The UK economy is going through a phase of unprecedented disruption and transformation. Not only are businesses facing a great deal of uncertainty due to challenges such as Brexit, but technological advances and changes in working culture are changing the shape of British businesses for the foreseeable future.
Industry 4.0 may seem like just another corporate buzzword, but the growing role of technologies such as IoT, AI, machine learning and blockchain cannot be ignored.
