services.

EPP provides a simpler means of dealing with domain administration. UniForum is the Registry managing the South African based .co.za domain names. The regulatory body has been using a proprietary ‘Legacy’ system, which requires a parsing of mailings.

Although effective, it is time consuming, potentially prone to errors, and outdated in comparison to EPP. UniForum has adopted the EPP system to ease the process of dealing with co.za domains and their Registrars. Executive management at Network Platforms say EPP has emerged as an accepted international standard of communication between Registries and Registrars.

“Network Platforms is now in the position to make immediate changes to client domains, be it registration / transfer or modification of domains in the co.za domain name space,” explains Bradley Love, MD of Network Platforms.

The accreditation adds significant value to the company’s service offering within the ultra-competitive area of domain administration. Love says the pursuit of this status has required substantial focus, over a long period of time, and commitment from all stakeholders. “It has been a long time coming, but we are very pleased to have reached this milestone in our development and the relevance of our service to the market,” he adds.

SA financial services sector should heed £3M JP Morgan Chase fine

By admin, 26 czerwca, 2013, No Comment

The South African financial services industry must take heed of JP Morgan Chase’s £3.08 million fine from UK financial regulator, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), for failing to keep accurate records that proved sound advice was provided to clients.

This is according to Richard Buttle, Chief Financial Officer of JSE-listed Metrofile Holdings Limited, who says local financial services providers (FSPs) that fail to comply with the Financial Advisory and Intermediary Services Act (FAIS) could face similar punitive penalties. “All FSPs are required under FAIS to ensure that an accurate record of all services rendered or advice offered is securely stored for up to five years, or risk hefty fines or possible closure by the Financial Services Board (FSB).

“The FAIS Act stipulates that every FSP and financial intermediary must have the appropriate procedures in place to record and securely store all verbal and written communication regarding any financial services or advice provided to a client.”

“Keeping an accurate record of advice is critical for all FSPs and financial intermediaries in South Africa. Should a client decide in the future that the advice offered to them wasn’t appropriate or that they were not fully aware of the risks involved, the intermediary must be able to show through accurate record keeping that they explained all the options to the client.”

He says accurate record keeping is not just about compliance, however, but also enables the business to operate at optimum efficiency levels, whilst also protecting confidential and sensitive information.

Buttle says all records also need to be kept in a secure environment that ensures easy access for a client, or the Registrar, on request. “The Registrar has the right to review the records at any time. While the records do not need to be kept on site, they must be kept in a location where they are readily available for inspection within seven days of the Registrar’s request.”

According to the Act, a record is defined as: a register, file, electronic record or written comment of information about a transaction or event. Any communication must be reduced to written or printed format, therefore any telephonic communication must be recorded and kept in an appropriate electronic or voice-logged format which can, if required by the Registrar, be easily reduced to written or printed form.

Buttle says all FSPs and financial intermediaries must, unless exempted by the Registrar, manage and store the following records for a minimum period of five years: records of advice given to clients; premature cancellations of transactions or financial products; complaints received, as well as the status of complaint resolution; records of the continued compliance with the authorisation requirements of FAIS; cases of non-compliance and the related reasons; accounting records; financial statements showing the financial position of the business on the last day of the financial year; and the results of operations and cash flow information for that period.

“It is essential for all FSPs or financial intermediaries who do not have effective records management systems in place to consult a reputable records management business that can help identity the most suitable system for their business needs not only to ensure compliance with FAIS but to also make the management of the business more efficient and effective,” concludes Buttle.

 

 

DHL Gets Proactive with Pvision

By admin, 26 czerwca, 2013, No Comment

Pvision and Shellard Media have concluded an implementation at DHL’s Johannesburg headquarters which has fundamentally altered the manner in which the logistics giant reacts to potential challenges.

Local display technology provider, PVision, has formally concluded an agreement with Shellard Media and global logistics giant DHL to equip a newly launched Johannesburg based Quality Control Centre with state of the art equipment intended to considerably enhance internal operations.

The implementation, which comprises of eight ultra-narrow bezel 46” LCD displays in a 4X2 configuration, acts as the central nervous system for a revolutionary internal management platform. This enables DHL to maintain a consistent overview of global shipping routes, dispatch floors, developing weather patterns, natural disasters and international news relating to key DHL accounts.

Significantly, the DHL Quality Control Centre is among the first of its kind in Southern Africa and has fundamentally altered the manner in which the company’s local arm reacts to potential challenges, says Donnaven Periasamy – DHL Sub Saharan Africa Quality Control Centre Manager.

“The DHL SSA Quality Control Centre has enabled us to respond more proactively. Naturally, the video wall implemented by Shellard Media and Pvision is our first point of contact. Using the eight adjoined displays at our disposal we are able to immediately notice if a shipment is running late, has failed to reach its destination or has been delayed due to an unforeseen circumstance”.

“Our internal systems are supported by a live video feed of the Johannesburg dispatch floor and news monitoring on all major networks to detect natural disasters or political developments. The benefit to both DHL and its customers has been significant” concludes Periasamy.

According to Imtiyaz Ranjamia, DHL SSA It Services Manager, the implementation process was swift and problem-free.

“Both Shellard Media and Pvision moved quickly to ensure that the DHL Quality Control Centre was equipped with the necessary technology by the agreed upon deadline. We have yet to experience any issues with the displays or supporting equipment and are extremely satisfied with the high levels of service these companies offered”.

Pvision director, David Ross, believes that the DHL Quality Control Centre is a primary example of what can be achieved when large organisations embrace new technologies.

“We are extremely proud to have worked with both Shellard Media and DHL on this implementation. It’s a fantastic illustration of how display technology can completely revolutionise challenging working environments”.

 

Samsung takes digital signage to the next level

By admin, 26 czerwca, 2013, No Comment

Designed to simplify digital signage within your business

Samsung Electronics South Africa has announced the Samsung Smart Signage Platform (SSSP) that incorporates a media player as a system-on-chip on the same board as the display chipset, eliminating the need to have external media players for customised content on large format displays. To date, Samsung is the only display manufacturer to offer this kind of “smart” signage platform.

Traditionally, customers in the retail, hospitality and banking industries required external media players for their displays in order to create customised content for consumers at the various touch points inside the store or branch environment. The system-on-chip functionality eliminates this requirement for an external PC and streamlines the delivery of more impactful messages to customers in real-time irrespective of the display being viewed.

“This minimises equipment and installation costs for our customers and enables them to better manage operational costs. Content management is also greatly simplified through the Samsung MagicInfo S authoring solution that supports a variety of formats,” says Mike van Lier, Business Leader for IT Solutions at Samsung Electronics South Africa.

Additionally, Samsung MagicInfo S offers an open source development kit which supports JavaScript, HTML5 and Flash to enable partners to create their own customised applications.

Having a system-on-chip media player results in fewer cables being required, reduces the network point of failure, reduces ongoing operational costs and simplifies the installation process.

“With this innovative solution, Samsung is providing its customers with the flexibility their environments require and offers more control when deploying and managing customised digital content needed, as needed on multiple platforms. The panels comes standard with a three year warranty which include parts and labour and has an expected life span of 50 000 hours calculated on the assumption that the displays will run anything from 12 to 24 hours a day,” he says.

Van Lier comments that there is growing demand for large format displays and solutions for digital signage in the corporate, retail, and entertainment environments. “Digital signage is emerging rapidly as a viable communication tool and provides customers with a simple and dynamic way to deploy and manage digital signage networks on a single chip.”

“The Samsung Smart Signage Platform really provides customers across industries with the best of all worlds. SSSP is an integrated platform for digital signage that eliminates the need for external media players and streamlines the deployment process, saving time and money for integrators and businesses alike,” concludes van Lier.

Samsung Smart Signage Platform system-on-chip large format displays are currently available in sizes ranging from 32 – 75 inches.

Social business software for Africa

By admin, 26 czerwca, 2013, No Comment

Shatters adoption barriers with market-leading smart phone support

The use of social software in a business context is already an unstoppable force, but it might have bypassed Africa altogether if it weren’t for the mobile vision of South African social business software (SBS) vendor WyseTalk.

Social revolution
Research firm IDC pegs the annual revenue growth of social business software (SBS) at 40%, and predicts it will reach $4.5 billion in 2016. WyseTalk CEO Gysbert Kappers says companies use it in all areas of the business to enhance communication, productivity and ‘ideation’, either as standalone applications or by embedding social elements including collaboration, information sharing and communication into enterprise software. “Unlike other communications or collaborating platforms, SBS tools lend themselves to mass participation, real-time communication, openness and constructive engagement within qualified communities,” Kappers comments.

He adds that companies that communicate well tend to increase workplace efficiencies. “In addition, they will co-create better, more nuanced ideas at a faster rate – ultimately a source of competitive advantage.”

Mobile support
However, until recently these benefits have not been available to African companies, he continues. And where they have they’ve come at an extraordinary cost with no local support. Some of these social business platforms only support desktop and laptop device formats, hampering adoption in emerging markets where smartphones are king. Mindful of the difficulties this presents in the African market, WyseTalk has turned the market on its head by making its platform available as a mobile app, downloadable from the major smart phone platforms.

At the time of writing the company offered free download versions of its software for Apple iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Blackberry 10 and Windows mobile.

Kappers explains that in addition to a highly functional browser system and WyseTalk’s mobile apps they also have a desktop app. The pared-down desktop version of the app consists solely of a notifier of new messages and other activity, prompting desktop-active users to respond on their phone (or via desktop browser). “It is one unified platform on which to respond in real time, wherever you are,” adds Kappers.

Mobile continent
WyseTalk’s mobile strategy is a decisive first strike in African markets, where wired Internet and PC penetration is remarkably low at 4.1% and 6.4% of households respectively, but mobile phone subscriptions are more than 53.1% according to the ITU (2011 figures). In the same year mobile broadband subscriptions stood at 8.5% on the continent – almost twice the number of fixed broadband subscriptions.

For now, varying estimates for African smartphone penetration average out at around 10%. When taken in combination with the low Internet penetration on the continent, this does not equate to an enormous market opportunity yet, but at about 40% growth, the maths is sounding pretty attractive. Add to that recent advances in international connectivity, and the sky is the limit, says Kappers.

Mobile world
He says global browser activity indicates that mobility is on the rise everywhere. With the exception of the Americas, mobile Internet connections doubled in all regions between 2011 and 2012. “It’s a globally-applicable value proposition, and there are opportunities in the developed world, Middle East and elsewhere, but our objective is to gain a strong foothold in Africa first,” he notes.

Getting it
Kappers says fears of social elements disrupting the work environment are unfounded. “The corporate conversation happens at any rate – informally around the water cooler, in boardroom meetings and in project teams. SBS merely harnesses the chatter, gets rid of the inefficiencies and costs of other channels, and structures conversations into accessible groups and areas of interest.” He says it is crucial for companies to attune themselves to the objectives of SBS software and to strategically direct adoption in consultation with WyseTalk. “The bottom line is that social software has enormous viral potential, and executives must steer the ship, or the conversation will get away from them.”

On the users’ side, some familiarity with Facebook-like features of sharing, updates, feeds and personal profiles is all that’s needed.

Open innovation
SBS is ideal for giving employees a safe and familiar place to listen, participate and contribute. “The openness of a social environment guarantees visibility to all ideas. Because it is open and democratic, ideas will attract fair consideration, and when it passes scrutiny will earn people personal reward for contributing to the common good – the company’s success. It is a good day when that sort of competitive advantage is available to Africa,” concludes Kappers.

 

T-Systems secures R67.5 million DWA contract

By admin, 26 czerwca, 2013, No Comment

T-Systems in South Africa has been awarded a SAP Application Management and Modernisation (AMM) contract by the Department of Water Affairs worth R67.5 million.

The three-year agreement, awarded following a tender process, continues T-Systems’ relationship with the DWA. The ICT provider was responsible for the implementation of a Revenue Stabilisation programme in 2010 to improve business systems and processes.

Comments Gert Schoonbee, Managing Director of T-Systems in South Africa: “We feel privileged to be yet again appointed a strategic ICT partner of the Department of Water Affairs. Our AMM methodology and implementation will undoubtedly enable the Department of Water Affairs to exploit the benefits of its SAP environment to in turn meet its core business objectives.

“The department of Water Affairs plays a strategic role in the sustainability and growth of South Africa. It is as a fantastic opportunity to form any part of this process through our services.”

Since 2010, T-Systems has gained a thorough understanding of the DWA’s key ICT requirements and subsequent operations. The successful rollout of the Revenue Stabilisation programme offered a direct revenue value to the department and undoubtedly the AMM implementation will offer important returns.

T-Systems AMM services will, for example, offer the following important benefits:

  • A solution designed specifically to address the DWA’s objectives, capitalising on an in-depth knowledge of its ICT environment and business process and objectives;
  • Increased business satisfaction as a result of higher quality of service;
  • Continuous exchange of ideas for enhancement and modernisation and;
  • Predictable service delivery through defined governance structure.

T-System in South Africa’s value was demonstrated through its enterprise development initiative, assisting DWA to create a Centre of Excellence (CoE) to develop their ability to support its AMM infrastructure after the term of the contract.

T-Systems’ has identified a number of Employment Equity (EE) graduates who will be skilled in the AMM support arena through a combination of onsite and formal training. This initiative will not only create a pool of skills resources for the Department to use in future, but also facilitate sustainable development by introducing newly skilled resources into the market.

Additional information:

The AMM solution – based on T-Systems’ AMbition methodology – will among others ensure the DWA’s current SAP 4.7 environment is maintained and continuously improved while allowing for the smooth transitions to ECC 6.0, SAP’s latest enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution.

The AMbition AMM methodology is built on T-Systems’ many years of experience in operating applications for companies of all sizes. It falls in line with ITIL V3 and uses the same methods, processes and tools around the world for analysis, design and planning – suitable for SAP applications, standard applications, and custom software.

For example, the Ambition AMM Maturity Benchmark benchmarks the strengths, weaknesses and maturity of a company’s current application management systems.

 

Looking through the window on Windows 8

By admin, 26 czerwca, 2013, No Comment

By Rudi Greyling, Chief Technology Officer and Innovation Director, Avanade South Africa

With the clamour surrounding the Windows 8 launch settled down, the question on many business decision makers’ lips is how this innovative new operating system can be harnessed for their organisation. Historically, many companies have often waited a year or two before upgrading to a new version of Windows, however, this was before the mobile explosion hit us. Mobility has already changed the way in which businesses operate, but with the release of Windows 8 – and its focus on combing the mobile and desktop computing experience – this process of mobility redesigning the workplace will only accelerate.

We recently conducted a global survey of nearly 600 C-level executives and IT decision-makers in 19 countries to find out how the workforce is changing in the new era of mobility. More than half (54 percent) report the majority of their employees use smartphones for basic work tasks such as reading email, viewing online documents and managing calendar invitations. More than six in ten companies (61 percent) reported that the majority of their employees use personal computing devices in the workplace, with one third saying that employees now use tablets for simple work related tasks. Notably, companies are seeing this shift and turning it into an advantage, 20 percent of companies have changed four or more business processes to take advantage of the increased productivity and business opportunities offered by mobility.

Tech savvy employees have high expectations regarding how they should be able to work, demanding swift and simple access to systems and data from anywhere, anytime and on any device. But how can companies ensure they are deploying Windows 8 for the right reasons? Answering just a few simple questions can shed light into the process and ensure the decisions are made for the right reasons.

1. How do I ensure Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is secure?
As BYOD continues to transform business, the biggest challenge many companies face with their customers and employees is how to securely support new devices entering the workplace. How, for example, can they take business applications and transfer these onto their employees’ mobile devices, such as iPads or BlackBerrys? Aside from offering much better manageability and infrastructure, Windows 8 solves key security problems by bringing enterprise strength security measures and built-in anti-virus software. Other safety applications, provided by Windows 8, include Bitlocker, the new UEFI secure replacement for BIOS boot loaders, and the VPN alternative DirectAccess.

2. How do I manage my mobile workforce?
Until now, we at Avanade have seen that most companies use third party mobile device management solutions, but Windows 8 is changing all of this. Windows 8 fully supports mobile device management. It allows companies to lock the device down, bring it under control and facilitate the deployment of enterprise-wide applications.

3. How do I build user-friendly enterprise apps?
Once you have received your new Windows 8 device, the first thing you will want to do is make the most of the applications. It’s crucial, therefore, to use experienced User Experience (UX) designers and information architects who are able to work out the process flow with you, and create wireframes and mock-ups that deliver an integrated, connected application.

4. How do I simplify SharePoint integration?
Another big challenge for businesses today is connecting different mobile devices to SharePoint. To simplify this process, Windows 8 comes with all software and tools needed to integrate with SharePoint, ensuring efficient and easy access. You’ll also receive the benefits of offline document editing through MS Office.
5. How do I regain control over employee devices?

Regaining control is ultimately about getting more of a handle on which devices your employees are using. The first step is implementing mobile device management. After that, if you can influence your employee’s choice of platforms by offering great line of business (LOB) applications, this will in turn influence your employees’ choice when buying a consumer device of their own.

6. How do I encourage mobile Customer Relationship Management (CRM) adoption?
Deploying CRM onto mobile devices via Windows 8 allows your sales team in the field to be more productive and efficient, improving their data accuracy. This means your sales team has the ability to be out and about with customers capturing data, and selling more products by harnessing greater insight from this data. And this is something we are seeing more and more. As businesses redesign work processes which align with mobility and integrate more complex functionality onto mobile devices, they are seeing a positive impact on sales, thanks to greater understanding and productivity.

7. How do I deliver a smoother Virtual Desktop Infrastructure experience?
If you have introduced VDI into your business then you already have the benefits of delivering applications and desktop operating systems through virtual infrastructure. Windows 8 offers multi-touch support, so you can deliver powerful, modern Windows UI applications through a VDI infrastructure.

8. How do I make my enterprise truly mobile?
Windows 8 facilitates a wide choice of devices, some with keyboards, some with flip screens and some with digitizer pens all running on the same Windows 8 platform giving the user the same experience. But that alone does not make an enterprise truly mobile. It is only by combining all the elements I have touched on above; security, manageability, CRM etc. that you can fully push your business to the very forefront of the mobility surge. You have to redesign the way in which your business runs.

Windows 8 has created new options with which companies can empower their employees to do their jobs in the way they want to and provide consumers the experience they want, when they want it and on any device. The potential benefits are clear; the onus is now on the companies to conduct the proper evaluation of their resources and change policy and protocol to allow for a more flexible way of working.

By admin, 26 czerwca, 2013, No Comment

Only vendor awarded Best Virtualisation support for extending application-aware visibility into virtual computing and application environments

Riverbed Technology, the application performance company, announced that it has been named a “Value Leader” by the Enterprise Management Associates report for Application-Aware Network Performance Management. The Riverbed Performance Management solution achieved the highest aggregate score in total ANPM functionality for its richly integrated, scalable and proactive application and network performance monitoring, analysis and troubleshooting solutions.

The EMA Radar for Application-Aware Network Performance Management report focuses on assessing and analysing the landscape of ANPM solutions available to the marketplace today. The report looks specifically at core capabilities that network engineers, managers and operators need in order to recognise, characterise, troubleshoot and communicate application performance as they transit the network.

EMA’s report singled out Riverbed with “Best Virtualisation Support” recognition for its solution’s support of virtual computing and virtualised application environments. Cited as “leading edge” by EMA, a key differentiator for the Riverbed solution is the ability to maintain visibility despite highly virtualised environments. According to the report, competing ANPM offerings require both additional features and significant configuration to provide the same level of visibility into virtualised compute environments and architectures that Riverbed Performance Management solutions deliver natively.

“The span of capabilities within the Riverbed Performance Management solution is among the best in the ANPM sector,” said Jim Frey, vice president of research, EMA. “Riverbed has put itself at the leading edge and offers one of the stronger analytics engines in the industry with real-time views for advanced performance monitoring. It’s exciting to see the progress Riverbed has made as the company continues to integrate and advance the performance management suite with Cascade and OPNET solutions.”

“Maintaining availability to critical applications while delivering peak network performance is a challenge our customers and channel partners face on a daily basis. As the number of applications increases and virtualisation expands across the environment, the need for an integrated, efficient and value-based solution becomes even more urgent. The combination that Riverbed Performance Management brings with the Cascade and OPNET product lines allows us to deliver that single solution for monitoring, troubleshooting and actually fixing the application and network performance problems,” said Paul Brady, senior vice president and general manager, Riverbed Performance Management business unit at Riverbed. “We’re thrilled to be recognised by EMA for our innovation and leadership in the Application-Aware Network Performance Management market and our industry-leading virtualisation support. This momentum will continue to support both enterprise and the mid-market customers and expand our channel partner success.”

Riverbed Performance Management solutions, which include the Cascade application-aware network performance management (NPM) and OPNET application performance management (APM) product portfolios, deliver a unique combination of end-user experience monitoring, transaction tracing, deep component monitoring, and IT infrastructure/network management. With the acquisition of OPNET, Riverbed is now able to offer customers performance management solutions that diagnose and cure both application and network issues. These solutions help application and network teams identify the problem, deliver actionable insight for solving the issue and maximise the performance, availability and productivity of critical applications.

Teraco move signals new growth phase for Network Platforms

By admin, 26 czerwca, 2013, No Comment

National IT solutions provider Network Platforms has completed the move of its entire datacentre infrastructure from its old environment to its new location, Teraco, in Isando.

Teraco offers neutral data centres and co-location facilities throughout the country. The environment provides comprehensive services to govern telecommunications, cloud or hosting requirements.

The company has reinforced its offering to market and the value of its expertise and product.

As an example, Network Platforms has utilised the strength of this connectivity and centralised infrastructure within the Teraco environment to secure a substantial reduction in cost and reliability – and being able to deliver customised solutions at very short notice.

“This is because we have control of our infrastructure. Our primary objective was to connect to international and local carriers. We had to do this before we could start delivering other services. We had a choice of providers because all the carriers have a presence in Teraco. So, once pricing and contracts were agreed upon, we were able to rollout our full compliment of services,” says Bradley Love, MD of Network Platforms.

“In the old environment we were reliant on the connectivity supplied by the datacentre. As Teraco is a natural vendor datacentre, we have been able to build our infrastructure with the required connectivity redundancies,” explains Love.

“We have multiple local and international connectivity routes and all uncontended. So if one route goes down we have the same capacities on international and local on the alternatives,” he adds.

Network Platforms has SAT3 and Seacom International connectivity and the intention is to implement across all international carriers. From its base in Teraco, Network Platforms offers several services including co-location, local and international connectivity, ADSL, Static IP ADSL solutions hosting and various Cloud Services.

It also offers Hosted Exchange, off-site backups, Hosted PBX, Virtual hosting, Disaster Recovery, SharePoint and Lync. Love continues with an emphasis of another major advantage to this infrastructure move; that being connected with other ISPs that form part of the NAP Africa peering community.

NAP Africa is a neutral, layer 2 IX (Internet eXchange) point located in each Teraco data centre facility. The ability to peer to exchange high volumes of traffic ensures a reduction of costs of local bandwidth, reduction of latency and improved performance by avoiding traffic bottlenecks.
