ICT Investment Trends in the UK: Data protection and recovery form the core of enterprises’ IT investment strategies

Summary

Furthermore, ever since the EU referendum vote, a number of the world’s leading technology companies such as Google, Facebook, Apple and Snap are demonstrating their long term commitment to invest in London by opening new offices, thereby indicating a brighter outlook for trade and ICT investments in the coming months.
