About Cisco Connect

Africa, the time is now!

It is with great pleasure and excitement we welcome you all to Cisco Connect 2019. For the first time we are extending the event to cover Sub-Saharan Africa.

Cisco Connect Sub-Saharan Africa 2019 is the flagship event for IT professionals on the continent, offering delegates insights into cutting edge innovations, access to our leadership and the latest IT industry trends.

At Cisco, we stand ready to chart a new course together, to harness the chaos and wonder of the world’s ever-expanding amounts of data and intelligence, to drive growth, to serve customers, to create communities, and to ultimately change the world for the better.

With the emergence of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things and vast amounts of data, we have reached an inflection point that breaks the old paradigm of networks as technology underpinnings and requires us to look again.

An inflection point where connection is our universal currency. Not just connections between people, places and things — connected everything.

We are excited to have the support of our trusted sponsors, partners and customers who are at the core of our business strategy. When it comes to optimizing every aspect of the network for business success, Cisco together with our partners offers the best value-based solutions because we are trusted technology advisors.

Our network is our life’s work. With the immense capabilities of our intent-based networking, we have only just scratched the surface of what’s possible. With all of these considerations and the right partner at your side, the real question becomes, “what’s your next act?”

We look forward to exploring these opportunities at Cisco Connect.

See you on 19 - 21 May 2019
