Innovation Dinner to address Nigeria IT leaders’ challenges

This year’s IT News Africa Innovation Dinner to be held on the 16th of September, 2015 for senior technology executives in Lagos will address the many challenges faced by today’s Information Technology (IT) leaders in Nigeria, and provide a roadmap towards delivering sustainable business, ITRealms reports.

The Africa’s technology news leader said that Dimension Data, an ICT services and solutions provider in conjunction with VCE, an EMC Federation Company and  world market leader in converged infrastructure, will be the lead sponsor of the Dinner which has the theme: “Transform to Better Perform: Information Technology’s role in driving competitive advantage, customer value and business growth in an uncertain economic environment.”

According to information, the Dinner will also review a recent World Bank report  that warns that Nigeria will face a series of tough challenges in 2015 and 2016. These challenges include the looming prospect of higher borrowing costs as the West African country adapts to a new era of low prices for oil and other key commodities.

Low oil prices, ITRealms gathered, have considerably reduced growth in commodity-exporting countries (Angola, Nigeria), and also slowed activity in non-oil sectors. In responding to the challenging business environment, senior managements are  increasingly looking to IT to provide innovation and transformation, reduce costs and improve business efficiency.

These challenges will require a new vision and operating model for IT infrastructure and service delivery, one that is far more responsive, adaptive, scalable and efficient than yesterday’s version.
