Meet the City of Impact!

Cisco Connect South Africa 2017 is all about emulating real things, real people and real technology all connected securely.

There truly has never been a better time to be in ICT. Absolutely no organization can function without technology in this day and age. No business strategy can call itself complete without technology being at its core.

Cisco Connect South Africa 2017 will showcase how connected cities integrate technology to manage their assets, services, and costs. Those cities that are ahead of the curve realize the importance of using technology to better manage the distribution of essential services for citizens, to reduce costs, and to innovate on socio-economic priorities such as health, education and employment to name a few.

We are extremely excited to have the support of our trusted sponsors, partners and customers who are at the core of our business strategy. When it comes to optimizing every aspect of network for business success, together with Cisco our partners offer the best value-based solutions because we are trusted technology advisors.

Go ahead, allow your organization to catapult through digital disruption! There truly has never been a better time than now.

See you on the 5th – 7th of March 2017.
