Africa’s technology news leader, IT News Africa (www.itnewsafrica.com), today announced that the next Innovation Dinner (www.innovationdinner.co.za) will be held in partnership with IBM, in a special evening focussing on cloud services.
To be held at the Michelangelo Hotel in Sandton on 8 March 2012, IBM will use the special event to highlight their Smart Cloud solution.
Based on various IBM offerings, the SmartCloud architecture and platform is for private, public and hybrid clouds for Enterprise, and delivers a robust set of services including compute, storage, mail and backup.
“Increasing numbers of organisations are looking to leverage the scale and flexibility of public cloud, but are concerned about losing control of resources outside of their four walls. This is causing organisations to embrace a hybrid or shared services cloud model, where they can more easily manage some resources in-house, while also using other applications externally as a service,” says Werner Lindemann, Vice President of Global Technology Services for IBM Sub-Saharan Africa.
The bi-monthly IT News Africa Innovation Dinner series is the premier gathering for ICT Executives across all industries in Africa. Designed for Africa’s ICT professionals, entrepreneurs and senior business people, the event is a great opportunity for networking, acquiring information and strategic planning.
Confirmed speakers for the event include:
- Tammy Bortz, Director at Werkmans Attorneys, a specialist in information technology law and regulatory compliance.
- Mark Walker, IDC Middle East Africa (MEA) and Turkey Director for Insights and Vertical Industries.
- Werner Lindemann, Vice President of Global Technology Services for IBM Sub-Saharan Africa.
- Gordon Love, Regional director for Africa at Symantec.
