To Cloud or not to Cloud? Discussing the pros and cons of Cloud adoption

• • • •

What are the necessary risk assessments that need to be carried out when making the transition to Cloud? Why is the current market for third-party data centres and Cloud services in the region still relatively small? How is this likely to change in the next 2-5 years? How can Cloud models be made as clear and straightforward as possible, in order to drive uptake of Cloud adoption? • What is driving the growing popularity of Hybrid Cloud solutions in the region? Nardus Breitenbach, Executive consultant in Enterprise Architecture & Strategy

Making the case for a community cloud system that would provide a compelling commercial solution for broadcasters across sub-Saharan Africa as they each prepare towards the irrevocable switch from analogue to digital television. In order to ensure the successful transition into a commercially viable digital ecosystem, broadcasters throughout sub-Saharan Africa will need to establish a future-proof, geopolitically secure storage content archiving and storage system which would as well facilitate the multi-platform distribution and monetisation of each broadcaster’s respective content libraries. George Twumasi, Chief Executive Officer, The Africa Broadcast Network

CIO & CTO Focus Session: How can CxOs in Africa tackle the Cloud?

• Are CIOs in sync with the business issues faced by CEOs? • Has the introduction of hybrid Cloud fast-tracked adoption? • How can you tackle the security and infrastructure challenges that have plagued CIOs in the region? • How can you be as transparent as possible? • How can you communicate the benefits of moving to the Cloud?

Private Cloud for the Public Sector: Definitions, Perceptions, Rationale & Applications

Public Sector

09.40

South African municipalities face a very particular set of challenges with regard to service delivery in relation to the collective societal demand. A significant underlying cause for this is the lack of financial governance, and especially a lack of the required supporting technology and know-how. Within this particular framework, the time has come for serious consideration of the concept of a so-called “community cloud” created specifically for municipalities. This cloud infrastructure will have all the characteristics of a private cloud, with the exception that it is purposefully designed to serve municipalities in a secure, dedicated and performance managed provisioning ecosystem.
