Enabling Digital Transformation in South Africa
South African companies are increasingly embracing digital transformation strategies to remain competitive in the new digital economy. Digital transformation strategies are typically focussed on improving interaction with customers and partners, reducing operational inefficiencies, lowering costs and unlocking new business opportunities.
According to Cornastone Director, Ansu Sooful, in order to ensure successful digital adoption, companies will require skilled resources who can rapidly deliver key digital innovative solutions. Cornastone is therefore investing in digital skills development
“It is Cornastone’s experience that South Africa currently has a significant shortage of API management skills. As a result, Cornastone has partnered with Apigee (a wholly owned Google company), to develop local competency and skills in API management. By September 2017, Cornastone will have successfully trained and certified over a dozen Apigee resources who can provide professional API Management Services to various public and private sectors,” says Sooful.
Cornastone is currently in discussions with various parties to provide Digital Transformation development centres in South Africa, with the aim of building skills that will benefit in building our country’s digital economy. “If we as a country are unable to build the necessary skills that are required to function in a digital economy, South Africa will remain stagnant in comparison to the rest of the world. Hence the urgency to focus on capacity building in technologies such as API Management, Big Data and Robotic Process Automation that drives the adoption and growth of Digital Transformation in an increasing complicated economic environment,” says Sooful.
