This issue of the magazine is published as the world comes to terms with a global pandemic that is forcing everybody to reimagine how they go about their daily business and find new ways to communicate while adhering to governmental measures designed to slow the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
Our public sector feature explores how government agencies are adopting the latest Microsoft technologies to drive greater efficiency and improve the overall delivery of services. It’s a timely reminder that the work being done to connect public sector workforces with citizens can have a deeply significant impact upon the ways in which our lives are organised.

Continuing with the theme of AI, in our financial services feature we look at the perennial issue of maintaining secure trading environments across all aspect of the industry. We hear from BIAN’s Hans Tesselaar about the need for strict regulation that can counter the ever-present threat of money laundering, while Microsoft partners BioCatch, Finastra and NetGuardians tell us more about the work that they are doing to help fight fraud.
