MainOne, MTN Cloud and RackCenter should invest efforts to build critical building blocks of computing elements, the primitives, in their data center businesses with specific focus on Nigeria and Africa. This will help them attract developers/partners to expand their operations. The promise is economies of scale through higher adoption of their platforms. As this adoption happens, these companies can enjoy massive “tax” which is simply collection of fees imposed on companies that depend on their platforms. Africa-themed primitives like procurement primitives, anti-corruption primitives, etc will be enablers for this differentiation in the market.
