New CSZ Website Under Construction
A new website for the Computer Society of Zimbabwe is under the final stages of construction. It is a culmination of ideas that are meant to reflect the current trends in ICTs and hopefully it will help the organisation serve better.
‘ICT no longer a luxury’
ICT professional and Computer Society of Zimbabwe president Dr Gilford Hapanyengwi believes organisations, regardless of which industry they fall under, need to embrace the technological revolution so that they remain relevant in the face of competition brought about by ICTs’ dynamism.
“Being passionate about IT myself, I feel it is high time organisations invest in ICT new technologies and staff training so that they become ICT conversant at all levels of the organisational structure,” he said.
Dr Hapanyengwi also believes organisations should align their business strategies with the vast ICT options available such as the concept of cloud computing that is currently topical the world over and significantly cuts down on expenses relating to infrastructural set-up.
An ICT Vision for the Future
ICT-Business alignment is key in getting the correct IT solutions to any enterprise. Use of mobile solutions and good utilization of Big-Data can maximize support to such a properly aligned business concern. The cocktail of solutions premised in the correct environment of the Computer Society of Zimbabwe can potentially result in a competitive advantage.
