Africa accounts for less than 1% of the total available global data center capacity. This lack of infrastructure limits data collection, access, and usage. At the same time, very few organizations on the continent have already put in place data strategies that encourage experimentation, learning, and risk-taking. As a result, the private sector struggles to turn data into a competitive advantage. This challenge is today exacerbated by the need for greater innovation during the COVID-19 pandemic. How should be transformed African businesses and governments so they truly drive innovation from data? And how to increase collaboration across the private and public sectors to do so?

This webinar is part of a series of 6 webinars dedicated solely to business leaders operating in Africa and organized by the AFRICA CEO FORUM in partnership with Huawei.
