AITEC East Africa ICT Summit 2012

24-25 October 2012

Oshwal Centre, Westlands Nairobi


2012 Conference Subject Areas


The Summit will focus on deploying ICT solutions to improve the quality of life for East Africa’s citizens and empower them to export their knowledge and skills. Specialised focus areas will include:

Building Smart Cities: The region’s cities are hampered by inefficient management and infrastructure, reducing the productivity of their workforces and degrading the quality of life for all levels of society. The smart application of ICT solutions can dramatically transform these cities from their post-colonial quagmire of corruption, maladministration, poor planning and under-performance. The Summit will act as a clearing house for international and regional best practices in order to identify short-term fixes and medium and long-term strategies to create smart cities that serve the needs of their citizens.

Developing Smart Societies: Deploying ICT solutions to increase the quality of life for both urban and rural populations. Delivering improved services in healthcare, education, agriculture and housing.

Creating Smart Enterprises: Smart enterprises are competitive and profitable. In order to compete locally, regionally and internationally Africa’s large enterprises, as well as its SMEs, need to plan and implement world-class ICT management systems. The Summit will provide a platform to take a broad perspective on latest enterprise systems

Exporting Smart Skills: Building an outsourcing industry in East Africa that capitalises in the region’s expanding pool of ICT expertise, a tech-savvy workforce and customer-centric interpersonal skills.

These sub-themes will be covered from different perspectives in each of the conference streams:

* Cloud Computing World
