IT in Africa’s construction industry (31/08/2014)
An integral component of today’s construction industry is Information Technology (IT). Utilising the data it generates, IT contributes significantly to meeting industry needs and adapts to and supports construction trends. It is in fact one of the core utilities or services that support an infrastructure. This results in tremendous risk to the business should there be any IT downtime. To mitigate downtime, it is necessary to build resilience into IT components and design.
Industry context and trends
How does IT support construction industry trends? “Some of the trends Africa is currently experiencing are increasing industrialisation and urbanisation. Related to this is a rise in energy demands. These trends lead to the need for increased access to, usage and sharing of data which is generated or ‘pulled’ by IT,” says Jaco Cronje, Operations Director for EES Africa (Pty) Ltd, an ISO 9001:2008 certified company.
The challenges of doing business in Africa (30/07/2014)
“Recently released facts and figures regarding industrial, business and economic growth in Africa paint an optimistic and encouraging outlook. However, to see only a buoyant picture would be exceedingly one-sided. Reality and challenges need to be faced and a balanced perspective reached.”
This is according to Jaco Cronje, Operations Director for EES Africa (Pty) Ltd, an ISO 9001:2008 certified company providing management, engineering and auditing services to a range of industries throughout Africa. It specialises in the integration of multiple system infrastructure including ICT, data centres, audio visual, life safety, security and building automation systems.
Cronje discusses the issues involved in doing business in Africa, and outlines the most appropriate steps industry players in the continent should take going forward.
A meaningful 67 minutes at Little Angels (21/07/2014)
Giving much needed attention and care to orphaned babies and young children at Little Angels was “the name of the game” for EES Africa (Pty) Ltd on Nelson Mandela Day on 18 July. Established in 1997, Little Angels in Westlake in the southern suburbs of Cape Town homes and looks after 12 to 18 orphans on a daily basis. It does not receive any government grants.
“While the initial brief was to donate food parcels and clean out the nursery, when we arrived at Little Angels it was clear that far more was needed. The kids craved attention and this is what we gave them,” says Kim Greyling, Executive Personal Assistant to the Managing Director at EES, a management, engineering and auditing services company.
