The Cloud East Africa Summit, proudly supported by the Kenya ICT Board, KITOS and the Eastern Africa Economic Chambers of Commerce (EAECC) will be held in Nairobi on 7 September 2012. The strategic industry event is hosted by international business-to-business conferencing company, Kinetic Events.

Building a successful cloud architecture compromises many different elements that all have to work together, while each has its own complexities. Cloud computing is revolutionising the manner in which IT and business services are being delivered and managed. With the modern technological advancement, enterprises run the risk of overestimating short-term effects, while underestimating the long-term benefits.

The importance of understanding the value and impact of IT developments could see companies investing in capabilities that could potentially compromise their competitiveness within the respective industries. Cloud computing is becoming a highly competitive market, and cloud solution providers must deliver high-quality, business-grade services to differentiate themselves from other low-cost commodity cloud computing providers within the industry. This means great care must be taken in the design and planning of the cloud service to ensure that services can be delivered and managed cost-effectively and to high service levels.

The educational summit features a comprehensive, innovative and interactive conference agenda to address critical cloud computing and operational challenges relating to enterprise industry issues, and exhibiting best practice case studies from industry experts. The informative summit agenda has been strategically developed, providing expert-led interactive keynote sessions featuring internationally renowned guests who will address topical industry issues. Industry focused workshop sessions will educate attendees on various effective solutions in delivering IT projects and services enabling business growth and innovation, advancing goals of operational excellence and powerfully demonstrating the value of cloud computing to the enterprise.

The must-attend educational IT industry event of the year provides delegates with invaluable resources, ideas and examples that you can apply immediately to leverage the cloud, helping you to maximise performance, minimise costs and improve the scale of your projects. Cloud Summit East Africa is an unrivalled, annual and a cost effective marketing solution opportunity; concluded in intimate business meetings, direct with your customers, clients and prospects.
