NComputing Sponsors eLearning Africa 2014 to Showcase African Success in Educational ICT

Updates on how African educators are accelerating e-learning in schools, colleges and universities with cutting edge, affordable and simple to manage client virtualisation solutions

London, UK - May 19, 2014 - NComputing, a leader in client virtualisation solutions, today announced its participation in the 9th international conference on ICT in education and training eLearning Africa held in Kampala, Uganda. NComputing is a gold sponsor of the event and will be showcasing how its latest technology is helping even more African schools, colleges and universities widen access to elearning and improve the quality of education and training.

Jochen Polster, VP EMEA at NComputing, will be speaking at the conference's plenary session on Thursday, 29th May, and will explore how client virtualization solutions are an engine for education and development in Africa. He will be speaking alongside the Honourable William Nyombi Thembo, the Minister for State for Information and Communications Technology, Uganda.

NComputing has worked with African educators and governments for many years. Among its African customers are Nkumba University in Uganda, Kenya's Institute of Advanced Technology, South Africa's Western Cape Education Department and the Ministry of Education in Ghana.

At eLearning Africa, NComputing will explore how a wide variety of African education institutions are using its vSpace desktop and application virtualization platform and thin client devices to transform how teachers and students use computers. Among the latest implementations discussed at the event will be: Ekurhuleni East College, South Africa; Transoranje School for the Deaf, South Africa; Bonnington Community Secondary School, Botswana, and the University of Botswana.

One of the key factors for the faster adoption of NComputing's technology in the region is the simplicity and affordability of its thin client devices and its vSpace platform. While enabling full access to the latest elearning software and resources, NComputing solutions are perfectly suited to the unique requirements of African education. They offer greater robustness and reliability, lower power consumption and the ability to centralise school IT with no need for expensive technical support in classrooms.

eLearning Africa is the largest conference for elearning and ICT supported education and training professionals in the region. The event gathers training practitioners, education experts, vendors and researchers from more than 65 countries, including senior Government officials, policy decision makers and business representatives.

In addition to speaking and sponsoring the event, NComputing will be demonstrating how its thin clients and vSpace desktop and application virtualization platform are ideally suited to enabling innovative elearning in the exhibition area.

At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throug...
Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...

However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...
Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.
