Africa's Digital Transformation requires more Homegrown Solutions (Part 1)

Current Global enterprise Solutions don't meet the unique needs of African businesses.

Digital Transformation in Africa offers an exciting opportunity but to reach the success requires homegrown enterprise solutions that reflect context and nuances the market needs of Africa has a continent including mobile integrations, a variety of regulatory and legal requirements across the continent and the lack of a uniform data goverance framework.

Digital trasformation in Africa is underway and it's creating opportunities for fundamental change across all economic sectors. While Sub-saharan Africa is still behind the rest of the world in terms of internet peneration which Kawil also known as Kawil Group Holding Limited is tackling too and closing the gap quickly but that is a discussion of another day.

Since the early 2000's, the population of internet users in Africa has grown to a tenfold as compared to a threefold increase in the rest of the world according to the lnternational Monetary Fund. From financial services, power and agriculture and many other sectors. Digital technology is being leveraged to deliver greater access and usher in the ''future of everything'' on the African continent and globally which is part of our mission at Latim Group

African businesses and people are grappling with this new reality. At it's core in everything, digital transformation fundamentally changes everything for businesses from their internal processes to the ways they engage with customers and peoples livehoods.

I strongly believe taking on digital transformation is at the centre of business success moving your company forward. under the hood, digital transformation is powered by enterprise solutions such as customer data platforms (CDP) that aggregate customer data from mutiple to build a single comprehensive view and customer relationship management (CRM) tools that help manage relationships with current and potential future customers.

Most of todays global enterprise solutions on the market don't meet the unique needs of African businesses hence making us at Kawil develop our own homegrown solutions in partnership with international companies globally however a wholesale technology transfer from abroad won't work, enabling Africa's digital transformation requires homegrown enterprise solutions that address Africa's unique realites.

With 1.3 billion people, more than 800 mobile connections ( 477 million unique ) and 26β„… mobile internet users making meaningful solutions begin with available mobile network integrations.

Way Forward.

Considering SMS ( Kawil SMS) is critical to reaching the majority of African consumers who own a basic phone rather than a smartphone. This means enterprise Systems at the minimum, must possess SMS capabilities to commuincate with the everyday African consumer and more mobile options Kawil delivers.

In Africa, mobile numbers are still peoples unique identifiers for digital services as many users donot have email addresses which are often the default for enterprise Systems in other markets. Therefore enterprise solutions for Africa need to factor the use of mobile numbers as unique identifers were required.

USSD, a mobile protocol that is pratically obsolete in other parts of the world is an alternative digital channel that has been adopted by alot of African financial and utitly service providers. This means enterprise tools must account for the USSD channel

About 98β„… of subscribers in Africa use prepaid mobile phone plans. Prepaid usage can inform insights on consumer spending power as compared to postpaid plans which reflect usage appetite.

As homegrown African enterprise solutions must also factor in the variety of regulatory and legal requirements across Africa. Take data for instance, Africa lacks a uniform data goverance framework similar to Europe's General Data protection regulation (GDPR). Given the volume of data being generated and processed, Africa's businesses require a localized data goverance solution with a good overview of the landscape across all countries.

Despite the strong case for homegrown enterprise solutions, challenges abound for innovators working to develop them including a shortage of experienced talent, infrastructure deficiances, poor insights and data sources to power the creation of these solutions.

Although tech talent in Africa is reported to be at all time high with about 700,000 professional developers, this number pales compared to lndia's 2.75 million as of 2017. Other barriers include relatively low funding for African startups which raised $158 million in 2020 less than half of what fintech startups raised plus globalization fosters fierce competition from international enterprise providers with vast resources who are making inroads in local markets despite their ill-fitting offerings.

Regardless of these challenges, African entrepreneurs, investors and governments must come together to champion and innovate homegrown enterprise solutions to capitalize on the significant potential Africa can deliver. At Kawil also known as Kawil Group Holding Limited a member company of Latim Group, we saw the opportunity to create a unique ecosystem relevant for Africa made up of difficult to source customer data from sources like whatsapp, telco and other global brands. We have created an on demand marketing platform to help small and midsized businesses and large enterprises including banks, consumer goods and other companies reach and engage African customers at scale.

In our experience, companies that want to develop homegrown solutions must create a plan to bridge the talent gap, at Kawil, we acquired an R&D center in lndia in 2017 to help us attarct and source scarce developer talent and upskilled our local talent at kawil. We have also developed a management trainee program through which we onboard talent and provide on the job training to our developers.

Deepen your knowledge of the local terain or partner with local companies, Kawil takes a ''boots-on-the-ground'' approach relying on our team with deep and contextual knowledge of the local terrain because Africa is an extremely diverse market and our presence in the sub-saharan Africa. Because of our deep knowledge of the markets we operate in, we know what products best serve specific markets

Ensuring your business is fundable is important, the startup ecosystem in Africa raised about $1.43 billion in 2020 which should be more to enable proper digital transformation. The abilty of Africa to fully realize it's potential of a strong ecosystem of fully functional sectors hence the need for funding. To ensure that your homegrown enterprise solutions are fundable, make sure that you meet industry standards at every stage of your business development, invest in the neccessary talent and create enough traction to gain a competive edge

Africa's digital transformation offers and excited opportunity but success requires enterprise solutions that reflect the context and nuances of the continents market needs. I belief the above reflections and thoughts will help African businesses raise to meet the challenge.
