Chief Executive Officer
The vision that we have for our corporation,
Internet Technologies Ltd (nettechTM),
GOD's grace, is that we are active players in the regeneration and
rebuilding of our country Nigeria. We have come
together, one and all, to offer ourselves to service, to
the task of nation building, to the edifying of
ourselves and our people, to the reclamation of our rightful
place in the league of pre-eminent nations.
We feel that
both individuals and corporates have a role to play, in
providing leadership and sharing of resources and
experience. Our hat is thrown in the ring of technology -
the database and the Internet - and we look forward to serving the business
community and peoples of this country to the best of our
ability, so help us GOD.
Chief Technical Officer
Technology has the potential to improve so many peoples lives,
especially in Third-World economies. A major driver in the
founding of this company has been a desire to bring into the
Nigerian economy, knowledge and expertise in Information Technology
(IT) from Europe, and indirectly, from the USA. The hope is
that by working with businesses, and in some cases with the Public
sector, improvements in service could in the first instance better
the quality of interfaces provided to people.
by increasing the profitability of businesses, and their economic
activity, knowledge and wealth percolates to the society at large.
With over seven years experience in England, Scotland, and
Northern Ireland, we are in a good position to participate in this
mission of trans-continental knowledge exchange, while also securing
a place for this company, Internet Technologies Ltd, as the doyen
of Nigerian technology corporations in the not too distant future,
by GOD's Grace.
In the engineering of software systems, it has been clear,
since the 1970's that a structured approach to development
is not only necessary, but also optimal. Since those times,
it would seem that new methods and techniques to support
the development process appear almost weekly. At
nettech, we know that not all approaches are expedient in
all business environments, and we take care to apply only
those technologies that best serve the purpose.
Different problems applications require different
approaches and techniques and occassionally, an identical
problem in a different business context may require an unidentical
solution. However, in the engineering of any
substantial business systems, we insist on a structure, and
certain prerequisite procedures for evolving the solution
from the requirement. Our objective at all times is to deliver
quality systems that satisfy clients, are enduring, and
bolster our reputation as Software System Engineers.
Gabriel is a graduate of the University of Ibadan, and has several
years of experience design and development of software systems.
His empathy, patience and diligence, in addition to his experience
and knowledge of systems engineering, has been invaluable in seeing
projects from conception to completion.
The Machinery and Operating System (OS) combine to form the foundation
on which all other IT activities build, a sound foundation gives
confidence and allows room for imagination and expression in the
upper layers. At nettechTM,
we are always looking for new ways
of securing this foundation as well as cutting costs for our
customers. Over time we have developed a pragmatic bias
for the Linux OS on the backend (Server-side) as it offers
a lower cost of ownership for our clients, providing UNIX-class
features at PC prices, as well as very high levels of security
The Intel platform continues to provide
a cost effective solution for many SMEs, but more recently AMD
based systems have become an option for cash-strapped lower end
clients. The company continues to maintain expertise in,
and support for those clients whose needs are best served on
NT/2000 platforms, as well as defering to the superiority,
ubiquity and accessibility of the plethora of Windows OS(s) that
dominate the desktop. Whatever the requirements though, clients
will find the in-depth knowledge of hardware OS(s) by this department
Lawrence was formerly a Senior Network Administrator at the
Nigerian Postal Office (NIPOST) and has many years of experience
in managing hybrid networks. His proficiency with Oracle 8i databases
gives him an additional responsibility of overseeing development
database instances in a mixed NT/Linux LAN.
Perhaps the most basic requirement for excellence in any
field and particularly in the programming field is interest.
No extent of academic achievement can replace the
genuine interest of the individual to become a good
programmer. The desire to seek excellence as a
programmer is a necessary spark to fire up the persistence and
determination needed in sticking it out in the dynamic world of
logic, patterns and algorithms.
A major asset has been
the relaxed and informal office environment. This combined
with a great variety of training and complementary media, frees up the
mind, and stimulates the intellect The output and commitment of this
department attests to the value of that investment.
Combining these fundamental necessities with a structured
environment of system engineering, effort is more effectively
chanelled at delivering quality systems that not only meet, but exceed the
expectations of clients.
ABJ is a graduate of the University of Lagos and comes from a background of
C programming for bespoke commerce systems, and simulation. With extensive
experience and knowledge of a plethora of languages and environments, including,
C++, Java, PERL, Visual Basic, Linux, NT, Process Control, SQL, ... etc.
Due to the complexity of software systems, it is virtually
impossible to place a quality mark against a system of
many parts, or to give reassurances to clients based only
on the whole. However, by ensuring that the parts that
make up the whole have all been developed to a certain
standard, confidence levels can be shored up.
Quality assurance makes a logical assumption that if all the
parts of the system are correct, the whole system will be,
to a large extent, sound.
The primary tool for the
validation of the quality of software components, today, is Testing.
Testing applied throughout the system development lifecycle
verifies the sanity of requirements, is an aid to the
review of design, and the validation of the developed
system against the specification of the client's
Inadequate testing, or no testing at all, leads to errors that
become exponentially more expensive to fix as system
By employing Testing and strict
Change Management, this department helps to reduce the mean time to
failure (MTTF) and failure intensity or mean time between
failures (MTBF) of the systems engineered by nettech designers
and developers. A priceless by product of this effort is
the confidence clients gain in systems that we engineer for them.
Felecia Adebanjo is a computer science graduate with a background in
web page development and interface programming. This has been a
useful launchpad into the world of Testing and Configuration Management.
Her department now oversees the progression of software, from
specification to Customer Acceptance Testing.
The World Wide Web continues to grow faster than any other
segment of the Internet. Its graphical interface and hypertext
capabilities have caught the fancy of Internet users and the
media like no other tool in history. Businesses, Schools,
government and other organisations are flocking to the web to
promote themselves and their products in front of an audience
spanning the entire planet.
Due to the web's popularity and its cost-effectiveness as a
marketing tool, the World Wide Web is quickly becoming the
electronic market place of the future. By melding technology and
culture, we have been able to preserve the message/intention of
our clients - exegesis - while changing the medium of expression,
this requires imagination, empathy, and attention to detail,
qualities that all nettech clients can take for granted in this
new world of opportunities.
Wole is a Graphic Artist/Designer, a talented young man with vast ideas
and knowledge in Art and Design. His background has been illustration,
however, exposure to the computer and the dexterity of its interface has
convinced him of its potential for expression. He now leads our media
department and oversees all visual interfaces, online and offline.
