Panel at the last edition of the IT News Africa Innovation Dinner

Africa’s foremost ICT publication IT News Africa (, today announced the theme of their next Innovation Dinner as “Consumerization of IT- Rethinking your device strategy”.

The Innovation Dinner Series, an event that takes place every two months, provides a platform for networking amongst Africa’s ICT professionals, entrepreneurs and businesses.

“It is a brilliant and great networking opportunity. I keep attending because you get appraised on new market trends and a plus is the opportunity to socialise and catch up with colleagues in the industry,” says Manoj Bhoola, MD of Avanade South Africa.

Tablet computers, smartphones, 4G, social media, gaming, desktop virtualization, and other technology innovations are bringing possibilities and challenges to IT and the workplace like never before. As some corporations embrace mobile devices and others start to allow employees to buy their own hardware, IT must go beyond desktop virtualization to manage risk and control performance.

This next IT News Africa Innovation Dinner will give business executives and technology decision makers a holistic view of how personal technology is changing and infusing the workplace with the ability to drive innovation and productivity to new heights. Embracing this trend is critical for attracting and empowering the next generation workforce, retaining customers and creating business advantage.

ITNewsAfrica will be hosting its first Innovation Dinner for this year on 15 February at the Hyatt Regency in Rosebank.

Those interested can register on the Innovation Dinner website, or for more information, contact Admire Kabasa on 011 448 2240 or
