Online services are of increasing commercial and social importance to our society. Behind the scenes, numerous companies are active in enabling these online services.
Data centres form the core of these online services. In spite of their importance to African economy, data centres are still underexposed in the media, government and politics.
In 2018 the Africa Data Centre Association (ADA), the Trade Association for data centres in Africa was founded to give the data centres industry proper representation in the rest of society.
