Deployment of mobile services is a real success story in Africa. Cloud Computing is just starting to take off. African Cloud Computing has a big and perhaps unseen potential as it may answer to traditional technical issues (lack of storage, connectivity, infrastructure and unreliable local energy sources). However providing cloud infrastructure will not be enough. African constraints shall be taken into account in order to provide Platforms as a Service adapted to this very specific environment. The talk will introduce Emerginov, an open source PHP PaaS dedicated to co innovation in Africa, part of the OW2 community and developed by Orange Labs.  This talk is given by Morgan Richomme, Network architect for multimedia services in Orange Labs.

Twitter @ow2 @emerginovwww.ow2.org www.emerginov.ow2.org Cloud Computing in Africa ● « Many in sub-Saharan Africa have skipped directly to mobile devices. And while Africa, like other emerging markets, has been slow to embrace cloud computing, it is starting to take off here, with tech experts touting the cloud’s big and perhaps unseen potential. » ● Cloud computing may in fact prove ideal for Africa, where there is little traditional internet infrastructure, unreliable electricity grids in many areas — making on-site storage impractical — and an ongoing boom in business and development Src : Erin Conway-Smith November 7 2013, http://www.globalpost.com
