The Data Opportunity

Data | Digital Evolution | Technology

The debate about 5G is now mainstream and we’ve referred to it a number of times in this blog feed, and although the discussion often focuses on the technology, the associated issue of importance is data, and how we’ll use it to transform our world. Self-driving cars, for example, are regularly referred to when illustrating […]

Business Management | Cloud | IT Industry | IT Infrastructure

It’s said that business is all about making decisions before someone else makes them for you.
