Technology changes fast, but the tech industry changes faster.
In a landscape moving at this speed, it can be difficult to keep up with your customers. That’s why we’ve created this quarterly report: to provide an insight into the thoughts and feelings of today’s technology decision-makers.
This quarter, we’re reflecting on responsibility. In 2016, the tech industry came under scrutiny for its role in the Brexit referendum and the election of Donald Trump.
From this moment on, tech’s governance and its impact on wider society – from job destruction, to corporate taxation, to working practices – have been in the spotlight like never before. Now, the idea of responsibility is an integral part of the tech narrative.
