More than Just Data-Analytics with Pieter de Wit of Afrimat Ltd (Cape Town, RSA).

"Financial figures are the results of decisions, and you need to be involved in the decisions if you want to influence the financial figures".

 

Data is vital. So vital that, when there's no data network infrastructure where your business is based, you have to get it built yourself. This relies on relationships, partnering with mobile phone companies and local government to get it done. Cape Town-based Pieter de Wit is CFO of Afrimat South Africa, a leading black-empowered open pit mining company providing industrial minerals and construction materials. He spoke to AICPA & CIMA's Kyle Hannan shortly before presenting at the late 2018 AICPA 'Finance Transformation' conference in Johannesburg.
