The Nigeria Computer Society (NCS) is the largest umbrella organization of all information technology professionals, interest groups, and stakeholders in Nigeria.

On August 3-5, 2021, Oracle Academy sponsored and participated in the society’s International Annual Conference, themed ‘Innovative Systems for a Digital Economy’. The Conference was aimed at providing opportunity for governments, businesses, academia, and the technology community to consider broad social, economic, and technical trends affecting the development of the digital economy and discuss policies as a response to evolving societal demands. About 70 percent of participants, both attendees and members of NCS, came from academia.

Oracle Academy Senior Marketing Manager, EMEA, Danny Gooris (pictured) took part in the event as a speaker. In his presentation titled ‘The Making of a Digital Innovator’ he discussed the importance of digital innovation, the difference between digital innovation and digital transformation, and what digital innovation looks. He thereafter presented the Oracle Academy free program benefits and the Oracle Academy Cloud Program – an always-free cloud offering that was recently launched to the academic community.

This collaboration between the academic population of Nigeria Computer Society and Oracle Academy over the years has led to an increased promotion of computing education while providing free teaching and learning resources to educators.

Oracle Academy also provides professional development opportunities for educational faculty and helps assist policy makers and other stakeholders in the education system bridge the gap between education and technology.
