Vodacom: Technology?ll Drive Efficiency, Productivity
« on: December 12, 2017, 06:20:25 AM »
The Managing Director, Vodacom Business Nigeria, Lanre Kolade, has advised entrepreneurs in Nigeria to adopt new technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data Analytics currently disrupting the business world, to drive productivity, efficiency and remain competitive.

Kolade who spoke at the Business Day CEO Forum Nigeria 2017, an annual thought leadership initiative in collaboration with McKinsey & Co, he said: ?Technology such as IoT enables growth across business sectors. Today, many organisations are using this technology to cut costs, reduce risk, increase revenue and efficiency.?

According to him African businesses are gradually adopting IoT, with Nigeria being one of the leading markets on the continent. This adoption is driven by the increasing availability of affordable smart devices, coupled with the need for enterprises to deliver shareholder value. According to the Vodafone?s Global IoT barometer report 2017, the adoption of IoT has grown significantly from 12 per cent in 2013 to 29 per cent in 2017 and 49 per cent of these adopters use IoT in conjunction with analytics to improve business decision-making.

In Africa, disruptive technologies such as IoT holds significant potential and opportunities are found in different sectors ranging from finance, insurance to manufacturing and agriculture, including the education sector. Organisations of all sizes now use IoT to optimise processes, automate production and monitor the supply chain.

Kolade said: ?We can use technology to disrupt education, with broadband penetration, digitisation becomes possible and education contents will be more accessible to all in Nigeria.?

Vodacom is using technology to address challenges in, education, healthcare and agriculture in Africa. Vodacom recently deployed IoT solution for education and healthcare in Kaduna State using a mobile school management solution which provides real-time visibility of all administrative activities at over 4000 schools. The healthcare solution monitors stock level and distribution of essential medicines in over 250 medicine dispensary facilities in the state.
