blog-header-the-true-meaning-of-digital-transformation

After several years of serious global upheaval, it is clear that resilience, agility, and the ability to adapt to the unexpected are critical priorities for all organisations – regardless of size or sector. However, this accelerated pace of change has, in many cases, revealed the limitations of existing IT services.

Adversity into opportunity: transforming the legal sector’s view of IT

legal-blog-apr20 Adversity into opportunity: transforming the legal sector’s view of IT
It's impossible to overstate the impact COVID-19 has had on businesses throughout the UK, forcing organisations to rethink their approaches to work, and – in many cases – redesign their infrastructures to accommodate the Government's new requirements for remote working.
