Africa is not immune to the global economic downturn and its negative economic effects. Embracing technology might sound like an unlikely solution. At a time when we all need to ‘tighten our belts’, but if done correctly, your IT division can become your No.1 asset in difficult times.

Time is money:

This old adage rings true, and technology should be the primary priority when starting to identify areas where you can improve efficiency and ultimately profitability. As a business owner or company executive you need to keep your fingers on the pulse of every aspect of your organisation. The volume of reports and data you need to analyse to achieve this is a time consuming task.

AccTech recently became the first organisation in the world to develop a Business Intelligence application using Microsoft Silverlight technology. A360 delivers critical business data, measured against predefined KPI’s to your desktop. It is a real-time business intelligence application that provides a 360 degree view of your organisation.

What is Microsoft Silverlight and how is it affecting the world around me?
Microsoft Silverlight is a cross-browser, cross-platform plug-in for the delivery of the next generation of media experiences and rich interactive applications for the web. This may sound technical, so the best way of showing you Microsoft Silverlight’s application is via one of the biggest political moments of our era. During the inauguration of U.S.A. President Barack Obama, CNN and Microsoft asked the more than 100,000 attendees to send them their photos of the ceremony. Within 1 hour 250,000 photos was delivered and with Microsoft Silverlight and Photosynth, this was the result:
