The Invest in Data Centre Africa Summit, a first event of its kind which seeks to explore the next phase of data centre and cloud development across the continent of Africa, will hold in the city of Monaco, France in June 2016.
The Summit will see the discussion of current and future investment in Africa data centres, connectivity via subsea cables and dark fiber, energy supply, cloud, IT investment, risk and the availability of funding.
The program will feature a host of inspiring top level speakers from both investor organizations and operating companies in Africa and internationally.
“Africa infrastructure is a growth story for the next decade,” said Philip Low, Managing Director of BroadGroup.
He added, “We are seeing the emergence of carrier neutral data centres, and importantly IP peering exchanges that will spur hosting and cloud growth over the next 24 months in several countries. But the summit hopes to create more investor led opportunities as well as assess the risk and prospects.”
Infrastructure investment and challenges faced by Africa will take centre stage during the Summit with energy being among them. Case studies and empirical examples will be showcased, contributing to a realistic perspective for data centre investors.
Also at the Summit, BroadGroup, an international consulting company that research and produce Datacloud, will provide a Market Assessment and Outlook for the Africa data centre landscape.
