What impact will Brexit have on UK businesses?

On 23rd June 2016, 51.9% of the British population voted to leave the European Union (EU). Since then, the UK government has been negotiating with the EU to reach a deal on the future of the relationship. The UK was supposed to leave the EU on 29th March 2019. Yet, a deal has not been made betweeen the UK and EU. Therefore, the EU has extended Brexit until 31st October 2019. This means that between now and then, the UK must reach a deal otherwise it will leave the EU without a deal. Given the uncertainty surrounding Brexit and climate of immense change, businesses have the opportunity to innovate and break into new markets.

The Digital Transformation of the Public Sector

With the government’s Cloud First strategy, public sector organisations are transitioning into a new digital era. This introduces a range of fresh challenges and rewards to reap across the sector. According to global IT services provider Fujutsu, 67% of UK citizens desire faster and simpler services, driving them to use the digital option when it is available. The digital transformation of the UK’s public sector is inspiring the increased adoption of digital strategies to improve and support collaboration between citizens and various arms of the public sector.  Taking steps towards greater efficiency is crucial to meeting the growing expectations of a community that is becoming accustomed to the availability of digital services.
