Connectivity with 5G technology represents a great opportunity for businesses and citizens: from industry to media, from healthcare to video games, to the world of insurance. 5G is the glue that binds Big Data, IoT, artificial intelligence and Industry 4.0, a range of activities that previous 3G and 4G standards could not enable. It is not just about faster connectivity, it is about a revolution in use cases. A very concrete example: in next-generation ambulances, it will be possible to perform in-depth triage for patients in serious condition, connected in real time with the destination hospital, throughout the transport.
However, at the industry level, it is necessary to ask what challenges companies will face to include 5G in their processes. This is a central issue because the adoption of this new connectivity cannot be entrusted solely to IT departments, but deep transformation plans are needed, affecting all business divisions, and rethinking the use cases that will be enabled.
A strategy is needed to evolve the connectivity that companies already use. So, the set of system functionalities changes, as well as their perception by the user, and this change must be planned in detail.
