The coronavirus pandemic has accelerated the digital transformation processes of companies and public organizations, as a way to resist bad times. The commitment to technology drives economic growth, allowing the activity to be maintained while complying with safety regulations to prevent infections.

From Huawei they observe five great pillars of the digital age, starting with connectivity, where the new generation of 5G enters. The rest are computing, cloud services, artificial intelligence, and applications. During his participation in a technology forum, precisely about 5G, the CEO of Huawei Spain, Tony Jin Yong , has shelled out his vision of what is happening and where the market should go .

«Each euro invested in digitization will represent the contribution of three to the growth of the industry» , says this manager, who explains that «this trend has already been observed, for example in China, where the The digital economy, which accounted for a third of gross domestic product last year, has contributed two-thirds of its growth. ”

During the last few months, “it has been necessary to accelerate the recovery of the economy and help make society more resistant to the problems of the physical world. In this sense ”, he says,“ profound changes have occurred in all areas of work, in daily life and in education, among others. In fact, distance training and telemedicine have become the norm and online platforms are becoming more useful ”.

But one field that would pose challenges when undertaking digitization is industrial, which requires remote control of machinery and artificial vision, among other things. And where the CEO of Huawei considers that the telecommunications sector does not have much experience. «Unlike the consumer market, he points out, which has» very standardized «requirements that» fit well with most users in the world, the enterprise market has very diverse and specific requirements for each use. «

But we have to keep moving forward. Tony Jin Yong highlights that «Spain has a very clear strategy for its 2025 Digital Agenda» and that Huawei wants to contribute in «5G with the aim of contributing to the country’s leadership in this technology, just as it is in fiber coverage.» The company collaborates in three Red.es projects, which «cover approximately fifty use cases in eight different verticals in Andalusia, the Valencian Community and Galicia».
