On the 18th -19th February 2015, AITEC Africa will convene the 5th edition of the ICT Summit at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies (KSMS), Nairobi. The summit will aid in turning the long heralded ICT revolution to start delivering results that improve the quality of life for the region’s citizens and lift its world class status.
“The summit themed ‘Turning visions into reality’ aims at providing valuable catalyst in education and a marketing platform for the ICT industry. It will also bring together different players in the ICT community to interact with each other,” said Chairman of AITEC Africa, Sean Moroney. “This summit will be different from 2014 as emphasis will be on young innovators, who will get the opportunity to showcase their innovations, products and services in order to attract investors to buying their products,” Moroney added.
AITEC East Africa 2015 seeks to provide a unique stand for ICT professionals and managers from all sectors to gather information, contacts and knowledge to take back to their organization’s to empower them to accelerate delivery of results. In addition, the summit will act as a clearing house to point out synergies, link initiatives, form partnerships and avoid duplication of projects and waste of resources.
Through an intensive partnership programme, the summit will bring together all stakeholders to ensure that there is a full display of regional and national ICT initiatives, whether by government, private sector and development partners, will be represented, explained, examined and hopefully priorities assigned, synergies identified and action accelerated.
AITEC will be hosting a Media Briefing & Partner Networking Breakfast on February 18, 2015 where all Summit partners and sponsors will be taken through a presentation on the ‘role of the Board and Chief Experience Officers (CXOs) in aligning technology with the business.’ The presentation will examine the seven mission-critical business drivers that IT projects must always be tied to.
The summit, sponsored by Hitachi Data Systems has attracted ICT innovators, sponsors, exhibitors and more than 500 delegates.
Also in attendance was John Kinuthia, CEO, CIO ASAP Consulting, Kenya, Christopher Bell, Channel Manager-Africa Interactive Intelligence, and Joseph Mureithi, SEACOM Country Manager among others.
