Ericsson: towards connectivity and dematerialization

Ericsson: towards connectivity and dematerialization
Ericsson's Consumer & IndustryLab report provides an up-to-date insight into how companies are working towards their transition to the new world, formatted digitally and increasingly disconnected from the umbilical cord with paper. This path has far more radical and profound consequences than one might imagine, but its ineluctability is at the same time a certainty: companies have a specific duty to work to arrive as soon as possible to new methods and tools in every processing phase.

In view of the inevitable change that Mario Draghi recommended to take into account as early as mid 2020, companies find themselves in 2021 having to impact on a profoundly changed reality, in which the working methods are changing and to which it is necessary to react with two ingredients linked in a double thread: digitization and dematerialization. Two sides of the same coin, point of arrival and departure of the transition that brings information from physical to electronic media, but above all paradigms of the world that arrives and the world that is about to leave us.

“Today”, Ericsson explains, “almost 7 out of 10 companies interviewed have reached or exceeded half of their dematerialization path. Instead of focusing on the office, 6 out of 10 companies plan to move to extended reality (XR), and, more specifically, to augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR), cloud and mobile technology devices. " And he continues, underlining the importance of connectivity in such a context: "With this change, cellular connectivity will be a key factor for the transition to remote work and for greater profitability. In addition to savings on office maintenance, companies will easily be able to set up new branches, employ staff overseas, or run a cloud-based e-commerce business around the world with cloud solutions. "

La digitization represents a huge opportunity to increase the productivity and sustainability of companies. Indeed, digital technology is a key factor in addressing major challenges such as reducing CO2 emissions and the use of materials

Change that we are facing draws on efficiency and sustainability as new design paradigms, but it is the fabric of profound changes in habits and this can only lead to profound changes from many points of view (social, organizational, urban planning, mobility and more yet). Always and in any case, connectivity will be at the center of change as an enabling element, without which one cannot help but remain perched on the “old”. Broadband and 5G are no longer a mere necessity in terms of performance: they are the limit between an inside and an outside, a before and an after.
