What is really important for business success?
Last year, companies of all sizes and governments struggled to figure out how to act during a pandemic. Many landed in the red, even went bankrupt, and on the other hand, the organizations that made the most of the very difficult situation proved to be good examples. In all branches and sectors of the economy, many have succeeded with implementation of solution at a rapid pace. Trends such as digitalisation, customer focus, sound business and human resources, along with social responsibility are rapidly being implemented. Whoever ignores them is punished.
New robotic coworkers
Have you ever described a co-worker who works diligently, extremely accurately, rarely smiles and does not express emotions or let himself be distracted, as a robot? Well, in the future, there will be more and more robots as your co-workers. Cobots. A report by the International Robotics Association (World Robotics 2020 Industrial Report) states that a record 2.7 million industrial robots are already operating worldwide.
Industry 5.0 is already knocking on the door
New year, new industry someone could say. Although most companies have not even implemented the Industry 4.0 concept in practice, they face a new challenge. Yes, you guessed it, Industry 5.0. And unlike the world of business software, where the new version usually brings some fixes to the old version and (possibly) some new functionality, the industry knows different leaps when it comes to development. These leaps are to say the least of evolutionary nature, if not a whole revolution itself. The next phase of industrialization is certainly ahead of us. What does it bring us?
Are you ready for 2021?
Almost everyone with whom we cooperated last year asked me, what I expect in 2021. In short: I expect another unusual year, a different year from those we were used to in the last decade. It is already clear for companies, that they will need to fight for each and every customer, not just with the competition, but also with the insidious virus.
