Rachel Bell commented in IT Pro on the implications of the proposed EU’s Digital Markets Act
Rachel said that the: "improved access, choice, and information coming out of the DMA is unparalleled for businesses and consumers alike. Smaller tech companies will benefit from user-choice over preloaded apps and the ability to opt for alternative services to interact with their contacts. For consumers, the increased access and choice will also deliver more transparency around the privacy practices of Big Tech."
She added that: "The DMA is a clear break away from the “closed model” status quo favoured by Big Tech, representing the biggest overhaul of the laws governing tech companies in over two decades. The measures are set to pave the way for a more equitable and transparent industry, ushering in a new era for small businesses, innovators and disruptors."
