Taking place on the 8th May 2012 at the Sandton Sun Hotel, Johannesburg, South Africa, Cloud Computing World Forum Africa is part of the Cloud Computing World Series with conferences worldwide including London, New York, Sao Paulo, Mumbai, Dubai and Hong Kong. It offers prime opportunities to discuss the latest topics in cloud, including security, mobile, applications, communications, virtualisation, CRM and much, much more.
SABC is a state-owned broadcaster in South Africa, providing 18 radio stations as well as 3 television broadcasts to the general public. As CIO of SABC, Potlaski is responsible for overseeing, managing, and coordinating the enterprise IT strategy and implementation. He also provides thought leadership on architecting and the provision of technology services in a rapidly transforming media and broadcasting business.
Cloud Computing has become a truly mainstream form of IT delivery in the last few years, but with the evolution of the industry moving at lightning-fast pace, it’s important for businesses and organisations of all sizes to be given a clear picture of how this form of technology can improve and develop their use of IT – both in the workplace and on the move.
With over 400 people in attendance from across the region, and a number of top global exhibitors and expert speakers giving focalised talks in our large keynote theatre, the 2012 Cloud Computing World Forum Africa is expected to be a one of the most anticipated events on the region's IT calendar.
