Business leaders and ICT experts from across Southern Africa will convene from March 17 to 19 for the Huawei Tech Summit 2021. The online event aims to unpack the opportunities of digital transformation for African businesses. The event will address the changes, challenges and opportunities presented in the post-pandemic era, and offer practical steps on how to succeed by leveraging on the latest ICT technology.
The pandemic has instituted significant changes to the way organizations and enterprises run. Because of the pandemic, there has been a surge in demand for remote collaboration among different industries such as education, telemedicine, telecommunication, and so on. As the foundation of this changes, digital transformation is slowly, but steadily becoming one of the top requirements for enterprises.
Digital transformation brings huge business opportunities to enterprises. However, the amazing data growth brought about by digital transformation also poses equally significant challenges to these enterprises. Huawei predicts that by 2025, newly-generated data will reach an unprecedented level of 9 ZB within the Sub-Saharan region, which is far beyond today’s data processing capacity.
It is important for business leaders to stay one step ahead. They need to understand the current challenges that organizations are facing, or will be facing in the near future. Additionally, leaders need to address concerns related to establishing reliable and intelligent networks to guarantee service continuity. One aspect that they need to address is how to build a green, more reliable, and intelligent storage system to better realize the value of data. They also need to address how to construct intelligent and green energy systems to ensure business zero downtime, and optimize energy consumption.
The Huawei Tech Summit will not only address the above stated concerns, but will also bring inspiring insights on how to use the latest ICT technology to help the enterprises succeed in the post-pandemic era, all while exploring new trends.
Huawei Tech Summit will explore the latest trends in enterprise networking, data center storage and digital power. A series of inspiring products and solutions will be launched here.
What’s more, industry leaders and top analysts will also come to share the insights, and talk with you about how to leverage latest technology to win in the post-pandemic era.
