At the Africa Tech Alliance Forum, Dr. Aminu Maida, Executive Vice Chairman/CEO of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), emphasized the critical role of Technology-as-a-Service (TaaS) and infrastructure deployment for propelling technological advancement.

The focus of his message was the significance of TaaS as a beacon of innovation, providing businesses with adaptable tools in an ever-evolving environment.

He urged service providers to integrate TaaS, emphasizing its democratizing impact on access to cutting-edge solutions for businesses of varying sizes.

Infrastructure Deployment: The Backbone of TaaS

Highlighting the NCC’s strategic objectives, Maida announced plans to elevate Nigeria’s broadband penetration to 70% by the close of 2023. This involves laying an extensive 95,000 kilometers of fiber optic cables and ensuring coverage for at least 80% of the nation’s population by 2027.

Maida underscored the role of infrastructure deployment in driving TaaS, enabling businesses to access advanced technology without enduring long-term commitments or hefty investments.

He stated, “Through infrastructure deployment within the TaaS framework, there is a paradigm shift where the burden of infrastructure ownership is alleviated, and the focus is shifted to accessibility, scalability, and service-oriented solutions.

Shifting Paradigms in Technology Deployment

The NCC Chief delved into the essence of TaaS, noting its impact on how businesses consume technology. He emphasized the shift from traditional complexities of infrastructure ownership to a model that prioritizes accessibility, scalability, and service-oriented solutions.

It enables on-demand access to a vast array of technological resources and services, providing the flexibility to scale resources according to immediate needs, without the constraints of traditional ownership models,” Maida stressed.

Financial Benefits and Unparalleled Agility

Maida further outlined the practical benefits of this innovative approach. Notably, the conversion of capital expenditures into operational costs allows businesses to redirect resources toward innovation and growth rather than fixed infrastructure expenses.

He also highlighted the unparalleled agility offered by TaaS, enabling organizations to respond promptly to market demands.

Ultimately, Dr. Aminu Maida’s call for the integration of TaaS and infrastructure deployment signals a shift in technology consumption, unlocking its potential while easing the burdens of infrastructure maintenance.
