Taking a step back and reviewing the changes that are underpinning digital: the generation, collection, and storage of data have never been so cheap, and this is happening just as number crunching power is reaching unprecedented heights at lower costs. Simultaneously, the digital mind-set of society is ever expanding, spurring a willingness to engage with digital technology on a constant basis as well as much higher expectations for the quality of user interfaces and level of service.
