Is our online shopping on the Ball?

In South Africa, first world and third world often blend into each other without anyone noticing, especially in the form of technology. One catches a first-world Gautrain or communicates with the rest of the globe via the very latest smartphone or iPad, yet we have potholes on our roads that could engulf a small car and power cuts that occur almost on a weekly basis. So technology is certainly our flag-bearer, but how has this benefited the consumer?

The view of engagement

Unless you've spent the past few months hiding below the fold, you'll be aware that one of the trending topics in digital media is viewability. This is part of a new drive for accountability in the digital sphere, a channel which has spent a good deal of its existence claiming to be able to report on, well, everything. But whilst we quibble about who can see what where for how long, there may be more functional solutions to dealing with this issue.

How tablet applications are simplifying business processes - Realmdigital
How tablet applications are simplifying business processes

Time is money. An age-old saying that has become increasingly literal since digital has taken over. Customers expect immediate responses to emails and feedback (positive or negative) is one tweet away, time is of the essence. The fast-paced nature of business today means that you need to be ahead, just to stay current. This is why businesses are looking at custom application development to make business processes faster and more convenient, and to enable their teams to make quick and informed decisions using their tablets so that they can save time and increase their ROI.

Life in standard definition

Could I live with the slow internet speeds in South Africa? Not a standard interview question, but relevant considering I was about to make the move from London to Johannesburg. My answer was an assured "Yes". I don't know why I lied. Had I answered "no" would I have still got the job? Probably.
