How to Accelerate Africa’s Digital Transformation in the Public Sector


Digital technologies are bringing transformative change to society.

By 2025, SAP predicts that many public sector organizations will take advantage of new technologies and breakthrough innovations to become more proactive, automated, foresighted, data-driven, and citizen-focused.

The pressure is on for governments to become more responsive and provide more effective services by implementing data-driven strategies to improve efficiencies and reduce wasteful expenditure, particularly as the world recovers from COVID-19 disruption.

Join SAP, Leadership Magazine, and expert speakers as they identify how ICT in governance may be constructed to facilitate greater accountability, transparency, and the reduction of wasteful expenditure through better financial, public information management, procurement, and administrative systems. The conversation will also address the challenges and barriers that citizens and government encounter on the process of effective and efficient service delivery.

Event Moderator: Dr Onkgopotse JJ Tabane, Editor: Leadership Magazine

Expert Panel:

  1. Ayanda Dlodlo, Minister, Public Service and Administration
  2. Sunil Geness, Director Global Government Affairs & CSR, Global Sustainability Lead: Africa, SAP Africa

Across the continent, African cities are constantly looking for new ways to improve service delivery and enhance living and working ecosystems for citizens. It’s no surprise that many consider digital technology to be the ideal methodology to help deliver new public services, address existing problems, and reshape citizen engagement. Digital technology holds the key to the successful transformation of cities. It can accelerate and enable economic prosperity and commerce, improve safety and security, and make a real impact on the quality of life for citizens.
