The future is now: the power of tech on display at Mobile World Congress
When Stefanini joined thousands of technology professionals from across the globe at Mobile World Congress (MWC), in Barcelona, it underlined our belief that cutting-edge technologies like AI, virtual reality and the Internet of Things aren’t simply exciting prospects for the future – they’re transforming the way business is being done, right now.
The sorts of products that appeared last year as prototypes, full of exciting potential, are now fully developed and available on the market.
Whether its connected devices, robots, wearable tech or driverless cars, the future has arrived.
It wasn’t just the speed of technological advancement that stood out at MWC, however. It was also the way this technology has been democratized, so that entrepreneurs and startups are able to compete with some of the world’s biggest players.
This is particularly exciting for Stefanini, because through our Open Startups initiative, we are working with new businesses to help them realize their full potential through the transformative power of new technology. We don’t just partner with these startups because they are forward-thinking innovators, but also because they have the power to make a positive difference to the world and make people’s lives better.
Tiago Machado, Business Development Manager at Stefanini, attended the event. He explains: “MWC was a fascinating showcase of the brightest and best businesses, demonstrating how cutting-edge technologies can make a real difference to people’s lives – not in the future, but today. It’s clear that digitalization, AI, virtual reality and the Internet of Things aren’t simply buzz terms, but technologies and trends with successful real-world applications.”
Tiago was joined at the event by Silviu Panait, Business Development Manager at Stefanini. Together, they presented Stefanini’s Internet of Things, digital marketing and mobile solutions, as well as Stefanini Dive, a unique methodology to create innovative products, services and solutions by allowing teams to prototype and validate digital transformation within 40 hours.
Silviu adds: “Innovation is right at the heart of Stefanini’s business. MWC was an excellent opportunity for us to meet with like-minded professionals and uncover how we can use the latest tech developments to drive pioneering change.”
