Foster-Melliar’s mission is to provide organisations with the momentum and wisdom they need to grow, innovate and add value to their customers and improve performance. Foster-Melliar’s business model is designed to assist organisations with Process, People Skills, and Coaching to ensure alignment, leadership capability and understanding.
Foster-Melliar’s vision is to be the knowledge partner of choice for consulting, learning and implementation of value-added business systems and processes.
Foster-Melliar pioneered ITIL, a service management best practice approach in the early 1990’s in South Africa.
Our initial journey evolved to bring together some of the countries skills and experience in the ITSM industry.
We supplemented our expanding ITIL portfolio with complementing best practices which include;
- COBIT, best practices for IT Governance
- DevOps, best practices that combine software development and Information Technology Operations which shortens systems development life cycles and provides continuous delivery with high software quality, as well as;
- Agile, best practices relevant to Software Development Projects management.
Several years later we strengthened our market position from a collaboration with iSolve Business Solutions and, overtime, successfully absorbed the iSolve Learning Solutions, a leading Microsoft Gold Training Partner into Foster-Melliar and became a level 2 B-BBEE contributor.
Thirty years later Foster-Melliar Learning Solutions is still a Microsoft Gold Partner proud to continue our Microsoft Technologies, Best Practice Training and Consulting with added services to our portfolio such as our Learnership and Internship programs.
Our journey has continued and evolved over time. We are continuously expanding our portfolio of products and services to meet every changing industry need and we recently qualified as an accredited SUSE Partner. This ensures we are skilled and ready for deployment of new technology in beta and early adopter phases of leading cloud and related technologies, offering customers the competitive advantage of “first to market” adoption.
Our consultant-led training and coaching capability can help clients maximize investment and react quickly to changing markets by developing a framework to evaluate, deploy, manage, and extend the skills of their human intellectual capital. Our consultants are geared to deliver the programmes and apply it to specific work environments, with real-life experience.
Through a blended learning approach delegates can structure their learning experience based on their individual and collective needs. From a compact competence-based course to an entire re-skilling programme with built in materials that are based on real-life scenarios and best practices.
Foster-Melliar is a key role player of the 4IR (4th Industrial Revolution) in partnership with the MICT SETA and provides the required skills for the digitised future.
Our MICT SETA accredited Learnership and Internships programmes provide IT work-based education and training and are linked to a qualification registered on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) to increase access to employment opportunities in the IT industry, paving the way for innovation-led prosperity.
