For companies, this means a need to start thinking about how traditional operations can be transformed, and brought in line with current sustainable thinking and the expectations of customers and the market, overhauling print operations, reducing waste and making operations more sustainable.

A growing and aging population requires a range of health services, from the less critical outpatient services to essential inpatient surgeries and procedures.

The trends and challenges of the Internet of Things

The trends and challenges of the Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) may seem like just a buzzword to many, but there’s far more to this trend that businesses need to be aware of.
