Building on the global changes of 2016?
9 January 2017, by Jane Haysome
2016 is being commonly touted as the “worst year ever“, with people referencing the high number of artist deaths and the close political results of Brexit and the US election between increasingly polarised sides. Not everyone shares this view of course, and it has prompted some retaliatory positive news pieces you can read one here .
Whichever side of the political divide you are on, decisions taken in 2016 look to set us up for big changes in 2017 and beyond. Sorting out the finer details of Brexit, let alone assessing the impact, will be years in the making.
The pace of change has been accelerating over the recent decades, with new business and technologies coming and going at an incredible pace. Over the last few months alone, Vine is out, Snapspecs are in and Pokemon Go proved to be an instant hit across the globe.
Change means the end of certain things that we love and it means opportunity. Opportunity in your market, opportunity in training and leveraging your employees and opportunity in connecting with your clients. Technology is the foundation of all of this change. In 2016, we helped the BBC to bring coverage of Glastonbury and other events to the public as an interactive experience, we helped David Lloyd Leisure to win an award for their new mobile booking application and we started working with a leading bank to help them transform how they develop technology.

An increase in change means an increase in the ways that we can help people to innovate and drive their businesses in 2017. And beyond.
