Commenting on the event, DIGIT Founder Ray Bugg said: “The coronavirus pandemic has forced businesses to adjust to a new set of pressures, changing expectations, and new ways of working. Technology has been the lifeline that has allowed organisations to continue to operate, adapt and weather this disruption.”

“This year’s summit will consider the role of technology leaders in this testing business environment, and discuss how we can help support our teams and ensure our organisations continue to innovate and improve.”
