As economies become more globalized, businesses must use every advantage available to them. Technology is a key advantage, enabling faster communication, increased production capacities and wider commercial reach. But while technology is synonymous with innovation, it also brings change. Competition is fierce and businesses must constantly adapt to stay ahead of the curve.
