Dr. Imad Hoballah, TRA acting chairman and CEO, is participating as a moderator on the panel on Developing countries and cloud computing in the Sixth Annual IGF Meeting that is taking place from the 27th till the 30th of September 2011, at the United Nations Office in Nairobi, Kenya.
Held under the theme of “Internet as a catalyst for change: access, development, freedoms and innovation”, this forum will bring together a broad array of stakeholders to discuss issues, opportunities and unique challenges of developing the understanding and confidence to embrace cloud computing technology in the developing world with a focus on African countries.
The workshop will feature users and providers of cloud services in order to highlight efforts already underway in Africa to use cloud services as a tool to overcome developmental and economic barriers, and to discuss what further steps need to be done to ensure that Africa not only catches up to developed countries, but uses these technologies to leapfrog past long-standing barriers to growth and prosperity.
