The challenges of unexplored terrain
Avit International B.V. focuses on designing, developing and maintaining IP-oriented networks and solutions, on premise and in the cloud. In that sense, we do the same as in the Netherlands. The difference lies in the fact that we focus on providing services to multinationals and conduct our activities in challenging areas (e.g. the African continent). “Challenging” can have several meanings. In less developed countries, basic IT facilities are often lacking, as are adequate knowledge and support. The challenge may also come from the local culture and regulations, which are protective of the area’s own entrepreneurs and wary of foreign influences. It can even be geographical in nature: remote areas, hard to reach with any form of transport, raise remarkable logistical questions. For multinationals active in such unexplored areas, the biggest challenge comes from effectively managing all aspects of their IT.
