How CIOs can keep ahead in 2021

Technology has taken centre stage as businesses across the world scramble to operate during a global pandemic. One year on, CIOs continue to face an unprecedented demand to evaluate and implement new technologies in high pressure working environments while meeting increasingly short deadlines.

From the rise in AI/ML models to enterprise system automation to next-generation analytics and insights, digital transformation has not yet reached its peak in 2021.
