"Whilst working across many different industries and types of organizations in our advisory practice, there are some questions that come up regularly. Many companies are looking for ways to become more 'data driven', and by this they mean that they want good data to shape their decisions and their processes so they can provide more effective and profitable services to their customers.
As organizations battled to navigate the headwinds caused by the pandemic, there was an increased focus on business resiliency. This is the ability of an organization to rapidly respond to business disruptions and restore business operations in a timely fashion. However, this alone is not sufficient - organizations need to be digitally resilient as well.
