Beyond digitisation: The four vital cornerstones of excellent customer experience

By Prof. Yudhvir Seetharam: Head of Analytics, Insights and Research at FNB Commercial One of the most valuable contributions that data and data analytics have made to modern businesses is the ability that they offer to understand customers, engage meaningfully with them, and offer them the type of positive experience that keeps them coming back for more. But for all the value that data presents in terms of enhancing the customer experience, it also creates a significant risk for the business that doesn’t understand how to apply it to best effect when creating customer experiences. More often than not, that risk is manifested in organisations that suffer a misperception that customer experience (CX) is something that you ‘do’ for your customer. These businesses typically understand CX to b...

What is sure to become mainstream is increasing importance of the enterprise application platform (EAP); value from advanced user expe...

Five digital business trends to keep up with consumers in 2023

It’s hard to think of life without technology. From being able to stream movies on Netflix, asking Alexa to play our favourite songs or just being able to Google the weather, latest soccer scores or answers to life’s most puzzling questions – technology is playing a central role in the way we work, play, and do business. What’s even harder to fathom though, is that most of these platforms only came into existence two decades ago. As Shanaaz Trethewey, chief operating officer for Comcorp South Africa explains, one of the main reasons for this rapid growth is our insatiable desire for instant gratification and feedback. “Digital business is a very real part of our daily lives because we want to work faster, respond to problems faster and adapt to changes faster. The only way to ach...

Threat hunts form part of a proactive cybersecurity strategy

Simeon Tassev, MD and QSA at Galix Ransomware remains one of the top cyber threats facing businesses in South Africa and the world, causing financial, reputational and collateral damage. In addition, there is a growing trend toward cyber extortion, where data encrypted for ransomware purposes is then leaked to the public, or even used against individuals. Backup and recovery, while they remain essential, are no longer sufficient to protect businesses adequately against this threat. A more proactive approach is becoming essential, including threat hunts, which proactively search networks for cyberthreats that may be lurking undetected.   Lucrative targets  The threat of cyberattack is real and growing, and the likelihood of businesses being attacked is increasing daily.

Open source provides the building blocks for future technology innovation

Sumit Kumar Sharma, Enterprise Architect, In2IT Technologies. Open source is by no means a new technology, but it has matured over the past 30 plus years and with the latest wave of digital transformation, its role has become increasingly prominent. In the everyday business sense, it is still a cost-effective option for operating systems, databases, and analytical tools. However, where the nature and benefits of open source are truly being realised is in the Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning spaces. The open, community-driven, and collaborative environment created by open source is the perfect ground for these new-age initiatives, fostering innovation while ensuring that there is no single entity driving the agenda around the technology that will shape our future. Still the...
