Digitalisation: new service line opportunities

Increased use of cloud-based digital solutions is proving hugely beneficial to firms in running their own businesses as well as their client’s.

In its latest IT spending forecast released in early April 2021, Gartner said that global information technology spending will grow 8.4% to $4.1 trillion in 2021, driven in part by enterprises accelerating their digital transformation plans.

We talk to firms that have advanced down the digitisation path to find out how their businesses have changed and what they have gained.
