“Driving digital transformation in the public sector, while it has a structured aspect, is one that has to be adapted according to each environment we are dealing with,” says Poppy Tshabalala, Vodacom’s managing executive of Public Enterprise. “There is a basic foundation of needs, but the applications differ from department to department.

“Some examples of where we have made a difference in varying applications include upgrading the Gauteng Education Department’s eAdmission system to be efficient and provide the best user experience. We also have made possible a free e-learning platform portal that provides CAPS-aligned educational content and, this year, in partnership with the Department of Basic Education, rolled out our Virtual Classroom solution into various rural area schools across three provinces.
