The Technology space in Africa is developing rapidly as governments and businesses on the continent are deploying technology to transform and become more efficient. New and emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), Software Engineering, Robotics, Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), Metaverse among others are becoming common. Technology has become an effective tool enabling how individuals and businesses interact. It has also helped governments engage their citizens and influencers such as celebrities connect with their community, fans and followers. However, the continent is yet to realize the full potential and benefits of these emerging technologies due to skills gaps, technology infrastructural gaps, cultural barriers, regulation red tapes in some countries just to name a few.

One major area identified to help bridge the gap is building the capacity of ICT professionals across the African continent through a platform that will help with knowledge sharing, skills development, partnership and investment by technology organizations. 

Technology Information Confederation Africa (TICONA) Is A Continental Nonprofit Organization Which Aims At Adding Value To African ICT Professional Associations Across The Continent Through Five Major Initiatives: Research And Development On ICT Needs On The African Continent, Publications Of ICT Related Activities In Various Countries For Knowledge Sharing Of Best Practices, Education To Build Capacity Of ICT Professionals In Various Countries Through Professional Qualifications, Networking Events Such As Annual Conferences That Brings Together ICT Professionals From Different African Countries To Share Knowledge And Business Contacts, Finally, Revenue Mobilization For Capacity Building Of Professionals In Various Countries.

In summary, the objective of TICONA is to add value to its members by helping them to develop standards for African ICT Professionals and make ICT a career worthy of choice to propel socio-economic development of the continent. TICONA is poised to connect with all active ICT Professional Associations in all countries on the African continent to build a vibrant confederation that will ensure standardization of professional qualifications, research, publications, events and regulation reforms. In addition, TICONA aims at supporting countries without ICT Professionals Association to setup and mobilize professionals within those countries.
