    Smart Home: Home is where the IoT is

    €190.00
    +vat
    The home is one of the most dynamic fields in IoT, with some of the highest market growth rates (+40% compared to 2018, now worth €520 million). But if we compare the absolute value with other countries such as Germany, the UK or France, Italy is still some way behind. Consumers are playing an increasingly important role: the level of awareness is growing, as is the number of users who install their own devices, and those who actually use the smart functions in objects they have purchased. This opens up considerable growth prospects for companies operating in this market.

    Electronic invoicing: a chance for change

    €190.00
    +vat
    Electronic invoicing presents a great opportunity for Italy: digitalize the industrial heart, starting with the relationships between business partners. However, this will only be possible if companies can start to recognize the benefits of this “forced digitalization” and if they understand how to extend it to other processes.

    Identity and Mobile: The opportunities inside your smartphone

    €110.00
    +vat
    Compared to traditional identity, digital identity can contain other types of information other than basic personal details, such as information related to the online interactions of the business or individual. Smartphones, due to the technology they contain and the fact that they have become ubiquitous in everyday life, can play a fundamental role in the area of digital identity: many people are rarely without their smartphone at hand, making it a more constant companion than their wallet. These technological characteristics and the particular way in which they are used make smartphones a very useful and adaptable device for identity management, for both physical and digital identities.
