  6. 6. Looking to the future We are living through some of the biggest changes the world has ever seen. The digital revolution is transforming the way we interact – how we live, work and play. At the same time, growing awareness of the sustainability challenges facing businesses are forcing us to join this revolution or face being left behind. Information and communication technology (ICT) facilitates sustainable development. If we develop and apply ICT badly, the business will suffer. We would be unable to provide our current and potential customers with new and emerging ways of doing business and fall behind our competitors. If we apply ICT well, the rewards could be enormous. Customer awareness of Hughes Insurance and ease of access to the fruits of our business would increase exponentially. The sustainability challenges facing an ICT Department are complex, just as in other departments. This should not, however, prevent such a department from dealing with the issues and so being key to the business reaping maximum benefit. Sustainability leadership is necessary if the benefits are to be real and realised. Presented by: David Holbrook 6
