Nigeria’s IT leaders confirm Innovation Dinner attendance


The cloud computing competitive landscape is evolving fast, with a growing number of providers emerging from every corner of the globe. Although the notion of delivering IT as a service is well received in the enterprise market, it takes more than aspiration to deliver on a promise…and more importantly, how does your business survive the cloud technology frenzy and thrive in these turbulent times?
