About the Country

South Africa has one of the larges ICT markets in Africa by value. It shows technological leadership in the mobile software field, security software as well as electronic banking services. As an increasingly important contributor to South Africa’s GDP, the country’s ICT and electronics sector is both sophisticated and developing. The South African Government and the Financial sector continue to be the largest player when it comes to IT spending. South Africa’s ICT products and services industry is penetrating the fast-growing African market. South African companies and locally based subsidiaries of international companies have supplied most of the new fixed and wireless telecoms networks established across the continent in recent years.

In line with this vision, The World CIO 200 Summit 2020 will bring together the digital leaders who have gone the extra mile in living up to the expectations of their organization and thereby the nation. Join the country’s top CIOs at The World CIO Summit 2020 as we divulge industry pivotal areas through our focused keynotes, TECHTalk and expert panel discussions.
