Enabling cloud and AI to build a fully connected and intelligent Africa

The world is moving towards a new era of digitalisation, with technologies such as cloud computing, big data, artificial intelligence (AI) and IOT. With the Cloud 2.0 era, we are not only talking about efficiency, and cost reduction, we are talking about the data and understanding the data. Once you’re in the cloud, how do you take advantage of it so your business can operate at an entirely new level? Moreover, we believe AI will become the dominant application area of cloud computing, and cloud computing will become the main infrastructure for future AI.
