Jo’burg to host 7th IT Leaders Africa Summit

 

Now in its 7th year running the IT Leaders Africa Summit, South Africa’s most respected CIO event, will take place on the 15th and 16th March at Vodacom World in Johannesburg. By Staff Writer


The IT landscape is swiftly evolving and continually facing disruptions which makes it incredibly difficult for CIOs, CTOs, directors and managers in the information technology space to keep up.

The IT Leaders Africa Summit is a meeting place for IT and business leaders across all industries: FMCG, mining, manufacturing, finance, retail and many more.  It is designed to provide attendees with the latest key insights, the tools needed to re-look at IT strategies, advice on how to update skill sets and the latest in trends and technologies.

“We are excited to host the 7th annual IT Leaders Africa Summit. With budget cuts looming and more pressure than ever on the IT leader to reduce overall costs and improve efficiency, the synergy between an IT head and the business is paramount. The summit is about building relationships, meeting industry peers and networking,” says Shannon Mackrill, Joint MD, Kinetic.

The event will assist delegates to align IT with business priorities and provide the ideal setting for engagement, networking and relationship building with like-minded individuals in the African IT industry.

The event will feature 40 high level speakers, 250 attendees and many blue chip sponsors.

“What really attracted me to the event is the industry nature of it and it really bringing together leaders from all over at an executive level, rather than a general level,” says Franz Hirschberg, IT Director, Pernod Ricard Sub Saharan Africa.

This year the agenda will focus on digital disruption and its impact on organisations, the evolution of technology, the effective management of data centres, cost reduction through the adoption of innovative technology and how to ensure a sustainable network.
