Let’s talk about innovative cloud solutions that enable performance, productivity, and growth for your business.

Designed to showcase the latest cloud technologies and developer tools, the conference attracts hundreds of delegates eager to engage with experts from Microsoft and its partner organisations.

It’s an exciting time for the South African IT industry, with Microsoft’s local cloud data centres now open, and with the company’s ongoing efforts to empower tech startups and entrepreneurs.

The 4IR And Digital Transformation: BUI Is Going To GovTech2019

The future in focus at #GovTech2019

We’re exploring the challenges and opportunities of the 4th Industrial Revolution alongside SA’s ICT stakeholders and leaders.

Can you believe that GovTech is now in its 13th year? South Africa’s annual government technology conference, hosted by the State Information Technology Agency (SITA), will be held at the Durban International Convention Centre in KwaZulu-Natal from 27-30 October. We’re going to be there!

The theme for this year’s event is Digital Transformation: Gearing Towards the 4IR and Beyond – a timely topic as organisations and businesses across the country continue to embrace local cloud technology.

Communications Minister Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams says the government has already laid the foundation for a national response to the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and is committed to empowering people with the digital skills required to help drive change in the country.

“As a nation, we have lofty targets to meet in creating digital skill sets pertinent to the 4IR and the digital economy,” Ndabeni-Abrahams explains.

The GovTech conference boasts high-profile sponsors including Microsoft, Vodacom, and Huawei, and premier ICT companies and service providers will be showcasing their products in the exhibition halls while panel discussions and presentations take place in the main venue.

Make sure you stop by the BUI booth to say hello to our national sales manager, Paul Wallett. He’ll be on site to answer all your questions about digital transformation, cloud technology, and our award-winning services and solutions.

Visit the official GovTech 2019 website for more information, or to register for the event. And be sure to follow the #GovTech2019 and #GovTechZA hashtags on social media for more news and updates. We’ll see you there, soon!
