Here’s My Card: Digital Business Cards For iOS and Android Platforms
2013 has been an amazing year for our parent company; Digital Bananas Technology. Earlier this year we embarked on a revolutionary new app aimed at helping small businesses instantly share their digital business cards on the go. The aim was to make a hybrid native app using web services, html 5, object C for IOS development and java for Android development.
By building the app for both IOS and Android platforms we where able to reach over 85% of the smartphone market. Candidates where given the opportunity to gain practical work experience as project managers, managing, monitoring and controlling the project by learning to implement our own PMO framework which combines the structured and process driven Prince 2 methodology and the the SDLC life cycle using the Agile approach for the first phase and the Waterfall or Agile approach for the second. PMO Analyst candidates had the opportunity to support the set up and effective running of the PMO office while our business analyst candidates were involved in creating justifiable business cases, translating business requirements into technical requirements and becoming effective communicators between the technical team and business teams.
We are proud to introduce the launch of Here’s My Card for iOS and Android platforms. Check it out
We train no more than 12- 15 candidates per session in order to focus on your ability to practically understand and apply project management methodologies, business analysis techniques, tools and templates within a technology based project environment. You can choose to attend a one week or weekend intensive session which runs for a period of four Saturdays. You will be joining an existing project team of over 100 strong project management professionals who are either already working a project management or business analysis professionals or currently gaining practical work experience. Your practical work experience will give you access to live projects, tools, templates, software and the entire PMO framework in order to successfully secure your ideal job as a project manager, PMO analyst, project planner, business analyst or QA Manager.
Watch How Our Candidates Gain Practical Work Experience In Project Management & Business Analysis
Due to the sensitive nature of the projects we work on, you will be required to sign an NDA in order to gain access. Each project is normally in partnership with one of our partnering companies: Tellallmyfriends or Digital Bananas Technology. We believe a practical hands on approach to project management or business analysis while learning on the job will improve your chances of securing a rewarding career as a project management professional or business analyst.

GrantMyWish: Integrated Lifestyle Application
In 2012 we decided to try something new. With online retailers turning their websites into natives apps and not getting the desired downloads dues to lack of end user engagements, we decided to create an integrated lifestyle application. A fully integrated mobile commerce gifting app using magento platform, coupled with facebook birthday reminders which required a number of facebook API’s. We called it GrantMyWish.
GrantMyWish was shortlisted for the 2012 innovation awards and received national coverage in the press. The app was a complete success.
