I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the phrase “Ok, Boomer”—that popular retort Millennials often use to joke about my generation’s perceived lack of knowledge with modern-day technology. To be honest, I laugh a lot at those jokes but that’s because I relate more to the disconnect between digital master and novice.
The beginning of the year is always a period to let the imagination fly and dream of achieving everything we have always had in mind, but we have never achieved. Spending more time with family and friends, leading a healthier life or traveling are some examples of the most frequent New Year resolutions.

Digital Transformation is a journey, not an immediate shift from one state to another. That said, the desired destination is the same for every business, regardless of size or industry. It’s a place where you’re moving faster, making better decisions, and competing in the digital era.
Employees are the best voice of any company's image. If they are informed and motivated, they will be more productive in their daily lives. They will be proud to use the company’s tools and services, will speak well of the company to their friends, family and contacts which will help in attracting new talent. The solution is obvious. Communication, recognition and encouragement. Giving workers the instruments, they need and the opportunities to feel useful and to turn ideas into differentiating projects that can change the world.
Digital Transformation is essential for the survival of companies. Only those companies that meet the needs of their customers will be competitive in the market.

The UK presents one of the busiest air traffic control environments in the world and it’s set to become even more challenging. Air travel numbers are on the rise and that means airspace is getting ever more complex to control while ensuring safety and reducing the environmental impact.
I recently read an article in the Wall Street Journal about the need for companies to take into account what their employees’ needs are when rolling out new technologies. Many new technology initiatives fail because employees aren’t involved in the process at some level — whether it’s helping design a solution to their problems or providing regular feedback to their leadership teams on what’s working and what they need to be successful.
A recent Gartner report states: “Organizations with a cross-discipline cloud strategy are more likely to find success in cloud initiatives and recognize the full benefits of cloud.”
Creating attractive environments and more efficient processes is the best way to improve our productivity. For this reason, the key is to focus on the results and manage, communicate and set objectives based on their achievement. Definitely the architecture of a stable business requires a motivated and prepared team to face the challenges that will arise in the future.
