SMART insights

SMART insights is published annually. It shines the spotlight on emerging technologies and digitalisation trends, and how they not only generate business value, but also make their mark on the arts, the economy, and the political sphere.

The ‘Successful’ section is packed with the achievements of companies that have recognised and harnessed the opportunities of digitalisation. The ‘People’ section is an inspiring and thought-provoking mix of articles on business and people management, profiles of pioneering implementers, and interviews with members of the Ergon team for a look behind the scenes. The ‘Ahead’ part of SMART insights is then dedicated to expert-written thought pieces that examine trends in digitalisation and test their real-life benefits.

And the Ahead section explores current issues such as the metaverse and self-sovereign identity.
