IT Leaders Africa Summit | Enabling alignment and collaboration around every corporate initiative as the CEO of Technology

IT Leaders Africa is the premier CIO and business technology summit where top industry leaders meet to discuss the most current trends affecting key players in the IT sector.  The summit has evolved over the ten years of its existence, just as the role of the CIO has transformed, and offers an invaluable platform to engage with industry leaders and practitioners on the latest trends and technology developments forever altering the strategic function of the IT division.

AfriSecure Cyber Security Track: This dedicated track aims to identify the challenges involved with keeping businesses and data secure from threats.

2019 will again feature the AfriSecure Cyber Security Track to address  the mounting pressure and concern in the industry as cyber-attacks become more common and the amount of data stored online increases (not only in volume but also in sensitivity) most industries are naturally growing concerned at the exponential growth of cybercrime.

Enabling alignment and collaboration around every corporate initiative as the CEO of Technology

the role of the modern day, transformative CIO is rapidly evolving at the same time, becoming the “CEO of Technology,” with organizations shifting from cost-centers to service providers and revenue enablers. As part of this evolved role, the CIO needs to lead the charge that articulates the value of technology with the “why” metrics instead of being overly enamored with the technical “how.” CIOs need to be able to clearly articulate to the CEO and Board how their strategic initiatives are aligned and empowering the business as well as instill confidence in their C-suite peers, so they are viewed as a “trusted advisor” on many fronts
