Information and Communication Technology and Systems Development:

With our intimate understanding of the financial services industry and the systems and solutions that this industry requires, we launched our ICT & Dev division in 2015.  Our CIO joins the management of our clients during daily or weekly management meetings, ensuring that we are fully informed in terms of the technological and systems needs that develop over time.  The CIO is then perfectly positioned to advise the various teams on selecting the appropriate technologies and solutions.

ICT Ops

We provide fully integrated ICT Operational service and strategic advice to our clients.  We host infrastructure on behalf of our clients at the world-class Teraco facilities in Gauteng.  We ensure that all infrastructure is selected, implemented and maintained to a world-class standard.

Our on-site technicians deal with operational needs as prioritised in real-time.

Systems Development

Our team of software engineers and architects operate in close proximity to our clients.  Our skillset revolves around the following technologies:

  • Microsoft .Net
  • C#
  • Javascript
  • Microsoft SQL
  • The Outsystems RAD solution
  • Any other development tools that the team agrees to be appropriate to solve business challenges as the arise.

We follow Agile development principles in general, but use SCRUM as a primary method to manage the development lifecycle.  We do daily stand-ups and weekly Retrospectives.  We deploy working solutions to production, as and when they are signed-off in UAT, several times every day.  Our definition of done is working code in production.  We make extensive use of pair and mob programming techniques.

We have fairly flexible working hours, with stand-up and retrospective timeslots being non-negotiable for attendance.

Financial Services

Censea is an accredited accounting and auditing firm.  Our employees cover the full spectrum of services an internal finance department would perform for a medium to large company.  In addition, all charts of accounts are prepared to a point where it is ready for external auditing.

Due to the need for companies in our industry to constantly keep abreast of legislative changes as well as changes brought about by market forces, we provide business analysis services and resulting system specifications for development by our IT Development division.

Human Resources

All companies have a need for HR and IR services.  However, it is hardly ever a service that forms part of a company’s core capabilities or intellectual property.  Whilst companies cannot operate without prudent HR and IR policies and procedures, this is a service easily outsourced.  This was the motivation for Censea to add HR to its portfolio of value added benefits for its clients.
