He is a man with a mission: Tarkan Maner, President and CEO of Wyse Technology, the global provider of cloud client computing hardware, software and solutions. It is his true conviction that cloud client solutions democratise technology. Unlike ‘fat’ PCs which are expensive and require a lot of maintenance, Wyse’s thin, zero or cloud devices do not store data – all files and applications reside in a single data centre. This reduces energy consumption, maintenance and, above all, cost. In this interview with eLearning Africa editor Andrea Marshall, Tarkan Maner explains how cloud client solutions can support educational institutions in Africa.
