Verdict Magazine issue two has been released, offering long reads on key subjects across enterprise technology. You can read it here.

2020 hasn’t exactly got off to the most stable start. The coronavirus has spread rapidly around the world, upending businesses across the world of technology and plunging the stock markets into chaos. But while the future may seem uncertain, there is huge potential ahead.

In this issue of Verdict Magazine, we’re not avoiding the c-word, but we are looking beyond it, to the technologies, trends and companies that are changing the game both in the coming year and far beyond.

First, however, let’s talk about Mobile World Congress, which became one of the first global events to fall victim to the coronavirus. In recognition of this upheaval, we’ve put together a special report on MWC, exploring how it came to be cancelled, what would and could have happened if it had gone ahead, and whether digital conferences are the way forward in a future where pandemics are expected to become more commonplace.

Away from that, we take a look at trends that are happening regardless of the coronavirus, from the rise of blockchain to the creep of subscription models, to topics far beyond in the world of technology.
