"The public and private sectors want South Africa to play a leading role in the fourth industrial revolution. To achieve this, the ICT industry will have to accelerate its acquisition of infrastructure and employee skills. There is also an urgent need to address the gap between the connected and the unconnected. Narrowing this gap will ensure the meaningful participation of all citizens in the emerging new economy." — Senior Research and Consulting Manager Sabelo Dlamini, IDC South Africa.
