Companies such as icolo and Eaton are focused on the dimensions that can enhance capacities of businesses. icolo designs, builds and operates state of the art neutral data centers to serve a broad spectrum of clients.
“We are delighted to be associated with the forthcoming East Africa CIO 100 Symposium scheduled from 8th – 10th November. Data centres are integral to successful digital transformation strategy- which is currently driven by cloud computing, big data and the Internet of Things (IoT) and Security. Companies not only want to stay ahead of competitors but also maximize their technology efficiency to ensure they are set apart from the rest. In order for this to happen companies need to have an operational digital transformation strategy that will be successful hence data centres role is key,” said Zainab Daham, Marketing Manager, icolo.io

I think that’s the recipe for Eaton’s success.”
