As an end-to-end ICT services company, we put special emphasis on managing the Data Value Chain.

BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE, BIG DATA ANALYTICS AND DIGITALISATION
Big data analytics helps organisations harness their data and use it to identify new opportunities. That, in turn, leads to smarter business moves, more efficient operations, higher profits and happier clients. The benefits that big data analytics brings to the table, however, are speed and efficiency. Whereas a few years ago a business would have gathered information, run analytics and unearthed information that could be used for future decisions, today that business can identify insights for immediate decisions. The ability to work faster – and stay agile – helps give organisations a competitive edge they didn’t have before.
FRAUD MANAGEMENT SOLUTIONS
Nihka Technology Group partnered with SAS to implement a Fraud Management Framework and Application for a client. The application allows the client to understand fraud and risk behaviour across multiple lines of business makes use of powerful advanced analytics on a single enterprise platform. The platform allows you to score 100 percent of transactions and authorizations in real time to better combat enterprise payments fraud allowing for flexible alerts and case management, in turn saving millions in business revenue.
Threats to sensitive and private information come in many different forms, such as malware and phishing attacks, identity theft and ransomware. To deter attackers and mitigate vulnerabilities at various points, a company must implement multiple security controls in line with the corporate information security strategy.
Nihka Technology Group has ISO 27000-certified consultants on hand that have successfully implemented solutions to help organizations manage the security of assets, such as financial information, intellectual property, employee details or information entrusted by third parties. We also work closely with our alliance partners to implement these standards and associated information security technologies.
BUSINESS CONTINUITY AND DISASTER RECOVERY
In addition to legislative requirements, the need for Business Continuity Management (BCM) is made evident by numerous types of outages that can cripple a business and lead to significant losses in revenue, hamper the delivery of services, cause loss of market share and damage reputations. As defined by the Business Continuity Institute, BCM is a holistic management process that identifies potential impacts that threaten an organization and provides a framework for building resilience and the capability for an effective response that safeguards the interests of its key stakeholders and value creating activities.
Nihka Technology Group is skilled at the development and implementation of disaster recovery and business continuity plans. In fact, we received an ‘Award for Excellence’ from the Eskom Board for the successful implementation of their disaster recovery plans. The project was successfully completed with no downtime to systems.
