I got to Chad yesterday for an up coming event where I have to talk to youths on how to use the internet to find jobs and this is where I found out

Software As A Service (SAAS) in Africa

 I hold this belief to be self-evident and unarguably true that Software As A Service (SAAS) based offerings will have an incredible potential to engulf the African market as it opens up unlimited horizons for tech startups to sprawl and find lucrative openings.
Africans who desire to find lucrative inroads into the wealth of possibilities that an internet company offers are short-circuited by lack of money to pay engineers or the skills to build it themselves. interestingly, SAAS based offerings present unique options whereupon those who want to start an online company can actualise their dream with minimal tech or financial constraints by simply installing the software and  running their business

Apparently, an array of internet startups in Africa did no more than download and install open source solutions and then built momentum from there. Cases in point include (But are not limited to) nairaland which used simple machine forum, irokotv which started up with nollywoodlove and found stamina through the use of wordpress and youtube, jobberman which took its first strides with jobberbase and so on and so forth.

 SAAS based offerings have an enormous range of possibilities. Prominent among these possibilities is the fact that it can empower the next startups that are underway to simply click and install and they’ll have their technology sorted out all in the cloud while other pressing business demands and day-to-day operations in sales and marketing are attended to with a 100% focus.

 Come to think of it, the familiar trend which makes waves in Africa runs about as shallow as this: A cross-section of Job-sites are hosted on or take the form of wordpress installs. Wouldn’t it be a phenomenal idea if someone offered handy solutions for anyone to start an online company with neither engineering nor money and run on a pay-as-you-go basis?

Just in case you are wondering whether SAAS can fill this engineering and capital void, hang your worries on the shelf and watch SAAS based platforms supply this missing link in Africa.

To further confirm this views, the sort of tech-based companies that make money in Africa via direct technology sales like Huawei do nothing more than provide platforms and then get on to the backstage and push the buttons behind the scenes. That is about as good as it gets, and when all is said and done, there is little else that the general public knows about them in Africa.

Having reviewed the massive benefits of SAAS based solutions, the only logical thing I can do is to throw my full weight behind such initiatives and marshal it to fruition.

September 2015 and beyond

I will be getting back to my rants as a way to spread my crazy mind to the world from the 13th of September 2015 on-wards. Its been crazy 10yrs of writing codes, trying to sell and trying to define a career in a market that really wasn't  ready for what I am producing.

I turn 30 on the date above and I will put a lot more effort in monetizing solid software systems that I have learned to build or manage teams that build in the past 10yrs.

I will step on toes and I will get a bit more bold and hide my real shy self in my house.. this is the internet we can rant what ever we feel like without any remorse...

Moving forward in 2011...

My blog has been silent in months or maybe years... I have been hustling at alot of levels and my new nick name became I AM A HUSTLER ;)... inspired by rap music ;).
Ok this is why I haven't blogged in a while:

1) working on a Human Resource technology hub in the making for Africans world wide and maybe other countries... There is just no limit to this platform I am killing myself on... coding, business ideas, testing, research, growing mad, getting sad, crying, laughing... and watching Google Analytics ;).

2) AfroVisioN Group my foundation is profitable but I have been battling with new staff month over month I have had like 4 failed hirers where I train guys only to realise they cant be up to what I want them and hence cant use them. There is a big problem with education in Africa... the level at which they leave university is like 2yrs behind world class work force for the most intelligent of them all. I have been having a hard time trying to get them up to pare and the frustration wont let me do any other thing like updating my blog

3) I have been having alot of stress and fatigue from step 1 and 2 above to the level where I have had to involve into gaming PLAY STATION FIFA 10 has become a new friend and at times I just sit at home reading news and thinking hard on what next to do. but the HR issues I faced in my business led me to developing the HR platform great right ;).

Finally I will like to thank God for all he has shown me and now mom is also happy and brothers, sisters and family are closer as I get to spend less time working and more time with them especially this past month(May 2011) when my hemophilia brother got me scared as he had appendicitis and that needs operation but his blood condition wont allow an operation, I got so scared for the first time in my life for my kid brother and he is the only one I got. Some how I think I should be successful all the time so if I am not really making great inroads in my current business(AfroVisioN Group-> engineering the way towards more profit), I should make great inroads into my family and also my new venture but all of that is going to change soon from the next quater I will have enough knowledge to employ the best once again and retain them and move fiercely with great outputs... Amen
