The convergence to the cloud, the expectations of a faster digitalization of companies’ businesses and the growing challenges of cybersecurity and privacy, both for companies and for citizens, are making technology more complex and integrated.
The moment of the pandemic showed that technological innovation already existed to transform business, making it clear that technology companies need to reorganize their business, creating synergies and a holistic innovation roadmap (applications + infrastructure), being very clear that the purpose of technology and innovation is to serve the business of companies, their customers and users of public administration services.
This moment to be seen as an opportunity to continue and accelerate an implementation of innovation and technology. It is essential that we continue to evolve and reinvent ourselves. Evolve to be a catalyst for the evolution of our customers, creating technological solutions of excellence for organizations that lead the digital future. Companies more than ever need competent technological partners in application development and new generation infrastructures, aligning technology and business, which guarantee their competitiveness and an excellent service to citizens by public administration entities.
Serving organizations that understand the value that technology can offer to their strategic plans and that, through it, lead an increasingly digital future, regardless of the sector of activity, or management control (private or public), should be the our daily lives, the daily life of the Technological. This is the stage when we must make the technological capabilities even more visible to the market to leverage the digital transformation of large organizations. Together, in partnership and in co-creation, for a technological future capable of serving each sector, we (we “Technologists”) must be able to transmit our strong commitment as hubs of competences and experience with a strong growth ambition, able to attract talent in areas of great innovation and transform that talent into value for the entire market (companies and their customers). Small businesses that did not have a website created it. Bookstores that did not have e-commerce developed it. Restaurants that did not have a take-away business model implemented it. Everything to respond to this new phase that has already become the famous “new normal”. I believe that the usual “normal” will not return. We cannot believe that the return to our lives is in complete safety. Just as influenza outbreaks occur annually and other infectious diseases continue to infect people, so Covid-19 will remain, until science solves the challenge of creating a vaccine. But this is not a pessimistic view, but a confident view that we will be able to overcome all difficulties with the resilience characteristic of human nature.
If it seems natural that large public and private organizations are the best conditions to win in these times of accelerated digitalization (because they have the human and financial capital to invest more), it is also true that smaller organizations are usually more agile, open to new ideas and prone to change. Certainly, some of these entities will know how to transform current adversities into high-growth economic models, and the Recovery and Resilience Plan can be used as a lever to bring about this transformation.
Milton Friedman left us with the idea that only a crisis – real or perceived – is capable of producing real changes, by creating the sense of urgency necessary for change. When this crisis happens, the actions taken depend on the ideas that circulate, on what we believe to be the solutions. That is why I believe that it is up to us to develop alternatives to existing solutions, to keep them alive and available until the impossible of the past becomes the inevitable of the present and a new (and we wish, a better) normal future is built.
