Business software firm SAP is increasingly eyeing Morocco as a key African delivery centre owing to the country’s proximity to Europe.

This is according to SAP Africa chief executive officer Pfungwa Serima, speaking to ITWeb Africa on the sidelines of the SAPPHIRE NOW 2014 business software conference in Orlando, Florida this week.

Last month, SAP announced that Moroccan city Casablanca is the new headquarters for the French African SAP territory, which is a merging of West and Central African French-speaking countries and the French speaking Maghreb nations. Serima, in turn, oversees this territory and he told ITWeb Africa that SAP employs around 20 people in Morocco.

“We expect that number to grow, in particular when we start looking at Morocco as an alternative delivery centre for both Africa as well as Europe, so it will become a nearshore destination for SAP,” Serima told ITWeb Africa.

“It’s one of a few of what we call leading countries that we’re looking at,” Serima told ITWeb Africa.

Earlier this year, SAP officials told ITWeb Africa that the company is looking to certify data centre partners in Africa for the first time.

Why do we punish the victims of hacking?

2017-09-21 09:00:00 +0100

Hacks occur every 39 seconds, with 95% of them targeting governments, retailers and the tech industry. If the hackers are caught, they'll face prison time under the Computer Misuse Act. More often than not, the businesses who are victims of those attacks expose themselves to punishment of their own. The laws that determine the duty of protection owed to businesses and their customers is both vague and broad, making them question just how much protection...

Tech is for girls... and always has been!

2017-09-18 10:00:00 +0100

Today, it's hard to deny that the IT and tech industry is a male-dominated field. Women earn only 28%[1] of computer science degrees, while the quit rate for women in the high tech industry is 41%[2], twice as high as it is for men. These two statistics would suggest that perhaps women aren't just discouraged from entering the tech field, but may find it a challenging environment to work in both in terms of treatment and pay.
