IT Pro 20/20: Inside Japan's war over digital transformation

Welcome to issue 32 of IT Pro 20/20, distilling the most important themes of the previous month into a simple, easy-to-read package.

At a time of shrinking budgets and growing uncertainty, getting IT investment right has never been more critical. Understanding what technology is likely to improve your business, and what passing fads may just make things more complicated, is a considerable challenge for IT decision makers, even in the best of economic climates.

Issue 32 is all about understanding the potential of emerging technologies, and identifying the problems that can arise when businesses choose to embrace flashy terminology at the expense of simplification.
