What are some of the new trends in tech?
I think everything around immersive technologies and the Metaverse is especially exciting. There are many business opportunities for big and small companies to define the future of communications.
How can smaller companies get a foothold in the tech industry?
Startups need to be agile and fast to adapt to changes in the market and to jump into opportunities that might arise. This is something big tech companies cannot do so easily.
What are some of the biggest concerns facing the tech community today?
I guess that from the user perspective, privacy and data protection. From the employee perspective, the uncertainty of the post-pandemic world, working from home or even working at all!
What key messaging do you want the DTS community to hear?
About the new opportunities a new computing platform is bringing to us, and how Irish startups are positioning themselves to get a competitive advantage.
