Technologically speaking, there is a ‘perfect storm’ heading Africa’s way and the opportunity is now for companies to position themselves to leverage off the impact.
This is the view of management at Dac Systems, a national specialist services provider focused on turnkey implementation of leading edge industry solutions.
The Gauteng-based national company believes local companies can truly benefit from a whirlwind of technical value from an increase in innovation, Research & Development, as well as the impact of consumerisation, Big Data analytics, mobility and cloud based services.
In addition to the value of its established social development and corporate social investment (CSI) program – including The Nkomazi Trust and the company’s annual Team Building which is used to build a house for disadvantaged individuals in the rural community of Shongwe – the company’s commercial investment is driven the focus to provide real business value through a Solutions Layers model and its core value offering is based squarely on Microsoft technology.
And it has the credentials to meet stringent, ongoing market requirement for solutions. DAC System has Gold Certified Content Management status and has also acquired Silver Certification for ERP and Project & Portfolio management.
The company’s technical competency covers a number of key business disciplines including consultancy, analysis, Microsoft solution platforms and software development.
Using this framework of technical skills, the company has conceptualized and rolled out a Solutions Layers model focused on productivity, governance and enterprise.
Chris Willemse, CEO, Dac Systems, explains that whilst most technology companies focus on branded third party solutions for delivery skills, Dac approaches clients with the emphasis on how to work efficiently, control effectively and scale seamlessly.
Real applications of genuine solutions
Dac systems has been established to help South African mid-sized to large manufacturers and professional service companies decide on ICT solution requirements.
”We then construct these solutions using Microsoft technology,” says Willemse.
It is a recipe that is working well for the works well for the company and its partners Microsoft and Nintex.
This is because it is positioned at exactly the point where companies now seek to acquire and implement technology, having reached a higher level of maturity and understanding. It is a sense and awareness of solutions that forces decision makers to no longer ‘toy’ with technology, but actually apply it in the very truest sense of the word.
“The time for simply playing with technology is well and truly over. Today, information technology is about using solutions to secure market share, sustain the highest levels of performance and ensure value-add through practical application. This is what we will explain and demonstrate at industry-led events,” says Willemse.
The company works directly with prospective clients through a combination of communication and promotional events.
This is an effective forum that allows industry experts to network and identify key issues that continue to impact on operations going forward the company claims.
