Introduction to Infomet

In 1985 Infomet started as a Methodology Company effectively providing System Engineering services. The methodology that we developed in the initial stages consisted of a Project Engineering discipline as well as a System Engineering discipline.

Doing Business with Infomet

Doing Business with Infomet

Infomet is a Business and Information Engineering, as well as a System Methodology Organization which provides Business and Software Engineering Services and related Training Programmes.

Combining Subject Matter Experts with domain specific application, such as financial and banking background, Business Engineers with a highly successful methodology, enables Infomet to architect and implement the most extensive, yet simple enterprise-wide solutions.

In the Banking and Financial Services domain, one of Infomet's Offerings is to provide World Class, well engineered, but highly configurable and customisable, Information Delivery Solutions.

Our BBBEE programme is focussed on

  • Creating, incubating, enabling and assisting black owned enterprises
  • Benefiting specifically the local indigenious black enterpreneurial and /or capable individuals
  • Providing logistical resources to build and operate their businesses in a profitibale and sustainable manner. A franchising vehicle is used for this, so we can control the brand and the quality, but still logistically support and mentor these companies.
  • Infomet SA is 100% BBBEE compliant and has a BBBEE rating of 1

The Value of an Information Delivery Solution (IDS)

We will be focusing on is how we provide Information to a Management Level and what those challenges are.
We are using a well understood Classical Management structure which layers Management in terms of Strategic, Tactical and Operational management that has different types of needs.

The IDS could be used to retrieve information from our core systems from which we source data, to determine what type of information is needed and how do we build it for the different needs.

GBM as an e-Business Platform

The emergence of e-Value networks are of paramount importance in the evolution of software applications / information technologies.

Initially people found it hard to describe these platforms that were moved to a central place from where they could be accessed easily by all participants / role-players. So in some cases they were called "portals". But it still did not convey the concept properly.

  • Many implementations retained their Supplier Centric Arrangement which stifled the function of these applications.
  • It remained constrained around the legacy monolithical systems and as a result limited the collaboration ability of the solution.

When the term "cloud-based" Solutions was established, it more correctly conveyed the concept of a Shared Centralised Platform, outside of our direct share, and where everyone to access it from.

When the concept of "Software as Services (SaaS)" evolved from the "bricks and mortar outsourced facilities" to cloud based computing, it made it possible to promote the idea of a software which has multiple entry points, and many different arrangements, depending on the User's particular role.
The concept of e-Value networks then indeed became more promotable.

  • Stakeholder centric interfaces, (For instance: Regulator, Administrator, Supplier, Intermediary, Customer)
  • A sound multi-layered and flexible data store at the core which is formal as well as adaptive.
  • Collaborative capabilities provided to users to work on projects, jobs and documents simultaneously.
  • Dynamically interfaced clusters of capabilities depending on needs satisfaction cycles and capacity.

So, snapping these clusters together to form various coherent e-Value networks for a particular job / assignment. The assembly and configuration of an e-Value network is dynamic, and provides a myriad of opportunities to the work done, much faster, and much more accurately in the business.

The Software Factory Production Line

Whether it is through packages or building it. You have the following: work place, specification work bench, prototyping work bench and the building work bench.
This just creates a convenient mental production line to help pass things on to the work benches to get to the final product.

About Virtual Tours


Virtual Tours

Information architectures require the usage of collaborative networks to ensure that we are able to perform work according to specialities across the world, in other words as a global capability as opposed to a multinational capability.

For this we need an advanced technology infrastructure that is able to connect the organisation specialists in the various regions as well as a connection to the clients. It is particularly important to understand that Infomet interfaces with our clients in one of three manners.

The three Interfacing manners:
  • We provide consultants onsite to provide assistance with the creation of solutions or with the transfer of knowledge about either the methods or the Black-Box packaged solutions.

  • We are able to provide to the client our off the rack products which effectively in some cases can be used as is or it can be configured to the client requirements going through some form of configuration exercise using the client requirements to setup the system.

  • It could be done versus a Software Factory capability where we effectively do a build order, i.a.w we do mass customization. We take the core components of the solutions and offerings we provide and we effectively customize those, which comes down to extending the system for the capabilities the clients would need. Alternatively, extending it with meta data which the client would need to enable the capabilities they require.

In order to have these solution development teams work together, whether it is partly or fully on the client side or on Infomets' side, we need to have a collaboration infrastructure in order to ensure we have seamless execution of the project life cycle as well as at the high level of the program life cycle.

It is of paramount importance that the client understands that they not only have access to the products that may be installed on their side but could also be obtained by subscribing to an e-services model, also known as Software as services which is effectively a cloud based solution that enables them to rapidly configure those capabilities into their own local site specific requirements. Thus, enabling us to service the client much more rapidly and effectively with a set of software and maintenance staff at the backend.



Collaboration Facilities

The collaboration facilities typically used, require us to firstly install from a project engineering perspective, tools in witch we are able to plan, organize, direct and control the projects.

The Software typically used is Mindjet portal where we are able to store documents on the cloud enabling us work in a participating manner. This rapidly accelerates the project and also allows us to derive from the thinking work, activities for different participants/ team members wherein they subsequently have to execute and also attach the deliverables to the core specifications.

The different MindManager installations together with the Mindjet Portal brings that facilitation. Together with this we make use of TeamViewer because when we are working on other documents or demonstrating other capabilities, we require to share/ record those screens using Camtasia. These video recordings/ demonstrations are then stored on the cloud making it instantly available for all the project members or selected user audiences. Together with that we use Skype where it is specifically useful when the user has mobile or tablet devices.

Sandpit Applications


Useful Information

Sandpit applications are available for various GBM based Information Delivery Solutions for the Banking and Insurance industry

These applications can effectively can installed and configured on one of many cloud based platforms so that a potential client may get a hands on experience with these "boxed solutions ". The advantage of this approach is that the cost of readying a useable environment is minimal as well as low cost.

The Sandpit allows the client to experiment and make custom extensions to the solutions on a prototype base. This makes the evaluation and selection of the solution much more tangible and practical.
