Playing sport should be something you look forward to, not fear. If I’m not having fun out there on the basketball court then I don’t play as well. As a kid, hearing positive feedback was what gave me confidence.

GREAT MINDS MAKE GREAT MINES
Oorsig van bedrywighede: Die groep se kernbesighede het almal goed presteer en gedurende die jaar stewige groei ervaar. Dit is verblydend om te sien dat TWP Holdings en sy groepmaatskappye voortgesette steun van hul kliënte kry en in staat is om die tekort aan vaardighede op ’n innoverende en volhoubare wyse die hoof te bied. Die vermoë om personeel te lok en te behou, is verbeter deur die notering en die groep se aandeelaansporingskema wat op die oomblik geïmplementeer word. Groei word ondersteun deur ’n sterk vraag na die groep se dienste wêreldwyd, en veral in Afrika en Australië. Die bestelboek is besonder sterk, en nuwe bestellings word op ’n gereelde grondslag bekom. Hoewel sommige van die groep se projekte deur beurtkrag geraak is, het dit nie ’n wesenlike uitwerking op óf winsgewendheid óf die vordering van projekte gehad nie. Op ’n toekomsgerigte grondslag word geleenthede gesoek om die kragvoorsieningsprobleme deur die innoverende gebruik van tegnologie wat aan die groep beskikbaar is, hok te slaan. Gebeure ná die balansstaatdatum: Op 29 Februarie 2008 het TWP Holdings bekend gemaak dat hy ’n ooreenkoms aangegaan het om 100% te verkry van die uitgereikte aandelekapitaal van en
aandeelhouerslenings aan TPS Architects (Pty) Limited, een van Suid-Afrika se grootste firmas van industriële en kommersiële argitekte. Hierdie transaksie is steeds onderworpe aan regulerende goedkeuring en die voltooiing van kontroleringsprosedures. Dividende: Soos in die voornoteringsverslag vermeld is, is geen dividend verklaar nie aangesien die groep se finansiële reserwes tans gebruik word om die besigheid organies en deur middel van nuwe besigheids-verkryings uit te brei. Vooruitsigte: Die Direksie is verheug met die groep se bedrywighede en verwag dat die stewige groei sal voortduur. Derhalwe bly die voorspellings wat in die voornoteringsverslag gedoen is steeds van krag en bereikbaar. Aankondigings met betrekking tot nuwe werk, nuwe besigheids-verkryings en geleenthede wat nagestreef word, kan gedurende die komende jaar verwag word.

FINANSIËLE RESULTATE EN OORSIG VAN BEDRYWIGHEDE Finansiële resultate: Inkomste het met 126% tot R705 miljoen gestyg in vergelyking met die syfer vir die vorige finansiële jaar. Bruto wins het met R201 miljoen tot R291 miljoen (222%) toegeneem. Dié prestasie, wat die groep se vooruitskatting in die groep se voornoteringsverklaring oortref het, het gekom na ’n stewige aanvraag na die groep se dienste op alle bedryfsgebiede. Bedryfswins het met 193% verbeter en wins voor belasting met 228%. Wesensverdienste per aandeel van 93.82 sent is die eerste keer gepubliseer aangesien TWP Holdings 'n pas genoteerde entiteit is, en dit verteenwoordig 'n toename van 187% wanneer dit met die wesensverdienste van 36.24 sent van die vorige jaar vergelyk word. Diverse inkomste sluit in wins met die verkoop van filiaal TWP House (Pty) Limited ten bedrae van R4.6 miljoen asook wins met die verkoop van ’n belegging ten bedrae van R5.4 miljoen. Die balansstaat soos aan die einde van die jaar bly steeds sterk met netto bates ten bedrae van R331.8 miljoen, insluitend vir beleggings van R51.3 miljoen en ’n netto kontantsaldo van R79 miljoen. Die verbeterde stand van die balansstaat kan hoofsaaklik toegeskryf word aan die positiewe effek van meer bedryfsaktiwiteite asook die fondse wat verkry is as deel van die groep se private plasing van aandele gedurende November 2007.

FINANCIAL OVERVIEW Following a change in control during February this year, ConvergeNet negotiated a number of strategic acquisitions. In March ConvergeNet acquired 100% of the issued share capital of ConvergeNet SA (Pty) Ltd, 51% of the issued share capital in Structured Connectivity Solutions (Pty) Ltd in April, 51% of the issued share capital in Sizwe Africa IT Group (Pty) Ltd in June and 74% of the issued share capital in Telesto Communications (Pty) Ltd also in June. The results of these subsidiaries were included in the results of the group from the effective date of control. As ConvergeNet, previously known as Vestor Investments Limited did not trade during the 2006 financial year, any past comparison would not be relevant. Shareholders are informed that the reported results of the acquired companies were for different periods as a result of the relative effective date of control of each of the acquisitions, and that these periods were shorter than a full financial year. All of the subsidiaries were profitable for the period under review and performed in line with expectations. The group generated R50,030m of cash during the year and has virtually no interest-bearing financing from external sources. Operational overview All of the acquired businesses experienced good growth in comparison to their respective prior year results for the same period. The companies in the group are able to attract the necessary talent and the supplier situation is promising. Board changes Apart from the resignations of the original Vestor Investments Limited directors, all of the current directors were appointed during this period as stated in the following schedule. Director Date appointed Date resigned Melvyn Antonie 15 June 2006 19 February 2007 John Edwin van der Burgh 15 June 2006 19 February 2007 Leon David van Wyk 15 June 2006 19 February 2007 Darryl John Ablitt White 15 June 2006 19 February 2007 Norman Ross Macdonald* 19 February 2007 Martin Deon van Rooyen* 19 February 2007 Pieter Willem Johannes Bouwer 19 February 2007 Sandile Swana* 19 February 2007 Gordon Stanley Edwards 19 February 2007 Sindile Lester Leslie Peteni* 19 February 2007

Change in control During the year under review there was a change in control to Adage Technology Fund SA Limited at 6.5 cents per share. An offer was made to minority shareholders at 16 cents per share, with no acceptances thereof. Acquisitions and issue of shares for cash Apart from the shares issued as settlement for the acquisition of subsidiaries, the company also issued 4 000 000 shares for cash at 63 cents per share. Change in name of company and increase in authorised share capital Pursuant to the change in control and various acquisitions noted above, the company changed its name to ConvergeNet Holdings Limited with effect from commencement of trade on 25 September 2007, under a new share code CVN and ISIN code ZAE000102067. The company increased its authorised share capital to 1 000 000 000 shares during the period under review. Prospects Due to the buoyant conditions in the market and industry, the prospects for the group are good. Shareholders are reminded that the forthcoming year will reflect the results for a full reporting period of the combined group for the first time.

grow Your own Try getting your kids to grow their own fruit and veggies, because if they’re involved, then that’s half the battle. You don’t need to have a big veggie patch. Try alfalfa and take it from there.
hide healThY Food in Fun Food Blending veggies to make a spaghetti sauce, or making desserts out of fruit is a ‘sneaky’ way to get the kids to eat well.
iF TheY cook iT, TheY ll eaT iT Get kids involved in the kitchen, if it’s ‘their’ meal, they’ll munch it down.

ingredienTs: 1 Cup strawberries 1 /3 Cup frozen blueberries 2 Bananas ¼ Cup orange juice 1 ½ Cups low fat strawberry yogurt ½ Cup of milk 4 Cubes of ice
meThod: 1. Cut the top off your strawberries, then combine them with your blueberries, bananas, juice, yogurt and milk in a blender. 2. Blend until smooth. 3. Serves 4-6
Kids think these are super fun - hollowed out apples to make punch cups. And once they’re done with the drink, they eat the apple.
ingredienTs: 4 Apples 1 Cup cranberry juice 1 ½ Natural sparkling water
1 Tablespoon lemon juice 1 Cup apple juice 4 Cinnamon sticks
meThod: 1. First make your ‘cupples’ - take the top off your apples and cut out the core, being careful not to cut through to the bottom. To stop the apples from browning, brush the edges with lemon juice. 2. Next make your drink - in a jug, mix your cranberry juice, your apple juice and sparkling water. 3. Pour your mocktail into your cupples, garnish each a cinnamon stick and serve.
If you’ve got a couple of hard-boiled eggs in the fridge, these delicious brekky pizzas are great for school day breakfast.
ingredienTs: 4 English muffins 1 Sliced tomato 2 Eggs
½ Cup grated mozzarella Oregano Tomato sauce

SAS Institute Planning Monitoring and Evaluation Campaign
SAS Institute Type: Campaign • Art direction • Campaign design • Brand management • Layout, design and typeset • Illustration • Photo-editing • Deep-etching • Exhibition design • Gift promotions Description: Develop a campaign to encourage government to set better systems in place and streamline the process through planning, monitoring and evaluation. Design and prepare collateral for distribution and display. “In order to make all the puzzle pieces fit, information needs to flow from all government departments into the central repository where it can be analysed. In short, information from local government must be available to both provincial and national government and vice versa, in order to measure successes and evaluate priorities from a micro to macro level,” adds Naidoo.
collection, classification, analysis and interpretation of data to reveal patterns, anomalies, key variables and relationships, leading ultimately to new insights and better answers faster,” states Naidoo.
another five years down the line of technology deployment without having achieved the intended outcomes and impact within government - without being any closer to achieving your mandate.”
In short the system has to be made up of the backend integration of disparate systems and the centralisation of existing data, collected from various sources within each department such as spreadsheets and different databases. When this is achieved you can now start focusing on the tools and user interfaces that support Strategic Performance Management, Activity Based Management, Business Analytics, Dashboards and geographic maps that support a graphical view of the collated information.
The SAS process In this whiteboard we have developed a schematic view that will help you visualise the approach used in developing a planning, monitoring and evaluation system, and the outcome based results you should achieve with its deployment. Breaking it down, SAS can help with your monitoring needs by showing the difference between planned activities and actual activities. Some examples include projects, budgets, progress tracking and programmes of action. These can then be presented in either a dashboard, a series of graphs or reports, or can be pulled into your existing office applications for easy integration and presentation.
Building the puzzle As a government department you have all the pieces to the jigsaw puzzle that make up the pictures that contribute towards your service delivery vision. But sometimes when built, the pieces just don’t give you the picture you were ideally looking for. Either because you ran out of funds, couldn’t predict the population explosion in the area, or weren’t able to determine the exact nature of the resource and infrastructure needs.
The picture Once you have the right information to support the process, the picture simply falls into place and you can start to visualise the information flow that supports decision-making. Taking the information from source to analysis is the critical link in successful planning, monitoring, evaluation and reporting. With the tools that support data integration,
On the evaluation side SAS is able to assist with Forecasting, Trends, Optimisation and Analytics. SAS uses a series of statistical methods to collate data, and turn it into useable information. Using tools such as cluster analytics and predictive modelling to help governments get answers from their data, beyond
the key to effective Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation
he one thing that government has is data, and lots of it. Each department has information on its citizens, its own staff, its programmes, projects and given mandates. The real value of this information can only be tapped into when systems are deployed that can integrate government-wide data to provide a single-view, or story of events that give government the tools to make decisions. Enter business analytics...
The 8 levels Standard Reports provide you with the tools to answer the questions: What Happened? When did it happen?
with low cost housing? If we don’t have enough money to service the community from the rates and taxes paid, where else can we source funding and resources from? Alerts provide you with the necessary information to answer: When should we react? What actions are needed now? These provide departments and agencies with the ability to be proactive as opposed to reactive. In the same vein that sales people receive alerts when targets are falling behind, so government departments and agencies can receive alerts to notify them
When deployed, the aforementioned system should provide you with the ability to harness an integrated environment for predictive and descriptive modelling, data mining, text analytics, forecasting, optimisation, simulation, experimental design and more. It will identify the reasons why the puzzles pieces don’t fit, provide you with answers on how to make them fit, and then predict what the next picture should look like and give you the information you need to make it fit. “True planning, monitoring, evaluation and reporting will only really come into play with the adoption of a solution that enables you to perform statistical analysis with your data. The system needs to be able to cater for the
data quality and data analysis, government will be able to move from an efficient to an effective government that supports outcomes based planning, monitoring and evaluation.
“Make sure that the solution you select is one that is able to integrate multiple data sources in order to get a consolidated view, namely data across various outside systems and across the three spheres of government,” cautions Naidoo. “With this in place you can achieve real integration of existing transversal, as well as operational government systems – without engaging in a costly exercise to replace technologies.”
just query and reporting, making use of advanced analytics to reach conclusions.
Efficient and Effective “If your goal was to build a puzzle of a town with all of the basic services such as roads, schools, water, lights, refuse removal, and basic citizen services in place, then your planning, monitoring and evaluation system should provide the picture of whether they are in fact all there. If they aren’t it should highlight why they aren’t there and how that can be overcome. We cannot fix nor improve that which we cannot see,” ends Naidoo.
“The key is that you must not aim to reinvent your current systems, because if you do, we will be
Optimisation supports innovation. It takes existing resources and needs into consideration and helps government find the best possible way to accomplish its goals.
The use of standard reports in government will enable better monitoring of the success of a project. For example: How many homes have we built and how many were we supposed to have built as per our commitment as a department? Ad Hoc Reports can be used to provide the answers for the questions: How many? How often? Where?
These are custom reports that provide specific detail on questions that government has of their departments. Namely, how many patients does the HIV clinic in a region see per week, how many doctors are on site, and are we over or under resourced? Query Drilldown or OLAP as it is more commonly known, will enable you more insight into: Where exactly is the problem? How do we find the answers?
This provides the added extra you need to know from your data, and allows for discovery as you can now manipulate the data to get the answers. For example: How many people in our municipality pay rates and taxes or is this a municipality which is populated
when a potential problem is rearing its head. If the projects within the Government Programme of Action are running late, and we need to notify key stakeholders – we can send those alerts and notifications via e-mail, SMS, RSS feeds or as red dials on a scorecard or dashboard. Statistical Analysis is one of the more effective steps as it can answer: Why is it happening? What opportunities are we missing? How many people in our region are requesting social grants, is this number increasing, and how is it linked to the unemployment figures of our area? With statistical analysis government can run complex analytics, like frequency models and regression analysis. Departments can now begin to look at why things are happening using the stored data and then begin to answer questions based on the data.
EVALUATION IN GOVERNMENT
Forecasting offers government the ability to look ahead and answer: What if these trends continue? How much is needed? When will it be needed? We need more facilities to cater for taxis as there is a growing demand for public
evaluation framework allows you to plan, monitor, evaluate and report on performance.
lanning, monitoring and evaluation is the new kid on the block, and it forms a quintessential component of government’s goal to meet the demands of the citizens it serves – through effective service delivery.
Predictive Modelling you need to try answer questions for tomorrow: What will happen next? How will it affect my business? If we have 10 million citizens and want to do a health awareness campaign around HIV/AIDS, who’s most likely to respond? How do we segment that population group? And how do we determine who’s most likely to participate? Predictive modelling provides the answers. Optimisation allows us to take the evaluation and implement: How do we do things better? What is the best decision for a complex problem?
Government had mandated that its divisions and offices deploy an Electronic System to measure programmes, projects, initiatives, and expenditure. Making use of a Monitoring and Evaluation Framework, the system needs to assist government in dealing with effectiveness of service delivery. Services include Electricity, Waste, Sanitation, Education, Social, Welfare, Safety and Security, etc.
Given government’s strategic and development priorities, resource constraints and available technology, you can determine the best way to optimise your IT systems in government to speed up processing and at the same time increase departmental productivity, lower costs for departments and improve the effectiveness of service delivery to citizens. Optimisation supports innovation. It takes existing resources and needs into consideration and helps government find the best possible way to accomplish its goals.
The planning, monitoring and evaluation solution is made up of back end integration of existing data collected from various sources within each department such as Xcel spreadsheets and its various disparate databases. Challenges that government face are the need to include data quality of information and the adoption of an Enterprise Data Warehouse to store the consolidated information. Add-ons that will enhance the overall solution include a Strategic Performance Management (SPM) user interface, an Analytics user interface, and Dashboards for a graphical view of the collated information.
As it stAnds... As Government we are delivering services to citizens, but some projects just aren’t coming together properly and we are falling short on delivering on some of our mandates. How can we as Government become more efficient, and how can we see where the shortfalls are, so that we can enhance service delivery?
As Government we have delivered homes, but we haven’t managed to meet some of our quotas before funds ran out. We have provided running water, sanitation, and refuse removal in areas but our citizens are still complaining.
Rates are being collected by our municipalities, but we just can’t predict how much revenue to expect in the future, in order for us to do effective planning. Our data just doesn’t show it.
“The goal of an effective planning, monitoring and evaluation system is to provide departments, agencies and the Presidency with a single view of government performance relative to the programmes, projects or initiatives run within the Public Sector. And then highlight where things can be done better and where they can be improved. In short plug the holes and use the successes as benchmarks for future service delivery improvement,” he adds. The future state also shown in the whiteboard is to get to the point where government is able to better plan, monitor, evaluate, and act, and in so doing bolster service delivery of
While we needed to spend extra capital on building schools, we were able to save money on road infrastructure because of the effective placement of the new schools. We are now able to accurately predict the expected population
and Evaluation FrAMEwork With a Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation solution Government can now start asking the right questions with regards to its Departments performance, at a national, provincial and local level. With the answers provided by the SAS solution, Government can measure efficiency and effectiveness, as well as determine where it can expect to address service delivery shortfalls.
Now we can evaluate our service delivery successes and map them to our strategic initiatives, as well as the continuous attainment of the millennium development goals.
The answer lies in a centralised planning, monitoring and evaluation system that provides a single view of all national, provincial and local activities. This can ultimately be achieved by the enablement of the government wide Monitoring and Evaluation Framework that will support the integration of data from these three spheres of government into a central repository, no matter the source. And then be able to process and analyse it to provide the Presidency and other institutions tasked with the oversight function, with tangible answers that will enable them to provide insight into service delivery improvements that can be made.
“If we look at the puzzle pieces in the attached whiteboard we can see that service delivery mandates are being met by departments, but sometimes the delivery lacks cohesion or falls short of achieving the original outcomes and impact,” says Desan Naidoo, general manager public sector division at SAS.
With the Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation solution, Government can ensure efficient and effective service delivery now and into the future.
As Government we can now see how we are spending our allocated budgets and prioritise what services we are delivering to our citizens.
With the establishment of the new Monitoring and Evaluation department the Presidency has made it clear that it wants to move from an efficient to an effective government that is transparent and accountable. But the process will not be without challenges, as departments and agencies currently run disparate systems that collect independent data and work in isolation.
Why monitor and evaluate Simply put, government departments drown in information, from taxpayers to services, to personal information, to regional information about roads, power, and even legislation. While neatly stowed away in their own departmental silos this data is a critical link towards supporting the institutionalisation of planning, monitoring and evaluation best practices within government.
We now can forecast how many houses we will need to build and we can effectively allocate budgets for these initiatives. Using the dashboard we can now ensure that we monitor poverty alleviation and economic development.
all departments for the betterment of the citizens. This can be achieved by enabling the relevant policy frameworks within the public sector through the harnessing of systems already in place, and then applying a methodology and set of software tools that bring together disparate government data into a centralised data repository. By the application of business analytics into this centralised data repository, government will then be able to analyse, forecast and optimise this data, to provide answers to key social, economic and development questions. This single view will

Forecasting is one of the hottest markets – and hottest analytical application – right now. It applies everywhere. In particular, forecasting demand helps supply just enough services, so you don’t run out or have too much.

One of the cornerstones that will enable an effective Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation Framework is the ability to deploy technology solutions that enable government to process its existing data. From this data, the technology must provide them with the information that they need to better plan, monitor and evaluate the successes and shortfalls of government programmes and projects.
