Kenyan firm among Africa's technology awards winners

06 December 2013, 17:17

Johannesburg - A Kenyan up-and-coming firm and two South African mining firms emerged the biggest winners at the just-concluded SAP Africa's 2013 Quality Awards.

In the large enterprise category, AngloGold Ashanti was recognized for the implementation of mobile and cloud-based solutions across six different countries across the world.

Mining firm, Royal Bafokeng walked away with the honours in the medium enterprise category for a massive implementation of SAP solutions across the organisation as part of as strategic initiative to divest from its
parent company, Anglo Platinum, and create its own technology platform.

SMB Antarc was named gold winner in the small enterprise category for its successful implementation of SAP Business One on HANA that made what the judges called "an immediate business impact."

Rajendra Dhaniraj, Quality Director for Africa at SAP Africa, said the Quality Awards celebrate customers who have excelled in the planning and execution of their SAP software implementations and who embrace SAP's
Quality Principles in a way that realises real business value and delivers significant benefits to their organizations.

"In the five years since we introduced the Quality Awards, we have seen a steady increase in the quality and professionalism of project management and there is really not much to choose between this year's Gold, Silver, and Bronze Award winners," he added.

The African Awards were presented in a variety of categories including cloud, mobility and HANA technologies, which are SAP's core focus areas and help it deliver on its promise to provide speed, accessibility and
adaptability to businesses in Africa.
