The Government of Spain announces the new digital plan for all types of companies
As has been revealed, the true objective pursued by the Government of Spain with this new digital plan is to help companies in their migration from their current state to a digital state, thus favoring the modernization of the industrial fabric and its transformation towards a smart industry where use is made of new technologies as important today as web analytics, cloud computing, big data, cybersecurity, advanced robotics, internet of things, virtual reality and, of course, 3D printing.
At this point, I think it is convenient to mention that the Government of Spain today has two very similar programs in place. The first, aimed at drive the digital transformation of SMEs through individualized advice by specialized agents, with a budget of up to 5 million euros while, secondly, we find a program aimed at professional associations and associations.
