Blue Jeans Breakfast

6 June 2019

It's been a week since we hosted our latest Blue Jeans Breakfast and we are still feeling overjoyed at the success that it was.

Blue Jeans Breakfasts aim to bring together networking, education, collaboration and creativity. Today’s theme of Digital Transformation was pulled together by internationally acclaimed speaker, Ryan Hogarth, whose compelling discussion left us all feeling inspired to stay at the forefront of new business thinking!

Thank you to the wonderful co-hosts: Global Z-Data, BizSmart and MRBM Consultants, and to our enthusiastic sponsors: Sage, Mimecast, ESET, Maxtec Peripherals, Fortinet and CLOUD29.

We hope to share similar events with you into the future. If you wish to make suggestions or collaborate, please do get in touch.

Voice and Backup Launch

5 June 2019

The CLOUD29 team is proud to have officially launched our new Voice and Backup Solutions!

We believe that our solutions have to be rock solid and reliable, and with Voice this is even more vital. Our team has been working tirelessly over the past 8 months to build and test a Voice Solution and platform that can deliver on that for our customers. Just give us a call on our landline and hear the results for yourselves (spoiler alert: we’ve been on it for the last few months ourselves!)

We have also released our new server and document Backup Solution.  This has always been key to any disaster recovery whether it is ransomware or physical disasters.

We look forward to working with you on increasing your Cloud offerings. Get in touch to find out how you can make the most of these new products.

Inchanga Primary School Visit

23 May 2019

CLOUD29 has been working closely with Zero2Five Trust and Uzwelo Bags to ensure that each year we make improvements for Inchanga Primary School and its learners.

Over the December holidays our teams took a day to spruce up the school environment with fresh coats of paint and new educational tools before the new school year. It was great to go back there today to see their happy faces.

We handed out backpacks that CLOUD29, Global Z-Data, Flamite Pty Ltd, Mentor Shipping Agency and GovCo Solutions sponsored. These uniquely South African backpacks with built-in ponchos are made by Uzwelo Bags, which supports local communities and non-profit organisations.

The excited scholars celebrated and thanked us with songs, dance and high fives. We hope that they feel love and pride for themselves and their learning facilities!

 

Partner Year End Event

28 November 2018

Today we hosted a relaxed get together with our clients at Remo's in Umhlanga.

We couldn't have come this far without all of you, our partners in providing businesses with the simplest solution for Cloud adoption!

Thanks to Kelvin who gave everyone a recap of how far CLOUD29 has come and launched our new look, explaining why it was time for a refresh.

Congratulations to our lucky draw winner for the day, Vanessa from VM Consulting! She wins a full month of free CLOUD29 solutions.

And thank you to the two organisations that we support for all the hard work they do to improve early childhood learning and play in South Africa:

Tanya from Uzwelo Bags gave us a demonstration on their unique backpacks. Made from recycled materials and donated to young scholars, they come filled with stationery and with built in poncho, reducing the number of missed school days due to poor weather.

Julika from Zero2Five Trust gave us a background into the amazing work the organisation does to identify areas of need and improve early childhood development sustainably.

Mimecast Email Management

21 November 2018

Our Cloud Services specialist spoke about data resilience and becoming a data hostage at this morning's Mimecast event, held at Sky Venue.

Along with other IT professionals and thought leaders, Kelvin addressed the importance of cyber resilience to stay ahead of today’s threats. He also looked at our own data hostage event from last year, and shared lessons learned and suggestions for a data resiliency strategy.

Wellness Day

19 October 2018

The CLOUD29 team made the most of our Wellness Day today!

We had some fun getting active and learning about health and fitness with the Discovery Vitality team.

Amongst other things, we learnt that taking a few minutes to walk around and stretch in between our working day is hugely beneficial to one's health and even improves concentration when you get back to work.

M-Files event hosted by our partner, VM Consulting 18 August 2017

Seen here is Vanessa Miller (the VM in VM consulting) demonstrating the power of M-Files Intelligent Information Management.  CLOUD29 has partnered with VM Consulting to bring a unique M-Files offering to South Africa branded as M-Box.  M-Box can integrate with any file system or database including SharePoint and help businesses get value from their documents by intelligently providing access to information on any device, anywhere.  No need to be in the office to securely find update and manage any business information.  M-Box frees your data in a controlled manner so that you are no longer locked into archaic filing systems.  This means you no longer need to know "where" you saved it, you only need to remember "what" it was about.
