04. April 2023 Print this page 3 Minutes reading time (582 words)

As an African entrepreneur living in the diaspora for over two decades, it has always been a goal of mine to come back to Africa as a champion of two things that are very important to me: technology and the youth population in Africa. Africa is a continent brimming with untapped potential, and I firmly believe that empowering the youth through technology can drive economic growth and development. However, one major challenge faced by IT graduates in Africa is the difficulty in finding entry-level IT jobs. In this article, we will explore how private enterprise can make a difference by creating a compelling business case for outside companies to invest in outsourcing IT support to Africa. Additionally, we will discuss how a groundbreaking platform called Okovango ERP Software, co-founded by three entrepreneurs of African origin, can revolutionize SMEs across the continent while simultaneously addressing the job scarcity for IT graduates. 

Africa boasts a burgeoning population of IT graduates each year. These skilled individuals are equipped with the knowledge and expertise to contribute significantly to the growth of businesses, both locally and internationally. However, despite their qualifications, many IT graduates struggle to secure suitable job opportunities in their field. This mismatch between talent and employment hampers the potential for Africa to leverage its human capital effectively.

Private enterprise can play a pivotal role in changing this narrative. By creating a business case for other companies to outsource their IT support to Africa, private enterprises can help bridge the gap between IT graduates and employment opportunities. Outsourcing IT support to Africa not only presents a cost-effective solution for companies but also provides a unique opportunity to tap into the immense talent pool available on the continent.

Enter Okovango ERP Software – a game-changing platform specifically designed to empower SMEs across Africa. Okovango ERP Software offers a comprehensive suite of tools and functionalities to streamline business operations, enhance productivity, and drive growth. This innovative platform, co-founded by three visionary entrepreneurs of African origin, is poised to revolutionize the way SMEs operate and compete in the market.

One crucial aspect of Okovango ERP Software is its commitment to fostering economic development within Africa. By basing its customer support operations on the continent, Okovango ERP Software creates a wealth of job opportunities for IT graduates. The establishment of customer support centers across Africa translates into hundreds of much-needed employment positions, providing a lifeline for talented individuals who have long struggled to find suitable employment in their field.

The significance of this cannot be overstated. By centralizing customer support in Africa, Okovango ERP Software not only ensures efficient and effective assistance for its users but also drives economic empowerment by creating sustainable employment opportunities. This approach aligns perfectly with the broader vision of utilizing technology to empower the youth population in Africa and accelerate economic growth.

With Okovango ERP Software leading the charge in providing comprehensive and innovative solutions for SMEs, Africa is poised to become a technology hub capable of competing on a global scale. By attracting outside companies to outsource their IT support to Africa, we can tap into the continent's immense potential, creating a win-win situation for businesses and IT graduates alike.
