Six years ago, I was a senior member of the KPMG-McKinsey team that wrote the original NBN Implementation Study. Cloud was mentioned only three times. Big data, IOT, blockchain and the sharing economy not at all. I’ve recently revisited our 500+ page opus and reflected on how the world has changed since and what that indicates about the next 6 years’ ahead. I was always convinced of the need for a top quality NBN. Now, my recent reflection has given me even more compelling certainty, based on tangible examples, of why that’s the case more than ever. My friend Andrew Birmingham at Which-50.com has just published my article.
