Changing market dynamics have pushed Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) providers to expand their product and service offerings, moving away from basic connectivity, voice, and messaging revenues.

"The increasing ICT convergence between the telecoms operators and IT service providers in South Africa is one of the hottest topics right now," said Frost & Sullivan Programme Manager Lakshmi Narayanan. "Enterprises are changing rapidly, embracing the evolution in technology within their operations. This radical change in technology will force enterprises to move away from conventional economic models and to create disruption, requiring changes in their members and value system."

This briefing will discuss emerging enterprise ICT trends and opportunities across key industries in South Africa.

Why you should attend:

  • Learn about the growth of enterprise ICT in key industries in South Africa
  • Listen to and understand the five-year forecast of the enterprise ICT spend and demand across key industries in South Africa
  • Identify the key drivers and restraints of ICT spending across key industries in South Africa

A live question and answer session will follow the presentation.
