Normally, it is difficult to distinguish which trends or challenges will have to be faced year after year and, in the case of technology, the difficulty is aggravated given the speed of market evolution.
Marta Gil, Sacyr’s Director of Strategy and Innovation, explained in an interview with Business Insider Spain which, in her opinion, will be the areas to pay attention to during the year that has just begun.
First, the executive points to artificial intelligence (AI) as the trend to highlight in 2021, especially for the company where she works.
Gil explains that, for Sacyr, the issue of data exploitation has become its fundamental focus in the different challenges they are posing in the businesses in which they operate.
From digital twins to the advance of drones: how the pandemic has reinforced the role of innovation within companies, according to Sacyr’s Director of Strategy and Innovation.
According to the directive, approximately 80% of the projects they are currently implementing incorporate artificial intelligence, and 100% do so in a certain area.
In addition, he has also highlighted 5G as another of the trends that will stand out during 2021, as this is the year in which its definitive deployment will take place after months of laying the foundations.
In fact, Gil recalls that the European Next Generation funds will be the final push needed for its deployment, in line with Spain’s big bet on this technology.
“This will allow companies that are not as technological as we are to be able to start raising much easier use cases that have 5G as a base,” he points out.
There is no doubt: ‘Big Tech’ sees 5G as the technological trend that will mark 2021.
Looking to a more future era, the head of Strategy and Innovation believes that within a few years, “and we’re not talking about much,” technologies that are known today as “innovative” are going to become fully embedded within companies.
Gil explains that this is the case of the cloud or collaborative tools, which 3 or 4 years ago sounded like something “super futuristic” and are now unquestionable.
