Last month we tuned into the annual Microsoft Inspire event to find out what’s instore in the world of tech transformation. As always Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft’s keynote was immense! He spoke about the huge impact of the pandemic on technology. In Satya’s words “every company will need to be a technology company”. In this era of change, tech is key to remaining resilient and to maintaining growth. This article shares an insight into the future of tech.

COVID-19 – a catalyst for change

The pandemic has proven to be one of the most challenging periods in history. At the same time, it’s marked an era of epic change. Digital technology has and will continue to be crucial to resilience and transformation as a society and in business.

The growing power of data

Last year saw businesses trust in technology grow to connect with customers, to dig deep into sales data, predict trends – the list goes on. The power of data is growing at a colossal rate.
