Since the 20th century, IT has been the fastest growing industry in Tanzania. Eventually, IT has impacted tremendous growth across various sectors and also brought various business opportunities in Tanzania.
With this advent of IT, 15 years back, a small company named Techno Brain, commenced its journey by setting up an IT training centre in 1997 in Dar es Salaam. However unlike other companies, Techno Brain did not stop there and made a strategic move in enhancing its expansion of operations. It sought to offer ICT solutions within the African region. After a decade long journey, Techno Brain, the pioneer of IT in Tanzania, now stands as a leading ICT, IT Training and BPO/ ITES provider in Africa.
In an interview to a Tanzanian Daily, Manoj Shanker, Techno Brain’s Group CEO, stated, “Since inception, Techno Brain held a vision to be recognized as a respected, global IT firm, while also being committed to society’s development. With this vision and continuous support from governments across various African countries and strategic partners, Techno Brain has been able to create a difference in the lives of the common man with various innovative solutions”.
Now, in a real sense, every day and at every stage, Techno Brain’s solutions are contributing to the endeavours of government or semi-government bodies in several countries to earn more revenue, ensure national security, enhance financial transparency, monitor drug trafficking, provide better citizen-centric services and ensure an environment free of child abuse and violence.
In the latter half of 2000, this Tanzanian IT company felt the need to widen its scope and go global. Thus, with an aim of leveraging the best infrastructure and the best pool available in India. Techno Brain has managed to go beyond borders and set up its first Research & Development centre at Hyderabad in India. Over time the company has also expanded its operations to USA, UAE and UK. These strategic moves placed Techno Brain in the cadre of a record breaker in terms of international success.
Techno Brain became the first Tanzanian IT company to go global and penetrate Indian market, to be recognized as the centre of excellence in IT in the world. In 2011, the R&D centre was appraised at Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) Level 3.
Over the years, Techno Brain has made its mark in Africa as a value-added ICT solutions provider. For its contribution towards providing effective and high quality ICT Solutions, the company has won several global awards such as the Country Partner and ISV Partner of the Year by Microsoft and number one IT Company among KPMG’s survey of top 100 mid-sized firms.
The journey for this Tanzanian company may not have been easy. However, armed with determination and a soaring vision, there seemed no aim too lofty that could not be achieved. Today, TECHNO Brain stands as a true example of enduring success as it continues to take giant strides into a promising future!
