Help for business owners in Wales

Do you run a small business in Wales? Would you like to know how your digital maturity compares to others in Wales? Complete the survey and receive your free digital maturity score. 

Wales, like most other nations, is undergoing a period of rapid digital transformation, with broadband-enabled digital technologies such as cloud computing, video conferencing, and social media playing a central role across business and society.

Evidence from our previous Digital Maturity Survey (2018) shows businesses achieving significant benefits from the adoption of such technologies, with 52% of Welsh SMEs reporting increased profits from the use of superfast broadband. 

At Cardiff Business School recognises the importance of research in helping to understand how businesses in Wales are responding to the opportunities provided by superfast broadband. To this end they will be launching the latest annual Digital Maturity Survey on September 9th. The survey provides the primary source of data on Welsh businesses and their Digital Maturity – reflecting their IT skills and use of digital technologies. 

All businesses taking part in the 2019 survey will be eligible to receive a copy of their free Digital Maturity Score (this will be sent to all participants in early 2020), showing how they compare to others in Wales. By taking part, businesses will be able to support this important research, inform the work of Welsh Government in relation to superfast broadband, and contribute towards the development of Wales as a digital nation.
