Africa technology keeps progressing

Africa is unique and home to seven of the ten fastest growing economies globally and, from a mobile point of view, exhibits the second fastest growth outside of Asia. Decision makers across ICT businesses on the continent have gathered on the first day of ITNewsAfrica’s Tech Demo Africa 2013 to endorse the message that Africa’s growth will reach a level to rival that of Europe.

Tech Demo Africa 2013 is an industry platform that offers businesses the opportunity to showcase their products and services, and is targeted at key industry influencers, business leaders, as well as local and international media.

The event will focus on two main areas: Enterprise Technology and Mobile Applications, incorporating discussion of burning IT issues such as Mobility, BYOD, Cloud, Big Data, Security, Enterprise Innovation and Startup funding.

CIOs and other executive level decision makers are afforded an opportunity to view product demos that directly address their challenges.

Officially opening the event, Yaw Owusu, CEO of Cyber CITY in Ghana, referred to the announcement of a deal between The Nigerian National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) and MasterCard at the World Economic Forum on Africa about the roll-out of 13 million MasterCard-branded National Identity Smart Cards with electronic payment capability as a pilot program.
