Andreas Botha

Vanderbijlpark, Gauteng, South Africa

I am a professional with a successful career spanning over more than 22 years. Industry leading skills finding new ways of making business work and new solutions, designing, deploying, commissioning and managing multi-million rand technical / infrastructure projects for WIMAX, WI-Band, FTTx Passive Optical Network (PON) including RF over Glass (RFoG), Fibre Optic Long Haul, Transport layer, Metro Access Fibre to the Premise and Last 1 Mile solutions in the commercial, residential, industrial and retail sector. Excellent management skills demonstrated over the last 19 years in the ICT sector whilst successfully implementing hundreds of challenging technical projects ranging from small to medium and large multi-million rand projects.

I am also the official Partner on the Ipsos Retail Performance solution for South Africa.

I am currently studying part time through the University of South Africa (UNISA) towards my degree in Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Business Informatics (BCom in BI). Business informatics (BI) or organizational informatics is a discipline combining information technology (IT), informatics and management concepts.

Business Informatics (BI) shows many similarities to the Information Systems (IS), which is a well-established discipline originating from the Northern American hemisphere. However, there are a few major differences that make Business Informatics a unique own discipline:

1. Business Informatics includes Information Technology, like the relevant portions of Applied Computer Science, to a much larger extent than Information Systems does.

2. Business Informatics includes significant construction and implementation oriented elements. I.e. one major focus lies in the development of solutions for business problems rather than the ex post investigation of their impact.
