IDC East Africa CIO Summit 2023

Enabling the Digital Economy's Leaders

IDC

In 2023, we are going further, together!
Join us for the 10th Edition.

The digital economy continues to expand in scale and sophistication at an unprecedented rate, driving the transformation of citizen, customer, and employee experiences and the rise of digitally enabled services such as remote healthcare, distance learning, remote work, and mobile banking.

Overview
Digital-native firms, equipped with new business models and armed with substantial venture capital funding, have disrupted supply chains in numerous industries, fueling growth in areas such as ecommerce, direct-to-consumer services, digital payments, and cloud kitchens. With the metaverse and Web3 paradigms on the horizon, further disruption is expected to individual, enterprise, and industrial digital experiences.

As the share of the digital economy becomes increasingly significant, major governments around the world are beginning to develop dedicated strategies to enable its measurement and further development. Creating suitable regulatory environments and enriching the talent pool will be critical to the success of these strategies. Today, technology is playing an ever-increasing role in enabling, measuring, and reporting on sustainability initiatives and diversity and inclusion drives, and government and business leaders are moving these issues to the top of their digital agendas.

The IDC East Africa CIO Summit 2023 will bring together the country's foremost IT and telecom leaders, digital government pioneers, digital regulators and authorities, and industry thought leaders.

Hosting East Africa's most prominent CTOs, and CIOs, the event will examine the current state of the digital economy, assess its ongoing impact on citizens, customers, employees, and operations, address the key challenges that need to be overcome, and outline proven best practices and strategies for driving future success.
