Ahead of this year’s Connected Summit, the organising committee is now requesting the public to come forward and give feedback on the various themes already suggested and further propose areas of interest that may improve and enhance the agenda and event program.
The three suggested themes are Citizen data; ICT as an economic enabler and Use of IT for economic development and the Summit’s organisers are now requesting the public to propose areas of interest that may improve and enhance the agenda.
The feedback is to be submitted online via the Connected Summit website.
The Connected Summit, first held in 2009, aims at establishing a platform for collaboration, capacity building and knowledge sharing between government and the ICT sector with a view of linking and hastening implementation of government IT projects to world-class standards.
The event brings together decision-makers from government and ICT industry players to deliberate on various industry issues and concerns. Since its inception as Connected Kenya, the event has enabled its participants to develop unique insights that allow them to successfully respond and design their engagement in Kenya’s vibrant ICT sector.
Projects such as Kenya Open Data Initiative, Huduma citizen’s portal and the development of a national Information Security Policy were informed or refined from discussions and panels held at previous Connected Summit sessions.
This year’s Summit will be held in mid April.
