One year after the launch of the recovery plan at European level, which led to the PNRR in Italy, 01net carries out an investigation, based on a series of interviews with the main companies operating in Italy in the ICT on their strategy for digitalisation of the
We talk with them about four key themes of digital transformation: resilience, cybersecurity, cloud, environmental and social sustainability and the answers allow you to build the ICT reality participation map for the country’s growth in the digital sense.
And there is one more theme, the fifth: in a spirit of consultation, we ask that Italian entrepreneurs be given an extra idea, capable of producing immediate value in terms of efficiency and competitiveness.
For Ifs, the President Global High Potential Markets and COO Western, Southern Europe & LATAM, Zoran Radumilo, responded.
A year after the Recovery Plan, where are we with the real transformation of the country: with what solutions, skills and services do you participate in the missions of the PNRR involving digital?
IFS is a global cloud enterprise software company, a unique platform that focuses on the concept of the Moment of Service. Thanks to our unique product-based technology, Ifs Cloud, which natively integrates ERP, EAM and FSM solutions, Ifs focuses on helping customers orchestrate their own people, assets and all their assets. This represents the great opportunity that allows companies to digitally transform themselves in a simpler and faster way. Ifs Cloud enables companies to access PNRR funds much more likely to achieve future-oriented investment and increase their value faster, containing costs.
2021 was the year in which the theme of cybersecurity landed in all businesses. What concrete prospects did you give for 2022?
IFS is highly security-oriented and ensures that its customers are fully respected, including privacy rules.
The key component of digital transformation is the cloud. What are the choices that Italian companies will have to make in 2022?
First of all, the desire to innovate and quickly start digital transformation with solutions that allow Italian companies to have very reduced time to value and time to market. To achieve these goals, companies must choose the partner who can guide them in these innovative processes with a Moment of Service strategy, now central to the supply of products and services alone.
After the Cop26 it was understood that sustainability, both environmental and social, now affects not only all countries but also all companies. What is your strategy on these issues?
In Ifs we believe that investment in sustainability is an essential value from the business of the company. Sustainability is now an integral part of the IFS Cloud platform that allows our customers to constantly monitor their progress with respect to internal and external regulations of their company, and achieve their commitments and objectives on this front. Furthermore, Ifs itself supports the sector in general, to encourage greater responsibility towards our environment.
ICT idea of 2022
If you were to offer a single investment (product, solution, methodology) to an Italian company, a choice that could produce an immediate benefit in terms of efficiency and competitiveness, what would your advice be about?
Not only a product or a solution but the service is what we call the Moment of Service in Ifs. For organizations it is necessary to focus on the customer in every part of the production chain and turn problems into opportunities. Companies must understand that their suppliers must move their advice towards continuous engagement, to continuously apply innovation in the chosen solutions, but above all to go to the rhythm of the customer himself. A complete solution like Ifs Cloud inevitably reduces time to market and allows you to land on the market before and more prepared.
