Speaking on behalf of Vodacom, Guy Clarke, MD for Vodacom Business Africa Group said: “To maintain a competitive advantage and remain relevant to customer’s fast changing needs, organizations are digitally transforming their DNA’s across all customer touch points. Therefore, having a network that is not only extensive but also flexible and scalable to changing demands, has become an imperative CTO’s consider when choosing how best to connect their geographically dispersed operations in Africa.
This is the peace-of-mind CTO’s have enjoyed over the years when utilising Vodacom’s extensive network, knowing they will be able to further leverage their global capabilities in these 47 African markets, to get closer to their local customers while focusing on their core business value propositions. Coupled with this expansion, our ongoing Software-Defined network transformation programme re-enforces our resolve to be a strategic enabler at the heart of our customer’s digital transformations,” concluded Guy.
