Tech investments are expected to increase this year as organizations realize the need for tech advancements to ensure industry relevance and are diving into emerging technologies or fast-tracking digital transformation projects. “CEOs know they must accelerate the adoption of digital business and are seeking more direct digital routes to connect with their customers,” says David Groombridge, VP Analyst, Gartner.
