Africa’s technology news leader IT News Africa, yesterday announced that Dimension Data in partnership with VCE will be the lead sponsor of the next edition of the IT News Africa Innovation Dinner Series in Nigeria,
It said that senior technology executives will convene soon in Lagos for another edition of the Innovation Dinner series, under the theme: Transform to Better Perform: Information Technology’s role in driving competitive advantage, customer value and business growth in an uncertain economic environment.
A recent World Bank report warns that Nigeria will face a series of tough challenges in 2015 and 2016.
These challenges include the looming prospect of higher borrowing costs as the West African country adapts to a new era of low prices for oil and other key commodities.
This, according to the World Bank Group’s latest Global Economic Prospects (GEP) report released recently.
Low oil prices have considerably reduced growth in commodity-exporting countries (Angola, Nigeria), and also slowed activity in non-oil sectors.
In responding to the challenging business environment, senior management is increasingly looking to IT to provide innovation and transformation, reduce costs and improve business efficiency.
These challenges will require a new vision and operating model for IT infrastructure and service delivery—one that is far more responsive, adaptive, scalable and efficient than yesterday’s version.
This Innovation Dinner will address the many challenges faced by today’s IT leaders in Nigeria, and provide a roadmap towards delivering sustainable business.
