Dans une logique d’optimisation des ressources, beaucoup d’entreprises réfléchissent à une stratégie d’implémentation de systèmes automatisés pour augmenter la productivité et contrôler les coûts. Contrairement aux êtres humains, l’intelligence artificielle peut travailler sans s’arrêter. L’intelligence artificielle fournit une prestation de service constante, étant capable de reproduire la même performance sur la durée.

The general election results of 8 June in the United Kingdom (UK) have inflicted severe damage to Prime Minister Theresa May and the Conservatives. As a result, May’s ‘Brexit means Brexit’ has now a whole new meaning and her initial plans may be in shambles.

We assume that we know what we want and know why we do what we do, but then how do you explain when things don’t go the way we want and as we assume.  Or better, how do you explain when others are able to achieve things that seem to defy all the assumptions, like building and owning over 300 hundred businesses? The business tycoon I am referring to is Richard Branson.

Whether you shop online, engage e-services or post on social media channels, everyone has a digital identity that represents you as a unique individual, usually based on your email, national ID or mobile phone number. At the same time, what distinguishes you in the physical world is generally irrelevant to how you are identified in the digital world.

A couple of months ago, I travelled to South Africa on a study tour as part of my Executive MBA programme at Cass Business School (London). The focus of the study tour was on ‘leading change in an increasingly complex world’.

It is now well known that gender diversity is an important component of corporate governance and research has proven that a number of benefits are associated with gender diversity on corporate boards.

Le développement du secteur financier et plus particulièrement du marché boursier à Maurice répond à un besoin de nouvelles formes de financement. En effet, les entreprises recherchent en plus du traditionnel prêt bancaire des sources de financement qui n’auront pas le même impact sur le taux d’endettement, par exemple. Nous avons donc assisté ces dernières années à une augmentation du nombre d’entreprises cotées en Bourse, cotation qui va aussi de pair avec un impératif de plus en plus accru de transparence et de bonne gouvernance.

Too much ink has been spilt already on this topic! Let’s just stop this discussion once and for all. This article closes the loop.

A few weeks ago, myself and a few of my streetwise work colleagues were invited to attend a presentation by a European-based company pitching about a software product derived from artificial intelligence (AI). From a sales point of view it ticks all the boxes. The company is highly innovative, it has an impressive client base, it is run by reputable businessmen, the brain power behind the software is exceptional and it even has its own Wikipedia page.

Les entreprises sont-elles pleinement conscientes de l’importance de planifier la gestion de leurs actifs matériels ? Développent-elles une approche tactique face à cette problématique ou sont-elles beaucoup plus dans l’improvisation ? Dharmen Dhaliah, «Certified   Assessor», apporte des éléments de réponse.

Like every Mauritian living abroad, I take pride in every mention of Mauritius in the international press and I get ever so slightly emotional when someone who has been on holiday in Mauritius tells me how beautiful it is and how kind its people has been to them. There is no doubt that us Mauritians are kind people indeed, forever welcoming. However I cannot help but remember every time my loved ones in Mauritius told me of their bad experience with customer service, or how rude someone was towards them.

Enjeux RH

A few years back, cybersecurity was something that did not get a lot of attention from boards. Today, when scanning headlines and news about the latest high-profile cyberattacks, your blood pressure elevates as you wonder: could that happen to us? What would be the impact on our business? How would we respond to customers and shareholders? With such high stakes, most of us would agree that cybersecurity deserves full attention from the highest levels of an organisation.

Il y a 25 ans, une petite équipe de journalistes chevronnés prenait le pari de faire un magazine économique. Au fil des années, les effectifs se sont constamment renouvelés. Certains d’eux ont bien voulu se confier. Petit voyage dans le temps.

I was interested in the reaction of  L’express readers to Jean Paul Arouff interesting article entitled “Fuite de cerveaux” as a follow-up to Mugabe’s speech at the African forum.

Les stéréotypes nous mènent la vie dure. Croyez-le, les femmes qui atteignent les postes à haut niveau de responsabilité ne sont pas toutes des guerrières ‘amazones’ qui doivent obligatoirement évoluer dans un environnement de compétition fortement ‘masculinisé’. Et les hommes ne sont pas tous des ‘machos’ qui se font un devoir d’accueillir des femmes aux postes décisionnaires pour répondre au besoin des ‘quotas’.

Le secteur des Tic ou plutôt le secteur de l’information et du numérique a connu un développement fulgurant à partir des années 2000 et compte 750 entreprises avec pas moins de 23 000 emplois directs après une dizaine d’années, selon le Board of Investment.

Ever since the dual licensing regime was done away with in the new Bank of Mauritius Act 2004, our financial sector has thrived impressively. To ensure its viability and sustained expansion, it is imperative to take a long-term strategic view for the financial sector.  It is universally agreed that the challenges are many, the risks and vulnerabilities are many, the uncertainties are many but the window of new opportunities is narrow – extremely narrow indeed. As a small and highly open economy opera-ting in a globalised world of finance, Mauritius faces various challenges. The two overriding challenges are how best to address the risks and vulnerabilities associated with the offshore business sector and how best to maintain the competitive advantage of the financial sector as a whole.
