Our consulting methodology is based on a combination of Design Thinking and our own DCI methodology. We have the same objective to tackle business challenges and opportunities that traditional consulting companies have. However, the differentiator is our singular focus on delivering tangible business value as quickly as practical. No navel-gazing for us! Our consulting practice is led by Kieno Kammies, Double Eye Chief Strategy Officer, who has developed these skills over 25 years in commercial media, and through his work with NBC New York, The Airports Company of South Africa, Semanco Chrome and Multichoice.
Technology for a typical CEO is a minefield. How do you employ a CTO without the ability to assess their capability? How do you maintain continuity when your chief techie goes rogue? One of Ivan’s (Founder of Double Eye) favorite sayings is “In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king!” We have decades of experience delivering technology strategies, architecture, solving problems, and every now and then, providing “emergency services”. A trusted partner to CEOs and senior managers to both fill gaps and bridge them. We’re also often called upon by the investment community to provide venture consulting and due diligence.
We create customised solutions specifically designed to meet the needs of a client. Our Solution Design process has evolved over more than 20 years to ensure your software solution has the biggest bang for your buck! We have direct experience in a wide range of industry sectors – from tourism and leisure, banking, property, education, healthcare, and publishing to name but a few.

Our philosophy is all about delivering value!
Core to our approach is gaining a deep understanding of your business needs and, in collaboration with you, develop solutions to deliver value to your business. Our initial objective is to identify how to deliver tangible value with a bit-size chunk of work and use that as a starting point. We recognise that many of our software solutions are evolutionary and, if required, design our solutions with cost-of-ownership, scalability and flexibility in mind.
Our Approach is collaborative.
We have a mature methodology, experienced team and the leadership to work with our clients from conception to delivery. The best solutions are delivered with a successful collaboration between our team and that of our client. Embracing an Agile approach, we build applications iteratively and incrementally to incorporate feedback and welcome changing requirements. While following a strategy, we constantly inspect and adapt to develop the best possible solution and meet the overall objectives.
Technology and software is in our DNA.
Double Eye was originally founded by Ivan Izikowitz – a technologist and Internet pioneer. With the opening of the Cape Town office the leadership team expanded to include Dion Truter and Willie Prinsloo – both seasoned CTOs and world-class technologists. Our team is made up of Engineers, Architects, Strategists, Analysts, Designers and Testers. Our team is capable of the “heavy lifting” that many others shy away from.
