As options for creating and building digital platforms are expanding and becoming more complex, most enterprises seemingly want to either build or become one. A business platform strategy is an approach to entering a market, offering products and services to it and at the same time offering that channel to competitors looking to reach the same market. ...

Is industry becoming irrelevant to digital success?
Tuesday, October 27, 2020
Supplied by entelect2013 Administrator from entelect2013
The majority of present-day digital and innovation projects typically involve digitising products and services to combine or reach across traditional sectors. Enterprises are changing (shortening) traditional customer journeys or creating new digital-only products which have no obvious spot on the value chain. There is a theme here: industry irrelevance. The lines are increasingly blurred, and we’re seeing industries learning from each other, as technology components mature and techniques are normalised in a way that can be applied the same way to banking, agriculture, retail and media...

Untangling ambiguity with design sprints
Monday, October 19, 2020

There are few things as powerful as getting the right people in the same room to unpack a problem. A seemingly simple recipe for problem-solving – a design sprint – does exactly that. This five-day problem-solving technique is becoming a go-to for companies who want to test ideas, develop a new product, or overcome a pressing business concern...

Unpacking hypothesis-driven development
Tuesday, September 29, 2020
Supplied by Administrator from entelect2013
If you ever had to take science classes in university or high school, you’d be familiar with the concept of educated guesses. Before an experiment, you were likely asked to come up with an assumption that could be tested – a scientific hypothesis. The basic idea of a hypothesis is that there is no pre-determined outcome – and is usually shrouded in uncertainty. ...

PaaS has reignited industry need for custom software
Wednesday, September 9, 2020
Supplied by entelect2013 Administrator from entelect2013
The early days of software tooling for businesses were quite unlike what we’re used to now. Decades ago, practically everything was custom-built because it needed to be. Packaged solutions weren’t on the market, and this custom technology is set at the core of most systems today and still performing well. ...

Where to start: Managing the pressure to modernise legacy systems
Tuesday, August 25, 2020
Supplied by entelect2013 Administrator from entelect2013
Most large enterprise executives have been feeling the pressure to upgrade legacy systems due to risks, costs, missing functionality, technical debt, and the growing necessity for digital offerings in every industry. In a complex landscape with bulky IT architectures that have been assembled over decades, how do you know what to modernise and which route to take? Legacy systems are often complex, affect multiple business units, rely on niche skills, and it’s difficult to know where to start...

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.
