THE Government has urged the private sector to leverage on technology use to help the country generate homegrown economic solutions.
Commerce, Trade and Industry Minister Chipoka Mulenga said technology offered several options for the business community to leverage on service delivery.
“Zambia is back in the champion’s league, the league if doing business in real time and this is why technology is important so that we do not leave any of our people behind,” Mr. Mulenga said.
He said this in Lusaka on Thursday during the official launch of Infratel Zambia’s ” Cloud nine” platform, called Azure-Stack Services.
Speaking at the same occasion, Infratel Chiefs Executive Officer Evans Silavwe said the platform would enable businesses deploy services quickly to thereby meet customer expectations.
“Taking up azure stack services from Infratel enhances the organisation’s compliance to the data localisation and gives local access to critical data which is the life blood of the organisation,” Dr. Silavwe said.
He said the firm owned and operated more than 1200 communication towers, three data centres, cloud services and operated an optic fibre network which it leverage to provide telecommunications infrastructure as a service to the Government, organisation and other licensed entities.
