"A common mistake people make when trying to design something foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools."
- Douglas Adams, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy -

Due to popular demand, Future Enterprise Systems Africa is moving to Johannesburg this October. Join us at the Focus Rooms in Sunninghill for Africa’s premiere enterprise architecture and innovation conference.

Future Enterprise Systems Africa (FESA) is a discussion platform dedicated to supporting the relationships of CIOs, Enterprise Architects and innovation leaders with the rest of the business. Technology is providing the backbone for transformation, the foundation of which is backed by innovative tech and meticulously thought-out strategies.

Born out of the DigiCon Africa and Chief Digital Officer Africa series of events, FESA puts technology front and centre of the digitally transformed business, considering the practicalities of the future of work beyond the pragmatism of cultural change.

While our core delegates are busy designing, implementing and consolidating their future IT strategies, the convergent nature of enterprise architecture cannot be overlooked. Diversity is key to holding quality discussions, whether they are the Head of IT for a SMME, a talented technologist in a start-up or a leader within myriad departments at an established blue-chip company, FESA provides a platform to discuss how you can best align, interpret and engineer technology and business strategies.

From choice international keynote presentations, industry-diverse panels, in-depth workshops and interactive discussion groups, delegates will be given the opportunity to share common challenges, learn about new innovative technologies, and gain a more holistic view of the role of the Enterprise Architect & Innovation teams, and their relationship to IT, and business leadership.

What Our Past Delegates Have to Say:

CAOI Networking

The content for each agenda was very apt and appropriate for the audience. Well done for a great show, the sponsors, exhibitors and attendees provide valuable insight." Pragasen PatherIT Security, Risk & Governance DirectorTiger Brands

The quality and relevance of the presentations the quality and standard of presenters. - Andrew Irumba, Group Manager: Marketing Operations, Sun International

The value of bringing together people you are directly involved in the execution of digital transformation was immense. To hear about successes and challenges, as well as insights from the experts in areas of AI for example, made for dynamic and creative thinking. However more impactful was the creation of the network within our community. - Shannon Naidoo, Chief Group Digital Innovation Officer, Wesbank

Having attended many conferences before, what stood out was the "fresh “material. Most of the presentations were very original and topical. - Renier Jansen van VuurenHead of Client Experience, Momentum Investments
