The importance of digital transformation at SATBinderrr addressed a strong focus on digital excellence at the conference. As part of this strategy, presenters were encouraged to introduce digital components applied in their fields of expertise into their presentations. Naidu Consulting sponsored the SATBinderrr Digital Excellence Award and so difficult was it to choose a winner that three awards were presented.

“Congratulations to all presenters on excellent and well-thought-out presentations.  The calibre of presentations and content was world class,” said Naidu Consulting Managing Director Mahendren Manicum. “I commend the presenters on adopting digitalisation models, which was evident in some form in all presentations. It just proves that digitalisation doesn’t necessarily have to only mean digital twinning, scanning using software such as Navis Works and Revit, but also building on metadata Information and modelling it to produce digital representations such as Master Curves, using macros in Excel to find simple efficient solutions.

“This award was tough to adjudicate, but to be fair I decided to reward three presenters who I believe captured digitalisation outstandingly. They were Fergusson Paulse of the Roads Authority of Namibia, Johan Gerber from Zutari, and Babalwa Nzuza of Naidu Consulting.” Each received a trophy and R5 000.
