TPG Africa takes project management training to the next level

By admin, 13 lutego, 2014, No Comment

Project and portfolio management (PPM) specialist TPG Africa has signed a deal with global training provider Bridgit Sdn Bhd to offer internationally-accredited, simulation-based project management training for the first time in South Africa under the TPG Africa umbrella.

TPG Africa CEO Pieter Meyer says the new training will not only allow local project managers to obtain internationally recognised certifications that will allow them to work anywhere in the world, but provide practical real-world based training that can be applied almost immediately.

“The great thing about simulation-based training is that it confronts project managers with real situations and problems that arise in projects,” says Meyer. “They immediately see the consequences of the decisions they make, as well as being able to track all the variables like costs, schedule and quality. Just like flight simulators train pilots, project simulators train project managers.”

Bridgit Africa Group President Kevin in’t Veld says there is a clear move in the South African project management sector towards certifications as companies look to ensure that project managers working for them can justify their experience and knowledge. For compliance reasons, the clients of a project often require that project managers be certified.

“While project management frameworks like the PMI® PRINCE2 or APMP show you how to manage projects on paper, they don’t fully prepare you for the challenge of running projects in the real world,” says In’t Veld. “Our approach provides hands-on training by people who have managed serious projects, have been in the horrid spaces in projects themselves, and deliver coalface expertise.”

Meyer estimates that there are more than one million certified project managers in the world, a figure that grows by around 15% every year. However, to build the project management sector in South Africa, he says the focus of training needs to be on career and competency development, and not just churning out certifications.

“To train well-rounded project managers takes a combination of classroom-based training, simulation, plus ongoing after-work sessions with the client. It’s the blend of technology, theory and practical training that makes the difference,” says Meyer.

Bridgit Africa is the first training company in Africa to have covered the new knowledge areas and process groups of the PMI® PMBOK (Project Management Body of Knowledge) Fifth Edition by simulation method and has a 100% pass record on this new certification.

In’t Veld has no doubt that simulation methods are the future of project management training, as they provide accelerated learning potential that is not possible using theory-based training alone.

“There’s always a gap between the theory and the real world – and simulation-based training bridges that gap by customising simulations for specific industries and projects,” says In’t Veld. “The only place you can really learn to drive is in the real world, testing real-world workflow and methodologies.”

 

Vox Telecom to extend high-speed internet and Apple TV promotion, slashes prices

By admin, 13 lutego, 2014, No Comment

Vox Telecom will be giving away an Apple TV to customers that sign up for their 75GB and above Fat Pipe ADSL package. Fat Pipe is a premium ADSL product that offers high-quality bandwidth at less than R3,50 per GB. As an added benefit, customers also receive free rollover of data, making Fat Pipe a compelling alternative to uncapped products.

This offer had previously only been available to customers signing up for a 100GB per month or higher package upon signing a 24-month contract. “In addition, we’ve decided to change the contract terms to a month-to-month basis, allowing our customers greater flexibility,” says Clayton Timcke, Head of Marketing for Vox Telecom. “Customers have the option of cancelling the contract at any time, although they will be required to pay the balance of the cost of the Apple TV in the event of an exit, as ownership only transfers to the subscriber after 24 months.”

Fat Pipe is a fast, unshaped ADSL offering the best user experience to customers at a low price. All unused data rolls over on a month-to-month base, allowing customers to accumulate large volumes of data for uses such as online gaming, video streaming or file sharing. When the service launched at the end of 2013, it was priced at less than R4 per GB, although Timcke has confirmed that Vox Telecom has since lowered the price even further. “Vox Telecom is committed to providing customers with an internet service that is not only of the highest calibre in the country, but also one of the most affordable,” says Timcke. “Fat Pipe is definitely the product that will give you the most value for money in terms of quality and price.”

Customers that sign up for a contract of 75GBs or more per month will receive an Apple TV that can be used a personal media hub. “Fat Pipe is the perfect tool to enjoy Apple TV with, as it is well-suited to functionalities such as streaming video or audio content to HDTV.”

To take advantage of the promotion, customers can sign up online at www.voxtelecom.co.za.

Performance Management – an essential tool for the mid-sized business

By admin, 13 lutego, 2014, No Comment

By David McWilliam, Director at Cortell Corporate Performance Management

Mid-sized businesses are faced with the same challenges and priorities as their large enterprise counterparts. These include the need to better understand customer behaviour and business performance in order to grow the business and drive profitability in a highly competitive environment. In addition, the midmarket is typically also faced with several further challenges – tight budgets, manual processes and reporting that may have become out-dated, lack of transparency and insight, and many more.

Analytics tools such as Business Intelligence (BI) and Performance Management (PM), once seen as the sole domain of the large enterprise, have now become critical to the mid-sized business to help them address these challenges. However, with mid-sized businesses, successfully implementing these analytics tools is of utmost importance as budgetary constraints do not allow for investments that fail to add value. Partnering with the right service provider is thus essential in unlocking the value of analytics tools, to help these mid-sized businesses drive sustainable growth, profitability and competitiveness.

One of the challenges that mid-sized companies face is keeping a finger on the pulse of various aspects of the business. When a small business transitions to a mid-sized organisation due to growth, many of the processes and reporting functions become outdated. Furthermore, these functions are not able to deliver transparency as work, volumes and the geographic footprint increase. Many of these processes and reporting functions are typically manually driven, which may suffice for a small sized business, but will hinder visibility into the performance of various areas of the business as it expands.

Fact-driven decision making in all areas of business has become vital, not only due to the nature and pace of the business market, but also as a result of a new generation of business people in the information age, who require readily available insight at their fingertips. In addition, studies consistently prove that organisations with the ability to gain insight from data, in other words those organisations that invest in business analytics and are able to make faster, more accurate decisions as a result, far outperform those that do not. From customer behaviour and customer requirements to performance and the drivers of profit, along with more accurate budgeting and forecasting, analytics tools have become crucial.

However, for the mid-sized business, large capital investments such as those required for analytics and PM tools are a major decision, and a poorly thought out strategy in regard to this investment could potentially damage the business. In order to drive maximum value from this investment, mid-sized businesses are increasingly looking to partner with a value-added supplier that can ensure returns can be realised. Working with such a partner will assist mid-sized businesses to firstly determine their business objectives around analytical tools, to understand what information they require, and then apply the most appropriate solution to meet this requirement. The right partner will ensure that any solution meets the needs of the business first and foremost, to ensure the investment into technology is sound and driven to add value.

A correctly implemented and maintained analytics solution can aid in many areas, removing time consuming manual processes and automating functions, driving more accurate decisions and minimising risk. This also means that people resources can be more effectively deployed, removed from time consuming tasks that add little value and reassigned to areas that can drive business growth.

However, information analytics tools should always be driven first and foremost by business objectives. An expert service provider with benchmarking capabilities will help mid-sized businesses to ascertain what will work in their scenario, and what will not. The service provider will have the skills and knowledge required to maximise Return On Investment (ROI), and will assist mid-sized businesses with creating a roadmap that enables these organisations to measure progress against their objectives over time.

Lorge wins Sage awards for 19th consecutive year

By admin, 12 lutego, 2014, No Comment

Sage 300 ERP (formerly Accpac), Sage CRM and Sage ERP X3 technology and solutions provider Lorge, has celebrated its 28th year in business by once again being awarded Sage Premier Partner status, winning the Peresoft award for product sales in South Africa and the Pacific Technology Solutions South African dealer of the year award.

“This is the 19th consecutive year that Lorge has been recognised with major awards,” said Lorge Chief Executive Officer Derek Porter. “Our client base is expanding and our ability to provide innovative high technology, fit-for-purpose Sage financial and related business management software solutions has reached levels that we are extremely proud of.

“To still be receiving industry accolades after 28 years in business with a continuously expanding client base I believe indicates that our sales, support and training functions are soundly meeting the needs of the companies that come to us for business management software solutions, recommendations, implementations and upgrades.”

Porter and his team were presented with the awards, based on business achievements during 2013, at the Sage Insights Partner conference held at the Champagne Sports Resort in the Drakensberg.

The Pacific Technology Solutions dealer of the year award recognised Lorge’s consistently high ranking in global accounting software module sales for Pacific Technology Solutions, which has ranked Lorge first three times and second once in the past four years.

Pacific Technology Solutions business development manager Jamie Steele said Lorge’s sales performance was highly rated and confirmed that it was the highest selling Pacific Technology Solutions reseller world-wide in 2013. “The very low number of support cases Lorge sends us confirms that they have a sizable support team and hold extensive expertise in our solutions.”

Headquartered in Midrand, Lorge provides and supports Sage 300 ERP, Sage CRM, Sage ERP X3 and Business Intelligence solutions, as well as complementary products including Technisoft Service Manager, Pacific Workflow and Peresoft Cashbook, within a wide range of commercial and industrial enterprises throughout Africa.

Porter said Lorge operates in a wide range of business sectors including healthcare, engineering and infrastructure, mining, manufacturing, packaging, distribution and many others.

“Our specialist knowledge, proven methodology and the comprehensive experience and expertise developed over the past 28 years provide a solid foundation for us to offer commercial and industrial organisations with financial and business software solutions that meet the specific requirements of most business sectors,” said Porter.

IT administration – change is as good as a holiday

By admin, 11 lutego, 2014, No Comment

Cloud computing is changing IT administration roles for the better. Adapt or face redundancy, believes Mimecast’s Heino Gevers.

To suggest that the adoption of cloud computing at an enterprise level has fundamentally changed the manner in which corporate entities do business would be an understatement.

A few years ago it would have been tough to predict just how significant a paradigm shift this new approach would usher in. Although analysts and users alike have been largely able to forecast and adapt to the technological considerations associated with the cloud – both from an off premise and operational costing perspective, this new archetype has gradually begun to alter the job descriptions of those closest to the transformation.

IT systems administrators and support engineers – professionals trained and tasked with the management of technical infrastructure, have most keenly felt the impact.

As business services gradually move into hosted cloud environments these individuals are evolving to occupy new roles that require risk assessment, business acumen and an operational understanding that often extends beyond the reach of a traditional technical tertiary education.

For some, this challenge presents an opportunity to evolve as business services move towards a new pattern of operation. In response many IT administrators and engineers are now seeking to gain new skills via distance learning or internal courses that will equip them for the future.

Others regard this evolution as a threat to the status quo – a platform for transformation that could potentially leave them wanting. These individuals are hesitant to embrace change, choosing to grasp at conventional models in the hope that things will remain the same.

This attitude drifts further away from the reality of the South African business reality as each day passes.

The simple truth is that as cloud services mature so Chief Information Officers will no longer have the capacity to assess risk, identify granular challenges and manage Service Level Agreements. Their mandate will become increasingly focused on operational capacity and legal compliance.

These figures will require support from within the organisation. As on premise infrastructure is gradually replaced by Software as a Service (SaaS) models so technical staff must step in to fill the gaps, or face redundancy.

In this way, IT systems administrators and engineers have an opportunity to either promote cloud adoption within the business by learning new skills, or defy it by fostering an on premise agenda. These decisions could have a very tangible impact on the wellbeing of a corporate entity down the line.

With this in mind it is vital that technically orientated professionals begin to skill up in preparation – both for their personal wellbeing and for the good of the business.

Cloud has shown itself to be an unstoppable force that is gradually moving across the business landscape. The cost benefits associated with this model are simply to great to ignore. Remember – change is as good as a holiday, but don’t let the holiday last too long.

Dell unlocks new era for open networking, decouples hardware and software

By admin, 6 lutego, 2014, No Comment
  • Dell’s open networking vision disrupts traditional model, enables rapid innovation by providing cloud providers, financial and Web 2.0 customers a choice of network operating system 
  • Dell signs reseller agreement with Cumulus Networks as the first member of a broader ecosystem to create open networking solutions
  • Dell adds award-winning fixed-configuration systems with global scale, logistics, and Enterprise-class services

Dell has demonstrated game-changing support for open networking by becoming the first global end-to-end technology company to provide customers including cloud providers and Web 2.0 companies a choice of third-party operating systems, tailoring networks for their specific application needs. In this effort, Dell announced a re-seller agreement with Cumulus Networks – maker of the first Linux operating system for bare-metal networking devices – to support a new disaggregated networking model for its fixed-configuration switches.

New Era for Open Networking – Disaggregated Networking Model

Dell’s vision of the new data center networking model is an open ecosystem in which customers can choose among various industry-standard networking gear, network applications and network operating systems to meet their business needs.

“For the past 20 years, data center networks were a three-tier proprietary hierarchy built for pre-virtualized, client-server implementations using chassis-based switches.” says Brad Pulford, Dell enterprise solutions group director.

New dynamics brought on by software-defined networking, virtual machine mobility, shifting networking patterns from North-South to East-West, cloud computing, resource pooling and the need for server-like automation led Dell to help pioneer an Ethernet fabric model using fixed-form factor switches. Industry analysts at Gartner cite:

  • Ethernet fabric is best-positioned to address the demands of simplifying and automating physical switch networks encountered by network professionals in the immediate future.
  • Newer small form factor core devices can enable network managers to reduce capital costs by 30 percent to 70 percent, and save 30 percent or more on operations expenses, compared with chassis-based switches.

The disaggregated networking model is a further step in Dell innovation on the software side. Benefits and value of this networking model include:

  • Best-of-breed networking for workloads, application and other networking needs including orchestration, automation and monitoring;
  • Consistent compute and networking with a common deployment and operational model; and,
  • Leverage of open source data center solutions with rapid standards-based innovation.

Dell and Cumulus Networks Help Businesses Embrace Open Networking

Dell announced a reseller agreement with Cumulus Networks as its first partner in an ecosystem to fill a critical gap in realizing the true promise of the software-defined data center. “Dell will begin offering Cumulus Linux network OS as an option for its Dell Networking S6000 and S4810 top-of-rack switches.” adds Pulford.

Dell and Cumulus Networks create the following customer benefits:

  • Fast – High-capacity fabrics, unprecedented price-performance, rapid innovation;
  • Easy – Simplified network automation, consistent tools for network and compute, flexible solutions; and,
  • Affordable – helping lower operational and capital expenditures, breaking free from vendor lock-in, joining a large ecosystem of Linux applications.

Dell provides the support of a trusted brand including:

  • Award-winning Ethernet switches with modern, fixed-form factor architectures;
  • Complete data center solution with common acquisition, deployment and operational model from single vendor for server, storage and networking – global distribution and fulfillment;
  • Global services with a single point of contact and accountability; and,
  • Networking expertise in pre- and post-sales scenarios including planning, deployment and support services

Supporting Quotes

  • “This is a great example of innovation coming from the new Dell. Networking is an industry crying out for disruption. We’ve done this before with PCs and servers, putting us in the best position to offer a choice of network operating systems,” said Tom Burns, vice president and general manager, Dell Networking. “Networks are like human minds – they work better when open.”
  • “Dell is fundamentally changing the nature of the networking business, and this partnership with Cumulus Networks represents a definitive step towards disaggregating hardware and software,” said JR Rivers, co-founder and CEO of Cumulus Networks. “In this new open, multi-vendor ecosystem that’s becoming all the more prevalent, the customer finally gets to choose exactly the components they need to build the software-defined datacenter of the future without having to worry about vendor lock-in.”
  • “This is a market development that we suspected might happen,” said Brad Casemore, Research Director, Datacenter Networks, IDC. “Cloud-service providers and large-enterprise customers are thoroughly evaluating alternatives to their traditional datacenter network infrastructure. Dell has chosen to position itself as a strong proponent of disaggregation of network hardware and software, while Cumulus Networks has struck a partnership with a major vendor to gain favorable exposure in more customer accounts. This announcement is emblematic of an eventful period in datacenter networking, and such alliances will become increasingly important as developments such as network disaggregation reconfigure industry ecosystems.”

Dell expects to begin offering switches with Cumulus Linux network OS in first quarter of its fiscal year in 2014.

Apple iPads to come increasingly under attack by Android devices?

By admin, 5 lutego, 2014, No Comment

Apple iPads, still by far the top seller in the international tablet ‘war’, will come under increasing attack from cheaper Android-run tablets – but it remains off a low base, said Christopher Riley, CEO of laptop and accessories retailer, The Notebook Company.

“Tablet sales, according to IDC, reached the 221 million mark in 2013, up a whopping 53% on the previous year. Although the analyst is talking about a drop in tablet sales this year, whatever happens with the ultimate sales figures, you can be sure competition between the top players will continue to be severe.”

He said he expects Android-driven devices to gain “significant ground from a percentage point of view” against iPads this year – and next year. “One of the compelling reasons for this, is the fact that Android tablets are markedly cheaper. Apple is also trying to attack the Chinese market. If they manage to make inroads there they might not lose too much ground, percentage-wise.”

“But,” said Riley, “China is a really tough market and Apple doesn’t really have a devout following there like it has in other parts of the world. In China, consumers are more likely to eschew the iPad in favour of cheaper units.”

Some of the latest figures show that the Microsoft Surface tablet and the Samsung tablet have gained market share during 2013- although Apple iPads still hold 78% of the market, down from 81% in 2012.

The data -compiled by Chitika from ad impressions in North America in January this year – show that Microsoft reported a more than doubling of revenue with the Surface, to $893 million. It now holds 1.7% in this market, while Samsung commands 6,1% and Google 1.9%.

Amazon holds a substantial 7.7% with its kindle, with Asus coming in at 0.6% and Acer 0.5%. Blackberry holds a troubling 0.2 %.
