Engineering the best Information Systems

Enabling informed decisions for successful companies

The best Information Systems can only be created by means of a comprehensive, formal, engineering methodology to which everyone professionally commits.

Not to have a plan, a thoroughly thought through engineered solution, is somewhat naive and irresponsible. The most sophisticated buildings, plants, equipment, vehicles, electronic devices are being engineered today, as a normal business activity. Yet, because computers are seen as an extension to a mere calculator, information systems, the underlying database and technologies are seen as just another layout in a spreadsheet.
Information technology gets owned by the business, especially the financial department. Consequently, the IT department then often develops as a cross breed of job hoppers. Opportunists who see quick money making opportunities, with much less concern for the architectural and quality considerations. Surely there must be a more systematic way of creating high quality, high performance, long lasting systems. Infomet was founded to meet this very challenge.


Infomet has been in existence since 1985, which means 30 years of continued excellence. It has re-engineered itself from a Systems Engineering and Methodology company, into a Business and Information Systems Solution delivery organisation, specifically focusing on the Banking and Financial Services Industry. It has an excellent infrastructure, located at various locations (all) around the world (including Netherlands, Luxembourg and Australia), as well as an extensive asset base of both tangible and intangible assets.

The brand is well known in South Africa, with a well-established reputation of being able to engineer quality solutions for complex problems in the SME and Corporate Markets. Infomet has served over 800 Clients, of which 8 are major Financial Institutions. Infomet focuses on Information Delivery Solutions in specialised sectors, such as Banking, Financial Services, Supply Chain Management and E-Commerce based Systems, as well as Operational Transactioning Systems.

Think Different


Think Different Think Different

There is no point going into the future looking into the rear-view mirror.

The companies which are reshaping the future are the companies who are researching, creating and innovating the future. Holistic thinking, and a fundamental understanding of human needs and behaviour are required. Most legacy systems are a reflection of thinking and technologies of the past. Real innovation only comes when the society as a collaborative unit, can be convinced to buy into technologies and products which require paradigm shifts.

Our Mission

Our Mission
Out of the box information delivery solutions and operational transactioning systems for client centric e-value networks; need cycle fulfilment; wealth management; financial services; insurance; money matters.

Our mission is to provide high quality BI and MI to the company’s internal audience at a strategic, tactical and operational level, as well as all other relevant information to the external audiences in the various specialised sectors. We believe that using data that is complete, clean, integrated, generalised and has high data integrity, should be the basis from which Intelligent Information is provided. We feel that providing this information should be affordable and simple. We believe Information Technology providers have a responsibility to supply companies with better tools and mechanisms to provide Intelligent Information from structured and unstructured data (Applying Data Science Techniques, Incorporation of Big Data, and Information Visualization). Our mission is to provide better insights in company data (structured) and market external data (unstructured) for various specialised sectors. This will enable companies to strategically position themselves better in their respective operating environment.

The Road Map

Fearless into the future.

The main goals for the futures is to transform the companies to a suitable set of companies which are more appropriately equipped for what we need to achieved.

  1. Establish Training programmes in Europe.
  2. Expanding the resource base in Luxembourg, Netherlands, and the rest of Europe.
  3. Investment Capital for new Innovation Programmes.
  4. Research and Development Programmes for New Products.
  5. Acquisition of Component Technologies which can accelerate our Offerings.
  6. Releasing Ukunye as an on-line e-Value Network.

Our Strategy

Our Vision
Since we are new comers on the international scene, it is crucial to understand how we will enable our group.

Driven by highly capable individuals, we are expanding to new regions. We are currently working to strengthen our activities in Netherlands and Luxembourg - and there are plans for expansion to other European regions in the coming years. We are also strongly committed to further development of the market segments: Financial Services, such as Wealth Management, including Investment Management; Asset, Life and Risk Event Insurance; Health Protection and Insurance Schemes as well as the Banking industries. We continuously invest in information innovations.

To promote a sustainable, organic growth of our company, we take the time up front to determine whether we are a good fit for the client - If a new client has not worked with business engineers before, it is imperative that they are open to collaboration, and that they understand what business and information technology can do for their company.
