Executives of African companies and technology users can expect to read and be read about in the forthcoming edition of PC Tech magazine, a Uganda-based information and technology publication.
Albert Mucunguzi, the executive director, PC Tech Communication, said the magazine will unveil its inaugural international edition: the October - December Issue, in Accra, Ghana on 24 September 2010.
Released alongside East African edition
The quarterly publication will be sold alongside PC Tech's East African edition which is sold in Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania and Rwanda. PC Tech focuses on ICT news, features, reviews and how-to stories, to inform the public.
"The magazine seeks to tell the African ICT story by documenting and presenting the use of information technologies (ICTs) by private and public institutions/companies in Africa," Mucunguzi told members of Uganda's I-Network, a group of technology and ICT news followers, last week. The new edition features IT companies around the continent, including interviews with CEOs of the companies.
The publisher added that the international edition details consumer interests and perspectives on technology in the East African region, and the continent as a whole.
"Beyond technology adoption and usage, the magazine discusses how private and public businesses/institutions address contemporary business challenges and remain innovative and competitive," he explained.
Makerere University Associate Professor Idris A. Rai recently urged the magazine to come up with an ICT research bulletin through which the university will publish its technology content to be shared with the public as a way of deepening the use of ICTs in Uganda.
