Zigurat Global Institute of Technology partners with the Institute for Digital Business Strategy, a digital entrepreneurship organization, which facilitates strategically channeled digital approaches to business challenges.Innovation is happening. The world is changing, and as Jack Ma once said: “We can never ever go back to yesterday.” This sentence represents precisely our mindset. At Zigurat, we keep moving forward, widening our network of strategic partners. At this time, we go beyond the AEC sector, partnering with a company fully dedicated to digital transformation with a mission to close the digital skills need gap for the public sector and private companies in Africa. This collaboration has an exciting framework dictated by the CENTRE FOR 4IR - South Africa. African organizations face the challenges of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. This is a huge opportunity to address the needs for society to overcome challenges of digital disruption with a cutting-edge educational portfolio, like the Internet of Things, Smart Cities, and Blockchain, among others. “The world is changing, we are experiencing a massive change, and we must think globally and act locally. The alliance with international collaborators and local promoters is part of Zigurat´s strategy to stand out as a pioneering online school in the sector of digital transformation,” explains Rodrigo Ferreiro, Corporate Services Manager at Zigurat.The Institute for Digital Business Strategy was founded in 2017 in Cape Town. It was created by digital transformation experts from Africa and the United States. Inspired by digital entrepreneurship, IDBS has a practical and effective approach that powers the exponential growth of digital businesses and skills across the continent. Dr. Albert T. Mubako, CEO at IDBS, is an academic thinker with strong business acumen. He attained a Doctor of Management degree in e-business with distinction. He developed the Digital Business Strategy (DBS) model framework, which facilitates a strategically channeled digital approach to business challenges. Nowadays, IDBS is working on several Digital Business transformation projects across various industries, with the goal of making transformation a success. They address the needs gap for professionals with competitive digital business strategy training provided by our team of distinguished international researchers and consultant advisors in IoT, Big Data, Blockchain, Digital Business Strategy, Smart Cities, IIoT Industry 4.0, and Machine Learning. “We are proud of this partnership. Working with Zigurat will not only provide IDBS with a strategic competitive advantage, within both the South African and African market as a whole, but it will also boost our advisory services and also provide much-needed cutting-edge training infrastructure as well as international expertise, and best practices which are often lacking within these markets. Our vision is to contribute to better business outcomes, promote digital entrepreneurship, and thereby improve the overall quality of life.” Dr. Albert T.
