I help develop stories that break through the clutter of today's media environment, distinguish campaigns and brands from the competition, and stick with the intended audience across adapted media.
5G mobile technology promises to unlock real-time analytics, cloud-based AI and IoT applications for enterprises, but African service providers are just starting to deploy the wireless mobile technology.
Interview with IBM Distinguished Engineer and Chief Technology Officer, IBM Blockchain Services for Middle East & Africa, Anthony Butler.
Satellite communication services fuel broadband, IoT applications in underserved areas.
The launch earlier this month of an Amazon Web Services (AWS) region in Cape Town ratchets up the competition among the hyperscale cloud providers in Africa, providing enterprise tech leaders with more services to choose from and different pricing options.
The presence of AWS also helps ensure that rival vendors that have not yet opened their own facilities will rush to do so, for fear of missing out on a growing market, thus providing businesses with even more choice.
Cloud and emerging technologies such as machine learning are enabling new types of businesses around the world. Although cloud uptake in Africa lags behind most other regions, early adopters on the continent are beginning to spring up. Intergreatme, maker of its namesake digital identity platform, is one of them.
Kate Krukiel, GM of UN Digital Solutions Centre and managing director of Sera Afrika, says emerging tech can address business and societal challenges. In this Q&A, Kate shares her insights on applications of key emerging technologies including AI, robotic process automation (RPA), and blockchain – technologies expected to drive what has been called the "fourth industrial revolution" (4IR), a tech-fueled, fundamental transformation in industrial processes and a jump in productivity.
In this Q&A, Heath Muchena talks to IhorFeoktistov, the CTO & co-founder of Relevant Software which operates across Europe & USA offering services ranging from software developments, cyber security, artificial intelligence & machine learning to DevOps.

5 indicators to consider when making long-term crypto investment decisions
Workplace culture is changing how businesses operate and is driving the demand for alternative workspaces. The closer we approach the year 2020, the more redundant the office cubicle is becoming. Our attitudes about why, how, and where we work are changing. Unlike previous generations, it can be argued that the workforce of today and the future place a higher premium on self-determination and flexibility than higher salaries.
The global pandemic is changing the way people buy, sell, and interact, and African tech executives are adjusting their business continuity and digital transformation plans accordingly. As countries start to ease lockdown restrictions and gradually introduce phased return-to-work policies, CIOs are increasingly looking beyond the COVID-19 crisis with a view to implementing revamped digital transformation and business continuity plans.
As cloud data centres proliferate in the Middle East, pressure on CIOs to transform legacy infrastructure is increasing. This means enterprise tech leaders have to juggle multiple projects: updating aging infrastructure, ensuring current apps are running optimally, and constantly looking for ways that IT can help boost revenue in the future.
In this Q&A, Stanley Mwangi Chege, CIO of the East Africa-based insurance company Jubilee Insurance explains how to handle crisis-driven digital transformation, and top IT trends confronting tech leaders in 2021.
Africa's data centre infrastructure is becoming more robust every year, and many enterprises try out cloud platforms first with software-as-a-service (SaaS) offerings. Often, the reason to move to the cloud is to deploy AI and business intelligence applications.
As Enterprise Solutions director at Meltwater EMEA based in Cape Town, Julia Nill needs to stay on top of these trends.
