Just retuned from Mozambique where I was a Keynote Speaker for AITEC Africa, www.aitecafrica.com. This year event was held at the National Convention Centre of Mozambique, opened by Sean Moroney the Chairman of AITEC Africa and held under the auspices of the Ministry of Science and Technology, represented by Americo Muchanga. AITEC Mozambique was outstanding, unique and informative. Without a doubt from my experience itâ€™s the best and leading ICT platform in Africa today.Â This unique and remarkable African Event has demonstrated the progress on ICT in Africa, especially in Mozambique. It also reflected the commitment of the Government of Mozambique, particularly the Minister of Science and Technology, Dr Venancio Massingue.
The events was not only marked by the presence of top African CEOâ€™s coming from the Southern and Eastern Africa regions with varied expertise on Mobile Technology, Banking, Investment Banking, Management Services and IT Governance in Africa but also Executives and Software companies, vendors travelling from all over the world to attend this event.
Presentations, talks varied from Rebranding Africa via Social Media, East African Internet connectivity, IT Governance, Data Management, Content Management, Marketing, and New Media to the importance of e-Government in Africa. Mozambique is one of Africaâ€™s more progressive countries in e-government and was recently awarded fourth place in Africa for successfully implementing it.
AITEC Africa is a growing platform in Africa, the most powerful series of ICT events in Africa. Founded 21 years ago by Sean Moroney, South African-born and managed by his beloved wife Helen Moroney and their sons, the AITEC team really rocks as they understand the information needs of ICT in Africa. More than 450 people attended this Mozambique event not to count Exhibitors. Â The event attendees varied from business professionals in Mozambique to establish and reputable organisation in Africa such as the Accounting Firm Giant KPMG, Microsoft Africa, SAP Africa, Oracle Africa, Dimension Data, VODACOM and SEACOM, also sponsors at this event.
Whilst Africa is dominating the world news at present, these sort of events need to continue to take place in the whole continent as they bring people from all walks of life to meet, collaborate, share and learn. ICT solutions are key to the sustainable progress in Africa. AITEC Africa is really leading the way in Africa.
