Digital Identity & Authentication for Africa – White Paper
Digital Identity & Authentication for Africa - Africa's biggest opportunity and how mobile can unlock it
Africa is on the verge of a huge opportunity. This continent of 1.2 billion people is hungry for services such as banking, insurance, health and e-commerce – many of which would have been previously inaccessible to large portions of the population before the advent of the mobile phone. The introduction of ubiquitous mobile technology has led a transformation of economies across the continent and the potential for mobile is set to be even more disruptive as technologies and use cases advance.
In this paper, we will look more closely at the African digital ecosystem, and explore how mobile can help government and enterprise, while opening up a commercial opportunity for IT providers and mobile operators.
