Kenya’s ICT sector is set to take center stage at the Connected Summit 2023, as counties across the country come together to discuss their ICT roadmaps. The event, which is scheduled to take place in Nairobi from 23-24 March 2023, will provide a platform for county governments to showcase their ICT initiatives and exchange ideas on how to leverage technology for improved service delivery.
The Connected Summit has become a flagship event in Kenya’s ICT calendar, bringing together stakeholders from across the industry to discuss the latest trends and developments in technology. This year’s event will focus on the theme “Transforming Kenya through Digital Innovation”, highlighting the role of technology in driving economic growth and improving livelihoods.
County governments have a crucial role to play in the development of Kenya’s ICT sector. They are responsible for delivering essential services to citizens, and technology can play a key role in enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of these services. County governments have also been tasked with implementing the National ICT Masterplan, which aims to promote the development of a vibrant and sustainable ICT sector in Kenya.
At the Connected Summit, county governments will have the opportunity to showcase their ICT initiatives and share best practices with their peers. They will also be able to engage with leading technology companies and learn about the latest innovations in areas such as cloud computing, cybersecurity, and big data analytics.
Some of the topics that are expected to be discussed at the summit include the use of mobile technology for citizen engagement, the role of ICT in agriculture and health, and the importance of data analytics for evidence-based decision making. The summit will also feature keynote speeches from industry experts, panel discussions, and interactive sessions.
By sharing their ICT roadmaps and exchanging ideas with their peers, county governments can accelerate the development of Kenya’s ICT sector and improve the quality of services delivered to citizens. The Connected Summit 2023 provides an important platform for this collaboration, and is a key step towards realizing Kenya’s vision of becoming a digital economy.
