Africa pace upon uncovering Datacentre- Cloud next gen-developments


Datacentre & Cloud Infrastructure Summit 2022  – Africa, a two-day virtual mega-scale summit, focused on Datacentre & Cloud Infrastructure will shed light on Africa’s market dynamics and its valiant effort towards enabling data sovereignty, all the while facilitating collaboration between the seeking organizations and the top technology providers from the industry.

Amidst rampant technological disruptions, Africa needs a robust data centre & cloud landscape to power its growing digital-savvy population and businesses. With the continent’s datacentre market expected to reach USD 5 billion by 2026, global cloud providers have entered a seesaw battle to capitalize on the ultra-lucrative market and provide their services through the newly established datacentres.  

To accelerate Africa’s growth and post-receiving phenomenal success in ASEAN and India, Tradepass is thrilled to bring its flagship Datacentre & Cloud conference i.e., Datacentre and Cloud Infrastructure Summit (DCCI) in Africa, virtually on 5 – 6 April 2022.

One of our key speakers, Thelma Quaye, Head – of Digital Infrastructure and Capacity Building, Smart Africa, is of the opinion, “The governance of our digital infrastructures is becoming a central part of our States sovereignty, of our economies’ prosperity, and of our people’s freedom and rights. Creating the right framework to deliver secure and powerful datacentre and cloud services has therefore rightfully shifted in the center of policy priorities around the globe. Africa needs to have its own voice in this global conversation.”

Following their participation announcement, Talal Al Kaissi, CEO, of G42 Cloud stated, “The African continent has seen rapid economic growth despite pressing challenges. This could not have been possible without embracing innovation, and in many cases leapfrogging when it came to technological solutions.

With our intelligent data lake and AI optimized sovereign cloud solutions, we’re confident that we can expand opportunities and drive digitization across a wide range of industries – to propel humanity ahead.”
