Venue: Four Seasons
Whether you prefer the term disruption, or the term transformation, one thing is certain: the digital (r)evolution is taking place and gaining pace. And it’s driving huge growth in consumer culture in Africa. The challenge then, for all enterprises, but particularly those in finance, services, retail and oil, gas and mining, is to react fast. Digital transformation drives the need for infrastructure and services that deliver more than connectivity.
The digital revolution has created new expectations – consumers want more and expect interactions to be seamless and immediate. The fundamental challenge for CIOs in Africa today is to re-evaluate their business models and ensure IT is moving at the speed of the business. IT strategies must be aligned with business operations and the unique demands of each market within Africa – given that almost no two African markets are the same.
Digital transformation is a massive opportunity for every business, if your IT foundations are in place. A successful transformation journey has 3 key areas at its base: networks, security and cloud. However, technology alone won’t generate more value for the enterprise. People are key, because ultimately, the end users of technology are people.
