T-Systems


As a leading ICT service provider, we know the crucial importance of optimal networks and partnerships.

Critical partners for meeting the highest demands.

On 1st January 2010, T-Systems acquired the ex-parastatal arivia.kom, (sub div Ariel Technologies Botswana.)

This acquisition also made T-Systems South Africa the most prominent IT and ITCO outsourcer in Africa; as a result, Ariel Technologies was uniquely positioned to guarantee its customers one single local contact.

Our legacy partnerships put the company in a unique position to combine Information Technology and Telecommunications into replicable, cost-effective solutions. Today we act independently and continue serving and growing major African business accounts.

Our experience of implementing first world information technology solutions in third world economies throughout Southern Africa continues to stand us in good stead to meet the requirements of our customers and have cemented our position as one of the most successful integrated long-standing service providers.

Our head office is located in Botswana, strategically positioned to serve our SADC and regional clients.

After gaining independence, Ariel Technologies acquired Africas large long-term outsourcing contracts forming a solid foundation for our growth and are proud that our customer base contains some of the most respected companies in Africa from a diverse industry range, including telecommunications, manufacturing, the health care sector, agriculture, public sector and insurance.

Over a decade of independence.

The Africa division continues to build on its legacy, and a significant expansion by gaining new customers, renewing the contacts of existing major customers and growing our business within our existing customer base.

In 2008, T-Systems expanded greatly on this basis, and again on 1st January 2010 with the acquisition of arivia.kom and the Africa contracts that came with the purchase. We continue to optimise processes and provide customers with simplicity and world-class solutions, additional flexibility within their core business activities. The partnerships have made targeted use of industry expertise and cutting edge technology.

Today, thanks to powerhouse partnerships, our services cover the entire spectrum, from integrating new ICT solutions into existing customer systems and implementing and operating desktop systems, hardware and software, data centres and networks, all the way through to telecoms services and solutions for international carriers.

As a result of our independence, we now encompass all levels of the information and communications technology value chain, spanning from ICT infrastructure, distribution and ICT solutions, up to and including business process management and integration.

We thank you for your continued support through the next steps of our exciting journey.

arivia.kom


The impressive milestones reached by Arivia.kom, (arivia.co.za) a public-owned ICT solutions company, as well as its business strategy, focused on transformation.

arivia.kom delivered IT services to a wide range of industries and market sectors through its three key focus areas, namely: infrastructure business, focused business solutions and eVentures.

Datavia

Datavia provided Transnet and its business units with electronic business solutions, Datavia has since embarked on a restructuring process driven by Transnet and processed transformation of the Africa division Ariel Technologies group into a world class IT organization.

One of South Africa`s prominent providers of world-class information technology and related services, a company built on pride. Pride in its local roots; pride in the intellectual wealth, and pride in its contribution to this country`s future through responsible corporate citizenship.

Datavia has invested more than R1 million in a diverse range of external projects. These include:

Establishing a complete computer ICT network laboratory at Vela School, Umtata. Facilitated by the school`s outreach Programme with two neighbouring schools, the laboratory also provides a much-needed computer resource in the area.

Datavia however aims to continue its involvement in the project until both the company and the school are confident that the facility is operating satisfactorily. This will include installing internet connectivity, enrolment in the Schools Net Programme and complete training of the laboratory`s operators.



ITS Eskom



The ITS partner merged and acquired from the South African utility Eskom, after it had executed the separation of its ICT division, in line with the South African Governments restructuring plan. and had a focus on the African continent and business abroad.

They followed an opportunistic strategy about the international arena, including the USA, Europe and Brazil. They won large contracts to drive the group's profitability and support long-term growth.

The group's subdivision worked with group partners to demystify the IT sector for disadvantaged communities to create successful participation. Another priority area was the packaging of their niche capability, and jointly developed a traffic power management package that has been successfully used on the Major national roads in South Africa.
