Key Themes

Technology is at the heart of the shift in ways of working since the pandemic began and continues to drive the agenda for many leaders looking beyond COVID-19. The pandemic has accelerated many companies’ technology transformation efforts (cloud, end-user, collaboration tools) as well as a cultural change to adopt agile methodologies for business and IT.
