THE PRIVILEGE AND THE INSPIRATION OF CREATING POWERFUL TECHNOLOGIES

Technology per se could not provoke such a revolution in corporate organism if there is no cumulated knowledge of products, solutions, services, business processes, and models of work which are becoming available in real time to all people who accept the technology and use it

The fact that ICT is the prime mover of world innovation and productivity is well-known and frequently used, and even it can be found in the introductory text of this year’s invitation of Vidi magazine for participation of companies for the award for innovation in high technologies or for the best implementation of ICT technology for business advancement. Somebody could say that I emphasize this fact about ICT, as a basis of development of all innovation, precisely because the company where I work, Ericsson Nikola Tesla, is the largest regional ICT center and at the same time the largest Croatian exporter of knowledge precisely in the domain of high technology. However, it is difficult to open the topic of ICT importance for modern economy and world economy, and not to touch on basic arguments which argue in favor of development and usage of technology for advancement of business processes and companies’ “health”. It is correct that I am leading one stable and successful company which not only produces ICT, which implies development of software products and solutions of highest level of success, but we use this same technology on daily basis in all our activities.

I think precisely because of this, as producers and consumers of ICT technology, solutions, and services, we can best examine all aspects of importance of development and usage of all modern ICT products, processes, and tools which are available to us today, as well as their impact on business success. We come to similar conclusion in both respect - modern ICT technology includes development oriented strategy, competent people, their cumulated knowledge of products and processes, new business models, system integration, and innovation in everything they do. It is not only the matter of trendy products which are bought for impression, but first of all they are powerful tools which functionally and organizationally link all our processes and people, make all relevant information always available for making right decisions, and high-quality and quick support to every business and every employee. Technology per se could not provoke such a revolution in corporate organism if there is no cumulated knowledge of products, solutions, services, business processes, and models of work which are becoming available in real time to all people who accept the technology and use it. It is almost unbelievable potential which through development and research activities and other expert knowledge people have invested in technology over a period of time and are now enjoying benefits of their own material and intellectual investment. By using modern ICT solution, cumulated knowledge gains unimagined possibilities of creative usage and upgrading, which in the world of fast and frequent changes represents a basis on which the most ambitious goals can be achieved. This is valid for all subjects, organizations, and business activities whether it is the matter of small or large, global, regional or locally oriented companies or individuals.

From the historical point of view, actual power of knowledge, which has been freed precisely by using modern ICT technologies, cannot be compared with anything. Because of this I believe that it is a privilege and big inspiration to participate in creation of precisely these powerful technologies which help men and make their work and life better and more productive. And of course, our satisfaction is so much bigger when on numerous examples and world references we can show impressive and actual results of our partners, buyers, suppliers, and wider community which in their business activities use these modern ICT solutions. So, regardless of the side you are on - to be fortunate to create technology or just to use it, the conclusion is the same - there is no modern and competitive economy or developed society without development and implementation of modern information and communication solutions.
