The International Data Corporation (IDC) has confirmed Nigeria is leading African economies that are increasingly embracing IT services solutions in a bid to support growth initiatives.
The IDC noted that the government in Africa is becoming one of the biggest investors in ICT in general, and IT services in particular
According to Lise Hagen, an IDC research manager in South Africa, “governments are using ICT to enable service delivery while eGovernment and mGovernment initiatives are high on the agenda for driving etransformation and addressing issues around rapid urbanisation. The continent’s telecom, banking and finance, oil and gas, and mining verticals also present major ICT opportunities.”
“Governments in Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana, Botswana, and elsewhere are implementing national ICT policies that are driving the adoption of technology,”
