Botswana Information Technology Society
BITS is a non-profit, voluntary organisation, working to assist individuals and organisations to benefit from current ICT developments and advancements. Our focus is to undertake activities that contribute to increasing the beneficial uptake of ICT and improving the effectiveness of the ICT sector. It is against this backdrop that BITS works in capacity building for ICT professionals. BITS represents the various ICT stakeholders in the government, industry and academic sectors (public and private) in Botswana.
Its constitutional framework enables its members to come from different backgrounds and brings together a variety of skills and experiences, spanning from technical, application, and management knowledge of ICT. What the members have in common is their interest in IT application and deployment in Botswana, in maintaining high standards of practice in the IT profession and in contributing to maximising returns on IT investments in the country.
The Botswana Information Technology Society (BITS) is emerging as the voice of the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) industry, and continually seeks to provide better value for members as well as the nation at large with regards to ICT awareness and uptake, liaising with both government and industry leaders, as well as being more involved in advocacy.
