Digital Meets: Look into the Future is a new online format looking at the changes to the digital ecosystem and highlighting the benefits of technology in different fields, trying to imagine future scenarios in which each of us will have a role to play. In each episode, Dario Pagani, Head of Digital & Information Technology at Eni and an expert from the world of innovation, moderated by Paolo Sangalli, Eni Digital & Information Technology, discuss the main trends of the digital transformation, with the emphasis always on people.
The cross-cutting and integrated approach identifies opportunities, challenges and solutions for the digital ecosystem. We’ll explore these themes together in each episode:
The digital sphere as a social right
The digitalization path of large companies and SMEs
Collaborative Robotics: how technology empowers human value
Digital transformation: strategic approaches to generate value
Dario Pagani and Filippo Scorza look at the issue of digital equality, understood as the role that technologies play in levelling out inequalities. This is a dialogue on the opportunities that digital technology creates for people and developing countries, a discussion on experiences and the action that individuals and companies can take to support a more equal world.

In this episode, we look at the digitalization process for both large Italian companies, with a high technological impact, and SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises), which often struggle due to their circumstances and being a long way off full digitalization. Dario Pagani and Irene Sardellitti discuss these two different contexts, analysing the differences and similarities that drive the transformations of these businesses, and emphasising the role digital culture has in the evolutionary process.
