OVERVIEW

Enterprise strategic choices are heavily influenced by “changes” modifying the operating context. One of the most important is the “digitalization”: currently every business is a digital one. Some digital technologies, listed in the aim, will have a special impact on future industrial strategies, allowing the development of smart cities, manufacturing, factory and agriculture. The knowledge, use and application of these technologies will be essential to make decisions in strategic environments.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course is aimed at providing the know-how about advanced ICT technology that has or can have a deep impact on enterprise strategic choices, such as IoT – Internet of Things, 5G, Satellites, Automated and Connected Mobility, Cloud Computing, Big Data Analytics, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, and Cybersecurity.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The lectures are aimed at providing theoretical and practical knowledge about advanced Information and Communication Technologies which will influence strategic choices in the next future allowing the development of new paradigms and services such as smart cities, manufacturing, factory and agriculture.

The lectures will provide a basic know-how about networking technologies such as IP and TCP/UDP architectures and will develop this information to explain concepts such as Cloud Computing and Internet of Things; 5G and Satellite Technology, Automated and Connected Mobility; Big Data Analytics, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, and Cybersecurity.
