If you’re reading this, you’ve probably already had first-hand experience in how the COVID-19 pandemic has turbo-charged existing trends in technology and digital transformation.
That could be something as simple as the Zoom meeting you just finished from your kitchen, your business reinvesting in digital offerings, or even how entire industries are discovering a renewed commitment to digitising processes.

Firstly, it’s clear that almost everyone in the country has undergone a crash course in the importance of data and the all-too-real impacts of data-informed decisions. We’re all closely watching health, economic, and market data and understand better than ever the importance of its use.
