In the digital transformation process currently under way in our country, the Fashion world cannot shy away, of course. The Digital revolution is still a great opportunity that Italian companies must seize not only to evolve in terms of Innovation and Technology, but also to improve and better manage the company’s processes, to make better decisions and to open towards new markets as well.
Lately, a positive trend has been registered in our country as regards the digitalization process in Italy: +1.7% the positive evolution of companies in the IT sector that will drive the evolution of the markets, and +2.7% the software growth according to some Assintel data concerning 2015. The budgets allocated to the evolution of the companies have improved too: +37% in 2016, compared to +31% in 2015. In Gartner’s forecast, revenues are expected to grow by 80% globally starting from 2020 thanks to the implementation of the digital strategies. IDC believes that companies boosting their digital initiatives and actions will double, from 22% currently to 50% as of 2020.
Innovation for companies today means to have an opener approach to all that can “renew” their way of doing business, and then renovates the processes, changes and extends their digital innovation method, optimizes resources. But a company is really able to be innovative, to be “up to date" if can develop the concept of INNOVATION as corporate culture, involving employees and collaborators and making them feel as "innovators" and "creatives", able to make a strong added value to the business.
The concept of creativity binds perfectly to the fashion world, including textiles, apparel, footwear, leather and leather goods, with EUR62 billion sales in 2015 and a +1.4% growth compared to the previous year. This is a relevant sector in our country, which contributes to driving our economy.
