JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - Feb. 5, 2014 - PRLog -- Pamoja, the Cloud services business unit of Pan-African ICT enabler SEACOM, is hosting a strategic breakfast session on 6 March 2014 at Microsoft Head Office in Bryanston, Johannesburg, to help businesses embrace Cloud computing and show the industry that Cloud is now “business-ready”.

The company, established in 2011 is a provider of wholesale Cloud computing services via telecommunication companies, SI’s, ISPs and other service providers in Africa.

Pamoja is focused on a wider market, incorporating the fast-growing Small-to-medium Enterprise (SME) segment, and leverages off SEACOM’s infrastructure, exposure to partnerships and Africa’s growing mobile and Internet market to entrench its services model.

As part of its strategy to build Cloud services on the continent, Pamoja will host an interactive and informative session with resellers and stakeholders to delve into the dynamics of Cloud services in today’s operation.

The event will cover a range of topics including collaboration & unified messaging tools, consumer security, HR & payroll, CRM, ERP, security as well as business continuity.

“Our question to businesses today is ‘are you ready to embrace the Cloud?’” says Albie Bester, General Manager at Pamoja. “There is a lot to consider for decision makers and our role is to help clear up misperception about the Cloud and advise businesses on what we believe to be the best approach. We will emphasise the role of Cloud solutions providers and why there is merit in considering working with one.”

The breakfast session will feature keynote presentations that will provide insight into Microsoft’s SMB focus on the role Cloud will play in enabling businesses through the Microsoft solution and Cloud ISV strategy.

Included on the agenda is ISO standards, governance, risk, compliance, sales team strategy and CRM.

According to Bester, now is the time to invest in the Cloud and strategically adopt this resource. “We see small business adoption of SaaS as inevitable and imminent”, says Bester.

The Company makes reference to IDC’s cloud computing study that over the 2013–2017 forecast period, public IT Cloud services will have a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 23.5%, five times that of the IT industry as a whole.

Bester adds that Cloud computing is introducing a paradigm shift in the way that organisations will access IT and business services.
