“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 urbanization. The continent’s telecom, banking and finance, oil and gas, and mining verticals also present major ICT opportunities.”
The official from the global advisory services firm also explained that growing public and private sector IT spending, together with maturing and increasingly competitive business environments, are also driving IT services demand.
