As the world increasingly exploits information technology for innovative services and competitive advantage, the data centres are now playing a rapidly expanding role in job creation and preservation as well as the overall economic recovery.
Nigeria has witnessed significant investments in data centres being established in the country. And it has often been argued that the availability of world class Data centres in Nigeria is critical infrastructure required for the implementation of the country’s Broadband initiatives.
Hence, the need for the industry journalist association to convene players in this segment of the nation’s ICT sub sector of the economy at this edition of its breakfast series on the theme “Data Centre Operation In Nigeria: Impacts, Benefits And Challenges In a Knowledge Economy.”
The event slated to hold February 16, 2018 at the R-Café Hotel on Isaac John Street, Ikeja GRA, will feature MainOne, as a leading connectivity solutions company, operator of MDX-i Lekki Data Centre.
