The anticipated 3rd annual Cloud and Virtualisation Africa Summit will be held at the Hilton Hotel in Sandton, Johannesburg, from 10 to 11 October 2012. The event is hosted by international business-to-business conferencing company, Kinetic Events.

There is an ever-growing demand for a mobile workforce, with the ability to connect to the corporate network at anytime, anywhere; using any mobile or hand held device. As this demand continues to grow, enterprises require smart mobility cloud solutions; with the goal to reduce costs, increase control and successfully mitigate potential security risks. Leveraging modern technological advancements, together with a proven, industry leading management platform, mobility within the cloud provides enterprises with an advanced portfolio of mobility cloud services, focusing on communications and IT security, and empowering the enterprise to enhance the experience.

The summit aims to address how industry challenges can be overcome through enterprise IT organisation, innovation and the alignment of technology. The interactive format of the summit includes a cutting edge agenda offering strategic workshop sessions featuring industry thought leaders and innovative solution providers; expert-led interactive keynote sessions presented by internationally renowned guests, innovative networking and interactive discussion sessions, and an invaluable industry solution providers showcase area.

The global trend in the emergence of cloud computing as a paradigm for further economic development opens immense enterprise opportunities for the African industry. Cloud analytics is an advanced feature, allowing developers and administrators to explore performance and behaviours of the operating system, including applications running in real time; a capability which enterprise users find particularly useful.
