This week’s African Tech Roundup is dedicated to sharing insights taken from the recent Internet of Things World Forum hosted in London. The Global IT and networking giant, Cisco, convened the invite-only gathering to facilitate dialogue among key stakeholders and innovators in business, government, and academia, and to “bring industry leaders together to collaborate, network, partner, and solve the challenges facing IoT”.

To ascertain how the trend towards IoT adoption is likely to impact African enterprises and citizens alike, we caught up with Dimension Data’s Global Director for the Internet of Things, Anton Jooste; David Meads, who heads up Cisco’s Africa business; Prathap Dendi, who is the general manager for emerging technologies at the application performance management; IT operations analytics start-up, AppDynamics; and Alan Griffiths of Cambashi, an analyst specialising in industrial IoT, cloud computing, and their effects on the technical software applications market.

Out of the remaining three, I recall handing one down to a younger sibling and disposing another in a waste bag during spring cleaning. I haven’t given much thought to where my current phone will end up when it no longer serves its purpose. Until now.
