WHAT WE DO


Take a look at the various current trends affecting IT professionals that will be covered at the IT Leaders Africa Summit.

 

New tech & CX

The rapid advancement of tech is largely influencing the way that customers interact with organisations.

Digital Disruption

C-level executives need to know their market and be able to think ahead so as to not be blindsided by the constantly emerging disruptive technological advances.

IT integration into the business strategy

C-level IT executives need to engage with the board by expressing the business opportunity that IT can bring rather than IT in itself.

 

Cyber security is a priority

IT Leaders are looking to pre-empt potential cyber-attacks and avoid damage control.

The state of IT in Africa

Government and organisations need to digitally engage low income markets. ICT policies across the continent are constantly developing.

The digital customer

Customers are becoming more demanding, and IT leaders need to build a digital framework for these customers to interact with.

 

Monetising data

There is a large amount of data available, and organisations need to know what data to use and how to use it.

Leveraging young talent

Organisations need to focus on nurturing and developing IT talent from a young age for the constant up skilling of the industry.

Privacy & regulation

IT leaders need to consider regulations surrounding privacy in transactions between the organisation and the customer.
