Lecture Abstract: The New Nomads and Cloud Computing in Africa

The Nomads of the Sahara are called the "children of the clouds" and in Africa, clouds announce the rain that brings hope. A new type of cloud is bringing hope for the next generation of African innovators and unleashing their creativity: Cloud computing. The integration of mobile, broadband internet and cloud computing is opening new opportunities for SMEs, a key development sector for Africa.
