The Digital Transformation of Africa

Digital transformation is now a big priority for any ecosystem that wants to play a significant role in the current global digital economy, and this is true for Africa and the individual countries on the continent. There are many encouraging signs of governments and the private sector collaborating on bringing the transformational energy of digital to the citizenry, but there are still challenges especially when the viability of the underlying infrastructure is in question. Still, the successes signal tremendous potential and this panel will discuss how the digital transformation is going and how Africa's digital future will transpire.
