Through digital transformation, the cidb (Construction Industry Development Board) is enabling sustainable growth and ongoing innovation for South Africa’s public sector construction industry.
Cidb is one of the first in the public sector to embrace the cloud and technologies completely because they work with the full suite and want to be a showcase for other public sector entities in South Africa. Using the complete Microsoft suite through Mint the cidb has proved to be able to save costs as well as be more effective in their processes. Cidb’s objective was to become a high performing organisation through the use of technology. It was identified that turnaround times were an issue concerning internal processes as well as system downtime. For cidb to realise its objective it had to start the journey of becoming digitally transformative.
Mint Group and Microsoft were chosen as cidb’s cloud transformation partners, showcasing how the public sector in South Africa can embrace technology innovation.
