Jonathan Lavender, Global Chairman of KPMG Enterprise, discusses ways the mid-market can take advantage of and actively seek out innovation, fresh from his participation in the World Economic Forum in Davos.
"Davos discusses global issues, but there was a lot of talk about connecting larger companies with smaller organisations, because a great deal of innovation occurs in the mid-market sector."
"Some mid-market companies around the world have under-invested in IT. However, it is now much more affordable so smaller organisations can keep up and become more competitive."
"Actively seek out opportunities. AI can help and I believe the new technology will assist, not replace existing work."
"In Australia, I see a vibrant eco-system, with mid-market companies displaying an open mind and investing in technology."
