Digital technology is firmly established as a fixture of modern life, both in business and outside. Consequently, it’s almost impossible to significantly grow or improve a business without the effective adoption of digital technology. Digital technologies therefore present a huge opportunity to all businesses in Cumbria, regardless of their size, sector or location - the possibilities are huge.

What do we mean by digital technologies? Well, they are wide ranging and there are far too many to list here. Some of the more commonly used tools and applications that you may already be familiar with include:

  • Cloud based computing
  • Customer Relationship Management systems
  • E-commerce platforms
  • Cloud accounting software
  • Computer aided design software
  • Enterprise Resource Planning
  • Social Media and web based marketing

They also include emerging technologies which for many seem shrouded in mystique but are often much more accessible than believed. These include technologies such as the following, again is this is far from an exhaustive list:

  • Artificial intelligence and machine learning
