Photo by Andi Aisyah Lamboge, used with permission Three meters above a jungle trail, the mahouts slowly rock and sway atop their elephants — inspecting the mud and thick grass below for signs of wild elephants and traps and snares set by poachers. Masrukin and Edi Sutrisno, mahouts with the Elephant Response Unit (ERU) in Indonesia’s Way Kambas National Park (WKNP), emerged from the bush after a three-hour patrol with their elephants Karnangin and Karnangun. “We love elephants and we don’t want to see … Read More “A decade on, Sumatra’s ‘tusk force’ keeps the peace in famed national park”

By Milan Shetti, CEO Rocket Software If you ask business leaders to name their company’s most valuable asset, most will say data. But while businesses recognize the value of data, few have the processes and tools in place to access its full potential.

A big reason for the proliferation of dark data is the amount of unstructured data within business operations. Research shows that more than 60% of today’s corporate data is unstructured, an… Read More “The Movement to Modernized Content Management Software”

The game-changing role of SMEs in Tanzania’s economy

Published by
The Citizen

Dar es Salaam. Tanzania’s economy is steadily moving away from agriculture in an evolution that is all too common throughout the history of global economies. What is not very clear, however, is the cause it is now charting. Due to some very obvious factors the economy seems stuck in murky waters. The right direction would have been to move more towards the services domain. But that is not exactly what is happening due inadequate infrastructure, both hard and soft. The current, well connected road network has come somewhat too late. Its full potential has been curtailed by the dysfunctional int… Read More “The game-changing role of SMEs in Tanzania’s economy”
