The gaming industry continues to grow rapidly, and it is projected to grow another 30%
in the next three years1
. Online gaming is driving this growth as the industry is making a
seismic shift from disk to digital. This shift comes with an abundance of opportunities and
challenges, as digital gaming makes it easier than ever to get games into the hands of more
players, in more places, in less time.
TechValidate Research surveyed 131 Akamai Technologies, Inc. customer accounts to find out more about how gaming
companies are innovating the marketplace and the challenges they need to overcome in order to do so. The results show
the importance of web security, that acquiring and retaining new users is the biggest business challenge companies are
facing, and that mobile is taking over as the most popular gaming platform.

For years, “tax-free online shopping” has brought customers to the web in droves, all while raising the ire of brick-and-mortar retailers claiming an unfair price advantage to sellers offering prices free of sales tax. At the center of these debates lies the small to medium business, attempting to navigate changing sales tax requirements, and facing increased scrutiny under these new rules.
Sales tax compliance is becoming a sticky wicket, as state and local governments revise tax laws to increase revenue, and Congress considers granting states the authority to make remote sellers charge sales tax.
This Definitive Guide lays out sales and use tax basics as well as commonly misunderstood elements of sales tax compliance, to provide you a one-stop reference for all things sales and use tax related. The last two sections include a state-by-state summary of sales tax rules and regulations, and a glossary of terms.

If there’s one thing that stands out about central government, it’s the appetite for digital transformation. Whether delivering new customer-facing websites to drive better engagement with services or establishing a centre of excellence to accelerate the take-up of robotic process automation (RPA), UK government is embracing opportunities to modernise with new technologies.
But despite the great strides made in the last few years, the UK is slipping backwards in E-Government development terms – down from #1 in 2016 to #4 in 2018, according to the UN E-Government Survey 2018. Some argue this is due to the government having tackled the more straightforward digitisation opportunities and because it is now facing the bigger, more complex systems that need modernising. Our research shows that there are also wider challenges, including uncertainty around the impact of Brexit, budgetary pressures and emerging technologies, coming into play.
So what needs to happen to overcome our challenges
