Fantastic overview of the research technology landscape & tons of inspiration

Provides great insight into the key drivers of the rapid change in our industry. Lots of examples, concrete ideas, food for thought & inspiration. Highly recommended for research technology providers (for understanding competitive space, target groups & inspiration) and for research agencies trying to navigate the changing CI space. And anyone passionate about innovation and/or the future of CI

Great summary

It is a great summary of tech trends and usage, with the right ammount of depth - not too superficial and not so technical - in an objective manner.

Succinct Synthesis

Really neat summary of the trends within tech and how they present themselves for the research industry. I have pages of notes and ideas that will serve me well in the future. Dead helpful stuff.

Great overview of current trends

Really useful breakdown of the trends within modern SaaS software development. Very interesting to see how the MR Tech industry is (and sometimes isn't!) getting on board with these trends.
