Or­a­cle to run lo­cal busi­ness, W/Africa from new La­gos of­fice

Daily Trust - - IT WORLD - From Nahimah Ajikanle Nu­rudeen, La­gos

Or­a­cle has said that it busi­ness ac­tiv­i­ties in Nige­ria and other West African states will be co-or­di­nated ýfrom its newly opened La­gos of­fice.

The new of­fice which was of­fi­cially opened is on Vic­to­ria Is­land, La­gos ýhouses Or­a­cle’s sales, hu­man re­sources, and op­er­a­tional func­tions to ser­vice the West African re­gion.

Or­a­cle Nige­ria’s coun­try leader, Ade­bayo Sanni said Or­a­cle’s rev­enue in the re­gion has grown over the years, along with its part­ner ecosys­tem that has in­creased in size by 30% over the past three years.

He said Or­a­cle cus­tomers are rapidly adopt­ing mo­bile, so­cial and cloud tech­nolo­gies to trans­form their busi­nesses.

Sanni said, “they are de­liv­er­ing ser­vices that weren’t pos­si­ble be­fore and they are find­ing very smart ways to bring their prod­ucts to mar­ket. Through­out Africa we have seen re­mark­able in­no­va­tion and trans­for­ma­tion.

“With cloud

adop­tion Sam­sung Elec­tron­ics has launched the latest ad­di­tion to its Gal­axy Note fam­ily, the Gal­axy Note 5, in Nige­ria.

Blend­ing an ad­vanced S-Pen with su­pe­rior view­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, the Gal­axy Note 5 pro­vides users with a unique and pow­er­ful mo­bile ex­pe­ri­ence.

Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, Sam­sung Elec­tron­ics West Africa, Mr. Brovo Kim said Sam­sung con­tin­ues to im­prove the Note se­ries with ev­ery new ver­sion.

Ac­cord­ing to him, crafted with me­tal and glass, the Gal­axy Note 5 boasts a beau­ti­ful screen, suite of help­ful pro­duc­tiv­ity apps to ac­com­pany its su­per pre­cise sty­lus, the S-Pen. In ad­di­tion, it is the first de­vice to come loaded with 4GB of RAM.

He said the de­vice also fea­tures a curved back­side, per­fect for the edges of your palm.

Kim said, “Smart­phones have be­come so cen­tral to our lives; so has the de­mand for larger screens. The first gal­axy rates ac­cel­er­at­ing, this abil­ity be­comes even more preva­lent. Soft­ware as a Ser­vice (SaaS) is be­com­ing in­grained in the sec­tor’s con­scious­ness and Plat­form as a Ser­vice (PaaS) is also gain­ing trac­tion. IT sys­tems have to be fast and sim­ple to be able to be ag­ile.” Note was a break­through, not just for Sam­sung but for the en­tire in­dus­try. Big­ger screens have gone from nice-to­have to a must-have and the dis­play once called a gim­mick is now the norm. With the Note 5, our cus­tomers can achieve more with their de­vices, quickly write down ideas and notes at meet­ings or wher­ever in­spi­ra­tion strikes, video con­fer­enc­ing with col­leagues or fam­ily de­liv­er­ing an im­mer­sive view­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.”

Em­manouil Rev­matas, Di­rec­tor, Hand Held Prod­ucts, Sam­sung Elec­tron­ics West Africa, said the com­pany is aware that cus­tomers de­sire a big bril­liant dis­play but not a bulky de­vice, caus­ing them to choose be­tween screen size and porta­bil­ity.

“At Sam­sung, we did not think that was a choice our cus­tomers had to make. With the Note 5, they have a big dis­play in a slim­mer pack­age. The Note 5 is an in­tu­itive and ef­fi­cient de­vice; it is the Gal­axy re-de­fined, reimagined and re-de­signed,” Rev­matas stated.
