Intervate will be sponsoring the highly popular Microsoft SharePoint and SQL gathering with a charitable twist in September 2013.
Intervate, South Africa’s foremost provider of Enterprise Information Management (EIM) solutions has formally announced its sponsorship of the highly successful SharePoint Saturday seminar to the Cape Town business sector on 7 September 2013 at the Sanlam Head Office in Bellville, Western Cape.
This year SharePoint Saturday and SQL Saturday have been combined to form ‘Community Saturday’ – a free gathering in which registered delegates can learn more about Microsoft SharePoint and SQL whilst giving their attention to a worthy charitable cause.
Aligning with the theme of Community, Intervate will dedicate its stand and its efforts at the event to their community project: Ubuntu House.
Ubuntu House, part of the AFM Executive Welfare uMephi project, is a place of safety and a halfway house for newborn babies given up by their mothers or saved from abortions and rejection due to HIV or related social issues.
Intervate will be running an engaging and participative competition at its stand during Community Saturday with the objective of donating critical supplies such as milk formula for the infants at Ubuntu House.
“Community is a big part of Intervate’s focus as an organisation. Our mission statement reads: to deliver to customers solutions that have a meaningful impact that improve productivity and reduce costs, and to create value for and have meaningful impact on the lives of our staff, customers, stakeholders and importantly our community” adds Marc Fletcher, Sales and Marketing Director at Intervate.
“In July we visited Ubuntu House as a part of our Mandela Day community efforts and witnessed first hand the impact that a corporate partner can have on a worthy cause. By dedicating our Community Saturday efforts to Ubuntu house we hope to drive awareness and encourage a spirit of giving”
“Community Saturday is about getting everyone together in the SharePoint and SQL environment to share ideas and learn. We hope that Intervate can add to that whilst extending a helping hand to those who are in need”, concluded Fletcher.
