Time and again, change really does seem to be the only constant. Global population is growing, technology is becoming increasingly sophisticated and mobile and advanced technologies are being deployed to help the world’s infrastructure keep pace.

The push toward e-mobility – from vehicles to air transport – is also contributing and convergence is influencing the structure of our world. When paired with the notion that connected devices now outnumber people and we are producing record amounts of data, continued change is both inevitable and necessary.
