Cloud Africa 2018
Nairobi movie hire and digital accessories store, July 2011
Then …
Now…
Hub,
Incubator,
Accelerator,
Co-sharing,
Workspace
… only the
beginning.
African
innovations
transforming
farming,
fishing,
financial
services
The Cloud Africa
research project
Interviews with 300 IT
decision-makers at medium
and large enterprises in Kenya,
Nigeria and South Africa.
Cloud computing has taken off
dramatically across Africa’s
major markets, but its benefits
are experienced very differently
in each region.
Cloud is not a country
Use of the Cloud among
medium and large
organisations has more than
doubled in five years.
Fewer than 50% in 2013.
In 2018, use is pervasive.
Massive intensification
Companies in three of
Africa’s major information
technology markets are
making up for lost time in
allocating budgets to cloud.
Cloud is the leapfrog
Government at the party?
Respondents in Nigeria (80%) and
Kenya (75%) named Business
efficiency and Scalability by far the
most important benefit.
Only 61% in South Africa.
Dictates of infrastructure
In SA, Time-to-market or speed of
deployment came in as the most
prominent, at 68% of respondents.
Only 48% of companies in Kenya
and 28% in Nigeria named it as a
key benefit.
All about competition
Internationally, cloud is ideal for
establishing a global footprint. In
these 3 markets, benefits are being
recognised, but a long way from
being a priority. The cloud is here,
but not yet its full benefits.
Not yet a Netflix
Nigeria is impact central
Cloud = Innovation
Service apps critical to 68% of
Nigerian, 67% of Kenyan
companies; only 40% in SA.
43% in SA named HR apps as
critical; Kenya 19%; Nigeria 10%.
Apps reveal cloud
psyche
The Word Cloud
Ultimately, the cloud is about
better ways of doing business.
That is reflected in cloud priorities
and budgets across Africa.
Business is a country
Thank you
