Business Connexion is South Africa’s largest provider of information and communications technology services.
The group’s mission is to provide simple, content-rich and affordable knowledge solutions – which we define as Connective Intelligence. This is the intelligence required to take existing connections and make them simpler, richer and ultimately more rewarding. This means understanding the intricate mechanisms of our customers’ businesses, making each aspect more effective.
Business Connexion’s vision is to ignite the power of Connective Intelligence – which forms the basis of our strategy and approach to business.
The group employs 4 305 (at 31 August 2010) people deployed throughout the southern African region, with a growing footprint on the remainder of the continent and in the United Kingdom.
The group’s history is rooted in a series of mergers and acquisitions that stretches over a thirty year span and has resulted in the creation of Africa’s first black-empowered ICT giant.
The group comprises six divisions:
• Services division
• Technology division
• Innovation division
• International division
• Investment division, and
• Corporate office
The Services division delivers business consulting services and managed services ranging from communications, through data centre management up to information security services. Skilled specialists focus on delivering solutions such as on-demand computing, virtualisation and “anything as a service” to the customer base.
The Technology division relies on in-depth knowledge and strong alliances with vendors to deliver core infrastructure solutions to both group customers and the Services division.
The Innovation division captures and capitalises on the company’s intellectual property which is expected to be a key revenue driver into the future.
These three divisions are intricately linked to one another to offer holistic information and communications technology (ICT) solutions to the group’s customer base. The International division, by combining the skills set and solution offering of all three divisions, is able to drive the group’s market share on the African continent and further abroad.
The newly formed Investment division focuses on key strategic initiatives to drive the group’s growth by partnering with other market leaders to enhance the group’s depth and breadth of solution offerings.
The Corporate office forms the administrative foundation of the group providing transactional support and specialist skills in marketing and communications, finance, human resources, commercial services and corporate information technology.
