In the last few years, most parts of the world have morphed into an electronically interdependent economic unit where a disruption in one marketplace affects the others. New technologies have emerged, transforming the ways we do business and, consequently, redesigning the world. Innovation in disruptive technologies pushes new and more agile firms to set new benchmarks, and forces established companies to incorporate evolving breakthroughs into their models or re-invent themselves to stay competitive.
Innovation thus remains a key driver in wealth creation, but the way it happens is changing as a result of new technologies, processes and tools. As social media networks advance, outsourcing ideas to the crowd has become common, while inter-company R&D that pools resources together is a new normal. From agriculture to print media, finance to mortgage and across sectors, industries, and disciplines, the world is being redesigned.
Two technologies that are playing major roles in this redesigning are mobile and cloud computing. And we will be discussing them in the context of Africa. Right here on Tekedia on August 27, 2011, we will host a Virtual Conference, titled
Africa In Mobile + Cloud Era
You will watch feeds from experts and pros as they discuss the future on mobility and cloud computing and how that will affect Africa. No ticket, no travel, it is all in the cloud. We guess the best way to experience mobile and cloud is to do a conference in the domains of mobile and cloud!
A keynote will be delivered by our Founder. The exact time will be communicated very soon.
For questions and comments, email [email protected] This is going to be huge, and we promise to offer you a good time.
