Impact of ICTon SMEs in Africa

Michel, Bezy, Associate Director of Carnegie Mellon University, Kigali, Rwanda, will give a talk entitled, "Impact of ICT on SMEs in Africa".  IT Vendors mainly target their technology and services at large enterprises where they can deliver greater scalability, elasticity and flexibility in their IT infrastructure, reducing cost in an environment under budget pressure.  However these benefits come at a cost of long technical implementation and complex integration with existing IT.  This colloquium will look at how Cloud Computing when integrated with the deployment of broadband internet and the penetration of mobile technology in Africa can deliver immediate value to SMEs.
