African companies are answering the irresistible call of the cloud. From the ability to scale operations, boost innovation and bolster business continuity in the face of inadequate power infrastructure, migrating to the cloud has become a central component of Africa’s digital transformation.
The African cloud is now a compelling multi-billion-dollar commercial opportunity, growing at a 25%-30% rate annually. It is also a dynamic and highly complex marketplace, where hyperscalers compete and partner with a broad range of telcos, data center providers and cloud specialists.
This analysis is about the near-term economic, commercial and investor upside presented by the rapid adoption of cloud services. It is the outcome of 12 months of extensive research and data analysis, dozens of interviews and conversations with enterprises and service providers and four separate enterprise cloud adoption surveys.
