The revolution has just started, according to Vittorio Massone

The digital revolution is at the beginning of a new debut: according to the expert Vittorio Massone, the changes that have occurred in the past 20 years will have their full impact only in the next 20 years, and will involve all business sectors. The current Executive Director and Vice President of Alkemy S.p.A. explains that, while the revolution has shown changes in the consumer area, this transformation is now also starting to affect those sectors that are considered mature, such as logistics, agriculture, and industry. Indeed, after affecting the areas of operations, supply chain, B2B, B2G and, later, financial and insurance services, security and the IT sector, the revolution will bring about a great change in mature sectors as well. These changes, as the expert writes, will lead to an ICT-driven economy and society and will show big impacts on the companies' business model. Furthermore, Vittorio Massone adds that the digital evolution will also involve further sectors, such as customers, distributors and suppliers, taking into account new competitors, as those represented by the "digital natives". "Your margin is my opportunity" is, according to the manager, the new motto of the digital revolution: the competition between companies will be aimed to control end customers, strategic assets and critical skills.
