Exchange of best practices and gaining expert insights from top cloud strategists was the key focus for Oracle customers who took part in Oracle’s two day long Africa Executive Summit that concluded yesterday in Mauritius.
Dozens of Oracle customers gathered to understand various aspects of the cloud adoption process including capacity building, innovation, security and the ability to leverage Internet of Things (IoT) for driving business growth with Oracle cloud solutions.
Janusz Naklicki, vice-president: Russia, Africa and Central Europe at Oracle, comments: “Cloud adoption in Africa is growing at a rapid pace as organizations now realise that cloud offers them speed, value and better ROI.
“Africa is a priority market for us and the Africa Executive Summit is in line with our commitment to further drive this interest and support our customers in Africa in their journey to the cloud.”
The two-day summit included a host of information packed activities including panel discussions, customer testimonials and keynote addresses by top Oracle executives.
