Tezza Partners With Gebeya to Improve IT Skills In Africa

Nairobi, Kenya Monday 13th February 2017

IT professionals and companies in Africa can now benefit from enhanced capacity building after Africa’s online developer workplace Gebeya Limited and Tezza Business Solutions the premier quality assurance, Software Testing and custom Software development company signed a partnership agreement that will see the two companies improve IT skills as well as increase the number of software testers and quality assurance in Ethiopia and Kenya.

Under the agreement, Gebeya will work with Tezza Business Solutions to ensure that it identifies software quality assurance prospects, offer talent and software development services to Tezza as per need basis. Other aspects of the partnership include collaboration to offer training for DevOps to various companies specializing in but not limited to, Enterprise Application, architecture, and API Engineering.

This partnership sprouts as the local market continues to demand from IT professionals the need to address integration issues with existing legacy systems as there is no standard regulation and testing certification for software being developed for consumers.  Following the increase of more advanced skills and training of more professionals, organizations can thus expect better more reliable software benchmarked to international standards. This training also allows developers to create more African user-friendly software developed with the customer needs in hand. This ‘local’ dimension can surely assist in encouraging better adoption and integration by the market.

Amadou Daffe, Chief Executive Officer, Gebeya, said: “At Gebeya we pride ourselves in matching skilled and certified IT professionals with corporates in order to develop solutions that equal their needs. Our partnership with Tezza a respected industry leader in the areas of quality assurance, Software Testing and Software development enables us to train and provide our customers with wide range world-class professionals in various areas that have witnessed a shortage in the past who can in turn develop innovative, efficient and scalable technology solutions.”

Tezza Business Solutions on its part will offer quality assurance and testing training services for Gebeya recruits or corporate clients as well as contract Gebeya to provide software development services or talent for projects. The training specifically targets to transfer knowledge that will enable IT professionals gain thorough knowledge of testing approaches that can be integrated into the software life cycle as well as provide knowledge on how to design products that are functional and maintainable.

Roland Omorosemi, Chief Executive Officer, Tezza Business Solutions, said: “Tezza Business Solutions is committed to reducing cost and improve overall quality of applications used by our clients by providing better-trained professionals thus our partnership with Gebeya will enable us to provide businesses and corporates with better trained and professional quality assurance certifiers, software testers and engineers.”
