Understanding and grasping the opportunities offered by the acceleration of digital in Africa, and drawing inspiration for the future. Lire la suite
In recent years, several factors have been stepping up the influence and reach of digital in Africa. It would have been easy just to pick out those related to the Internet of Things, the progress of digital in agriculture and the success of African start-ups, but those subjects are very different from one another. In actual fact, they simply illustrate that there are three separate factors accelerating the digitisation of Africa, and bringing about the technological leaps that the continent is currently experiencing.
This book sheds light on the nature of these three catalysts, which include blockchain technologies, the explosion of data and the Internet of Things. Meanwhile, various players including donors, governments, companies and start-ups have joined forces to provide solutions based on new uses, especially in the agriculture and energy sectors.
Drawing on the experience of the Africa and International Development team at BearingPoint, this book offers an overview of the real changes that are happening in the African economy. It will help decision-makers, investors and entrepreneurs gain insight into the inspiration and opportunities that a continent in the midst of a digital revolution can provide.
