Technology adoption: beyond the Covid hype

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted everything from consumer behaviour to supply chains, and the economic fallout is causing further changes. The one thing that we hear about constantly is how technology and digital transformation has been speeded up as a result.

Michael Avery hosted Samir Sharma, founder & CEO, Datazuum, a London-based data management consultancy specialising in data strategy and analytics. Sharma hosts “The Data Strategy Show” podcast, & Paul Morley, Executive - Group Data Services, Nedbank, to try and pierce the hype and distinguish real change and real value from the breathless marketing spin surrounding cloud, data and digital transformation strategies.
