The Silicon Review
Information technology has transformed industries and people’s lives in numerous ways across the globe. Simply put, information technology, or IT, is the use of computers and relevant software to store, retrieve, transmit and assess information. There is perhaps no industry that computers and software have not touched, and by introducing digitization to existing business structures, IT has managed to maximize efficiency, bolster employee output and drive greater value for customers. IT Informatik Iberia Digital (now IT-Digitalización 4.0 Industrial Intl. S.L.U) is one of the leading IT solutions providers in Europe.
Founded over 30 years ago in Germany, the founders of IT-Digitalizacion 4.0 realized the enormous potential for the utilization of computing systems across industries in light of the beginning of the computer revolution happening across the Atlantic in America.
Launched as a consultancy firm, IT-Digitalizacion 4.0 faced its usual share of hurdles in its early years. From grappling with financial issues to hiring a core team that shared the vision of the founder, IT-Digitalizacion 4.0 steadily made its way through the meandering corridors of the early years of the digital revolution. But perhaps the biggest challenge was being beholden to an investor who was located in another country, governed by laws and regulatory measures that were completely different from those in Germany.
It was this dependence on a single investor who was outside the country that proved to be a hindrance. But, the team at the budding company decided to make good on this issue and formulated plans to decentralize operations run from the headquarters in Germany and mitigate any issues that arose from depending on a single entity.
IT-Digitalizacion 4.0 had originally decided to launch its consultancy in light of the success of IBM and the early days of SAP, Germany’s own homegrown enterprise software giant. After overcoming hurdles that are common for upcoming firms and solving its problems associated with dealing in foreign regulation, IT-Digitalizacion 4.0 set about expanding its business and venturing into newer markets to consolidate its position. Being into IT and software consultancy, digitalization was one of the first endeavors that the company undertook.
By enabling numerous companies as well as government agencies to digitize their existing information, IT-Digitalizacion 4.0 smoothened out any form of kinks and creases in administration and oversight, allowing for a greater degree of efficiency and manageability of workloads. After initial successes in this sector, IT-Digitalizacion 4.0 moved into other areas to offer solutions for a diverse array of software requirements of the hugely competitive market. One of those fields is Industry 4.0.
The fourth industrial revolution, built on the foundations provided by the third has been unfolding for the last couple of decades. It is beginning to be observed not as a fundamental revolution in industrial capacities, but as a synergy of existing technologies, fusing the biological with the physical and digital. Industry 4.0 is a byproduct of the ongoing fourth industrial revolution. It entails the development of smart production systems that could automate factories, result in smart cities and help usher in entire systems that can make autonomous decisions. Realizing the scope of the rapidly emerging market, IT-Digitalizacion 4.0 has branched into providing solutions for Industry 4.0.
IT-Digitalizacion 4.0 is also into the business of providing SAP integration to customers as well as consulting on a number of requirements and development of individual software for the service desk and IT service staff. The company is a registered partner with industry giants like IBM, Microsoft, and SAP.
Driven by an aspiration to offer holistic solutions to a range of practical ideas, the company was founded in 1987 by Gunther Nagele and is today led by Richard J.R. McCullough who has a unique ability to synergize various existing industrial and technological processes to innovate new ideas for evolving markets. It is an adherence to a set of core values that has allowed IT-Digitalizacion 4.0 to stay in the game for three decades and enter the sectors that have grown in the wake of Industry 4.0. Since IT-Digitalizacion 4.0 had established itself as a leading services provider, large corporations like BMW and Bosch Siemens Hausgerät have leveraged its services. The project for Bosch was an especially important one since a large organization like that has numerous processes and IT-Digitalizacion 4.0’s solutions helped the company achieve a 75% increase in efficiency in implementation and executing those processes.
Richard McCullough firmly believes that the most important attribute of a budding entrepreneur is to be open-minded, attesting that it allows a person to absorb knowledge and skills from a broader range of sources.
