As demand for digital transformation grows, data and analytics have new visibility and value in the enterprise — the source of unprecedented opportunity for development in Africa, business decision, innovation and growth. The use of Big Data & Analytics have received significant attention in recent years.
The Sub-Saharan Africa Big Data, Analytics and Africa Development Conference 2019 aims to provide a platform for governments, enterprises, researchers and practitioners to exchange innovative ideas, latest research results, and practice experiences and lessons learned.
