CIOs looking for a challenge (or even new employment) might want to look to the African continent. Nigel Moulton, chief technology officer for the Europe, Middle East, Africa region, for VCE (the Virtual Computing Environment Company) says in a separate IT Africa article, “To capitalize on their growing economies and competitiveness, companies in African countries like [Nigeria and Kenya] need to embrace converged cloud infrastructure because it overcomes [the] challenges [of providing a modern IT infrastructure].
IT Africa also reports, “The Kenyan government hopes that IT-enabled services will have created 7,500 direct BPO jobs by 2030, enabling Kenya to become one of the top 3 BPO destinations in Africa. Keith Griffin is an award-winning business writer and editor with more than 30 years experience as a journalist. Wires weren’t laid because cellular service proved more effective and cost efficient.


CIOs in Africa could benefit from the knowledge already gleaned by their counterparts in Europe and North America. Other industries form part of the government’s plan too: tourism, agriculture, wholesale and retail, manufacturing and IT services. However, not everyone is aware of the benefits of the cloud and due to cyber-security concerns most companies tend to focus on developing services with private cloud rather than public or hybrid solutions,” the article says.
Moulton quoted from research by the University of Nairobi and Microsoft that says the impact of the technology in Kenya may currently be limited, “and with the security concerns being high on the agenda, they need access to technologies such as a converged cloud infrastructure and the expertise that comes with it from vendors such as VCE to ensure that their deployments are successful and become widespread.
At the moment more companies use private cloud (39 percent), perhaps because of the security concerns.


Yet 90 percent of those surveyed thought that the Kenyan cloud services market is ready, but there remains a need to educate people about the technology, which is misunderstood at the moment,” he says.
