Businesses worldwide are ramping up their digital capabilities not just to survive, but also to thrive. Companies are specifically scaling their technology investments in customer service, process automation, and supply chain as part of their digital transformation roadmaps. With increased focus on achieving "net-zero" emissions, businesses are investing in software enabled solutions to reduce their carbon footprint.
