Digital products are all about reducing margins and scaling the size of your marketplace massively.

The CIO Council of South Africa, of which Microsoft is a founding member, was established in May 2009 as platform for CIOs to discuss common challenges, share knowledge and learn from each other.
It has been formed as an independent Council, governed by a Board of Directors, (lead by Len de Villiers Group CIO at Telkom) who amongst other things determine the themes and topics for discussion during the quarterly meetings. Microsoft, as the sole sponsor, supports the CIO Council with the logistics around the event. Over the years, the CIO Council’s quarterly meetings have gone from strength to strength, and are now attracting between 100 to 120 of South Africa’s leading CIOs.

The IITPSA has a proudly South African heritage of more than half a century of serving the South African body of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) practitioners and professionals. Established in 1957 by a few like-minded 'computer professionals', registered in 1958 as a limited company (then converted to a Section 21 company, now Not-for-Profit Company (NPC)), the IITPSA has grown into a body that is reinventing itself in the twenty first century.
