It’s easy to get weighed down after the challenges of the last 18 months which have affected businesses large and small but, thankfully, the economic recovery is gathering speed and the opportunities for business are increasing.
Northern Ireland’s business environment is resilient, ambitious and vibrant. It’s one of the most digitally connected and engaged locations in the world after years of forward-thinking investment in superfast broadband, wireless infrastructure, cutting-edge technology and data science.
It gets better. Last year, Belfast was among only three UK cities to be chosen by the World Economic Forum as a ‘global smart city’ in its alliance of 22 countries to help realise its full digital potential.
This is why Northern Ireland is gaining a reputation globally as a place to do business.
So what does all this mean for local businesses?
Firstly, we can gain comfort that investment pledged many years ago has and is delivering the digital frameworks we need right now to run our businesses more productively, connect with colleagues and clients more easily from anywhere – and save money in the process.
Better access to superfast broadband and more reliable 4G and 5G mobile networks will help the economy to create jobs and support innovation and growth, and it opens up a plethora of new and exciting options for businesses who have not yet fully embraced the digital journey – online file sharing, access to the ‘Cloud’, data storage and backup, video conferencing and much, much more.
So whether you are an established enterprise, or a start-up, the way you do business has changed – from remote working, customers increasing use of digital channels to taking advantage our place in the global economy.
With the big tools in place – access to superfast broadband and high-speed mobile networks – local businesses now have an unrivalled opportunity to make sure they have the best digital kit to keep them on the road to recovery and further growth.
