[Webinar] Data centers & cloud services : can Africa catch up?
Data centers are the main enablers of the digital economy, which is growing two and a half times faster than global GDP. Today Africa accounts for less than 1% of the world’s data centers supply and does not have the capacity to store, process and control its data. Yet Africa is potentially the most attractive continent for data center investment. To tap into this potential, providers need sufficient supply of suitably-located land, water, power and optical fiber. How can the continent make up for its data center deficit ? What role can governments play to enable Africa’s cloud and data center ecosystem and to enhance digital independence? 

Key Points :
- Creating more data centers : how to capitalise on energy innovation, secure resources supply and attract investors ?
- Digital independance, infrastructure development : what role should governments play ?
- Cloud computing : a key success factor for African start-ups ?
