Harvey Nash Technology Survey 2013

October 20, 2013

In our last Technology Survey, we explored the idea that ‘there’s no longer an off switch’.

For example: what time did you switch on your phone this morning and check your emails? Ten years ago, that would have been a very strange question to ask. However, the likelihood is that you didn’t turn your phone off last night and one of the first things you did this morning was check it to see what had happened while you were sleeping. 

Our report shows the wider effects of the invasive presence of technology on our economy and industry.
