It appears like the year 2020 brought only one global story with it: the pandemic. But that wasn’t the only topic that grabbed people’s attention this year. This is the year in which the world saw how technology impacts our lives. Whether it was the remote working scenario, online learning classes or virtual events and conferences, technology kept everyone connected worldwide regardless of travel restrictions, social distancing and the lock-down.
Despite the challenges, some significant and far-reaching reforms have taken place in 2020. As the clock was ticking down this year, every industry and sector was upending digitally. Where 2020 slowed down many businesses, ‘digital transformation’ was accelerating at a breakneck pace.
