Funke Opeke, CEO of MainOne, has asked Nigerian businesses to embrace disruptive technology to weather the nation’s economic downturn.

The MainOne CEO said this in Lagos when the tech company, for the first time in Nigeria, showcased Microsoft HoloLens, the world’s first self-contained holographic computer running Windows 10 at MainOne’s Nerds Unite 2017 event.

Opeke also said the current recession in Nigeria was a motivator for the event theme for the 2017 edition, “Disruptive Technology: Achieve More with Less.” She said that the annual Nerds Unite conference is a commitment of MainOne and its partners to sharing knowledge and ideas aimed at transforming the businesses of its customers.

The economic downturn has left businesses with no alternative than to adopt and leverage disruptive technology to drive efficiency, save costs and deliver economic value, Opeke said, underscoring the need to align business needs with technology, the need to be agile and the importance of security.
