Digital Innovation Day 2015 – We Say Thank You.

“Time to take off”, this is the recap of the continuous spirit of last year’s Digital Innovation Day. In addition to the enthusiastic feedback regarding presentations, showcases and the event’s process, the euphoric mood at the Digital Innovation Day could literally be felt.

Eyes set on the digital future: At the Digital Innovation Day, Telefónica established the most important trends and developments from the digital economy. The visitors could enjoy a harmonious mixture of practice, insights and entertainment. The topic of last year’s event was digital business – and value-added models for medium-sized companies – Mittelstand 4.0.

Many medium-sized companies can tell you a thing or two about it: Internet of Things or Industry 4.0 are keywords everyone is talking about, but if you are looking for usable solutions for your own business, you often face insecure silence. Therefore, it is no surprise, that many new technologies are left to the big players and large corporations.

That is wrong. This is the digital moment for medium-sized companies. With the motto Mittelstand 4.0, Telefónica took up a critical topic, which met great interest within the sector. The demand for practical digital solutions is and has been doubtlessly enormous.
