Synthesis cloud expert to speak at MyBroadband conference

Media Release
12 June 2018


The 2018 MyBroadband Cloud Conference, to be held on 13 June 2018 at Gallagher Estate in Gauteng, is the premier event of its kind in South Africa. The conference will be attended by more than 1 500 of South Africa’s top cloud, hosting and security executives and IT professionals. Seventeen speakers will share information about hosting services, data centres, cloud computing, virtualisation, hosting infrastructure and connectivity.

Synthesis Software Technologies’ Head of Cloud Consulting, Darryl Govender, is a panellist at the conference. Govender will be part of a panel discussion chaired by MyBroadband’s Editor-at-Large, Jan Vermeulen, which will discuss the benefits of moving to cloud, the value of Amazon Web Services (AWS) as a cloud platform in the South African context, and the need for skills development in the software development space. Synthesis will also showcase its services as one of the event’s 35 exhibitors.

Michael Shapiro, Synthesis’ Managing Director, explains the value of being represented at such a forum: “The business case for cloud has become compelling. If adopted in a considered manner, cloud computing can offer cost savings and improve business agility and scalability. We enjoy an exceptionally strong relationship with AWS, who are the premier provider of cloud solutions globally. AWS and other cloud providers are some of the fastest-growing technology companies in the world today, and their growth increasingly includes South Africa. Forums such as the MyBroadband conference are hugely beneficial in terms of establishing industry best practice and communicating the significant value that cloud computing offers in the business environment.”

As Amazon Web Services’ first company to achieve Advanced Consulting Partner status in Africa, and with 60 AWS certifications amongst its staff, Synthesis is focused on building advanced cloud architecture for customers, delivering cost-efficient, web-scale and highly available services with global reach.
