Vittorio Massone pointed out that the effects of the digital revolution have not yet had their full impact: the changes occurred so far are only the beginning, as the real transformation will take place in the next twenty years.
The digital transformation process has been so radical that daily actions such as working and buying, just to name a few, have undergone really profound changes: this is only a taste of the digital revolution, and the real transformation will have its full impact only in the next twenty years. Vittorio Massone, an expert in management and digital projects, explained that the digital revolution has already brought about a very big change within everyone’s lives. But, he pointed out, the revolution is expected to extend to those areas other than the consumer area, affecting as well the business-to-business sector: this will lead to an ICT-driven economy. The Executive Director and Vice President of Alkemy S.p.A. continued by underlining that, therefore, the digital revolution is starting to affect the fields of operations, the distribution chain and those businesses between market operators and public administration structures. As explained by Vittorio Massone, these sectors are slower in changing, but can have a profound impact across the economic field. What we can be sure of, he concluded, is that the transformation that is affecting the business-to-business sectors will start to move on a scale, and this will result in a real transformation in the next twenty years: this is a new debut for the digital revolution.
