IBM, CFAO technologies to modernise Cameroon government payroll system

New system based on IBM mainframe and storage technologies

By CBR Staff Writer

The Cameroon Ministry of Finance has selected IBM and CFAO Technologies, an IBM Business Partner in West Africa, to help modernise the payroll processes for government employees in the country.

The new system is based on IBM mainframe and storage technologies, which will increase the security of the Ministry’s payroll system and improve the efficiency of processes including generating pay slips.

Under the agreement, IBM will provide the Ministry with its Total Storage and tape drive.

In addition, the Cameroon’s Ministry of Finance will use the new z10 Business Class mainframe to run its messaging applications based on IBM Lotus Notes and Lotus Domino software.

By running business analytics applications, the Ministry will have a clearer view of payroll processes to support better decision making, IBM said.

IBM West Africa country general manager Taiwo Otiti said as companies and governments across Africa and other growth markets invest in advanced technologies to transform their national infrastructures, the mainframe is coming into its own.

"Not only does the mainframe provide a secure and powerful IT platform, but it also helps companies and organisations respond to rapid growth in mobile computing and pave the way for smart computing systems," Otiti said.
