Why digital oversight is so critical


When digital transformation projects are well underway, significant risks remain
In a competitive business environment, companies are under increasing pressure to cut costs and improve efficiency. Over the last few years, this has resulted in a digital transformation drive with firms embracing technologies such as cloud, internet of things and artificial intelligence (AI).
