Tech in a changing world
Emerging and enabling technologies are disrupting traditional models of service delivery. There is hardly a sector in the UK that will not be undergoing digital transformation in some shape or form and data is itself coming a building block for modern living.
Software is now largely delivered via the cloud through subscription services (SaaS) which require new models for licensing. Edge computing and distributed cloud is becoming the dominant model for delivery across industries, with the associated demand for cyber security.
Furthermore, the digital world has a tendency towards concentrating power in the hands of a relatively small number of platform and marketplace providers who deliver services (for themselves and on behalf of third parties) through B2C, B2B and B2B2C business models.
