Biometrics set to play crucial verification role in digital identity ecosystems
Published: 20 Apr 18
Digital identities, identification and verification systems are at the heart of modern business and civil processes and form the core of global trends of Internet of Things and customer-centric service models. The speed of interactions and the broad use of digital identities, for everything from complex, technical work to everyday shopping, will require biometrics as a key component to support seamless experience and interactions to verify the many different uses of people’s digital identities, says South African identity firm Ideco MD Marius Coetzee.
Three new Novus products improve temperature logging accuracy

Resistance persists despite declaration of new renewables dawn Resistance persists despite declaration of new renewables dawn

The world did not stop to allow South Africa to get off. While ‘sunny South Africa’ spent more than two years delaying the introduction of new renewable-energy plants, including 12 solar photovoltaic (PV) projects and a concentrated solar power (CSP) plant, the rest of the world continued investing. In 2017 alone, the generation capacity associated with solar PV grew by 32%, with the International Renewable Energy Agency (Irena) reporting a rise in worldwide capacity to 385 GW, from 292 GW in 2016. The increase is even more impressive when viewed over a longer horizon. In 2008, the global installed solar PV base stood at less than 15 GW.
