IDC IT Forum 2017 | Events | IDC CEMA

The African region is expected to be one of the world's fastest growing IT markets over the coming years. The growth in these markets will be driven by tangible economic stability and resilience supported by increased government spending. The biggest verticals in the region — contributing to nearly 74% of overall Africa IT spending in 2017 — are the consumer, public, communications, and finance sectors, but looking ahead, the fastest growing verticals will be the transportation, public, and energy sectors, as much of the large-scale infrastructure upgrade projects planned by the region's governments are focused on these areas.

Against this backdrop, the IDC IT Forum offers a comprehensive, up-to-date, and reliable stage for the more than 100 IT professionals in attendance to discuss strategic IT decisions based on best practices and sound technology. By enabling the region's leading IT lights to collaborate, connect, and inspire, this gathering will provide an unrivalled platform for sharing ideas and establishing a true peer-to-peer community.

 And with the world's leading IT vendors displaying their pioneering new products and services, this groundbreaking exposition will provide an ideal opportunity to map out areas of concern and take steps toward addressing them by mutually exploring strategies for improving efficiency, fostering innovation, reducing costs, and increasing business competitiveness.
