A South African perspective on traditional IT versus digital transformation
Friday, June 28, 2019

South Africa has quite a few very large and very old organisations. They tend to be quite federated, and a cursory glance over their unique histories explains why. Some departments and business units were acquired or merged, some were started as silos and others just evolved along a different vector. Therein lies a problem of companies with long histories: divergence. Customer channels evolve faster than mainframes, payments evolve faster than compliance, and insurance faster than banking...

We’ve heard all about the amazing ways blockchain is going to revolutionise lives and industries – by making supply chain more reliable, banking transactions faster, commodities trading cheaper, and politics more transparent and efficient. There were even questions about why South Africa isn’t using blockchain to safeguard our votes after the recent alleged double-voting controversy during our 2019 general elections. So, if blockchain seemingly has the ability to change everything for the better, why is everyone not using it?...

Reasons to upgrade your legacy systems
Thursday, May 23, 2019
Upgrading your legacy systems: A digital advantage or giant waste of money? For most enterprises, the thought of upgrading a longstanding legacy system is quite daunting. It can be a highly cumbersome process with lots of moving parts to account for, generally leading to an if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it mindset. The process of upgrading is also infamous for often being a costly exercise – causing many business leaders to cling to their deteriorating systems.

Monday, May 20, 2019
Daniel walks confidently down the corridor towards the meeting room booked out for the latest round of bi-annual performance reviews. He is dressed for success, notes in hand and undoubtedly prepared to showcase his achievements over the last six months.

Entelect Challenge

One of the many amazing initiatives run by Entelect is the Entelect Challenge. For a number of years now, the Entelect Challenge has been South Africa’s premier coding competition. The idea was started by our staff who wanted to drive community engagement through a little competition. Little did we know that this challenge would become so huge. Years later, it is a national event with a total prize value over R200k, and still going strong.


The objective of the Entelect Challenge is for entrants to compete against each other by writing an AI program that can creatively and strategically outsmart and out-survive their opponents.


Back at the ranch, a team of Entelect employees run the whole show; developing the creative idea, launching it to the public, developing the player portal and forums, running the play-offs and hosting the final event at rAge. We’re always looking for new contributions and new ideas, so get involved!



We host our own conference called DevDay which is organised, presented and attended by our people. DevDay is a fun day out of the office where the technologist, inventor, hobbyist, engineer or artist in you can come to the fore. The event is part showcase, part science show, part geek club, part makers club; offering a range of lightning talks on cutting-edge technologies as well as a variety of interactive exhibition stands where people can discover the latest creative innovations in technology.
