Cloud platforms are becoming the trigger for business model innovation. They are being seen as a democratising force, liberating opportunities and offering a strong base for organisations to fast-track their digital transformation journeys, without the need for costly upfront investments.

In this issue, IKE CEO Professor Sa’ad Sam Medhat explores how the rise of the ‘everything as a service’ model is leveraging the power of the cloud for business innovation.

Also in this issue:

  • We speak to companies that have weathered the Covid-19 storm by turning disruption into an opportunity for business transformation.
  • We find out how architects are responding to emerging needs for post-pandemic workspaces with new office designs.
