Technological leadership
Lagging behind target deadlines for implementing key technological programs
  • Parallel development and support for existing IT systems
  • Introduction of a single control and software management authority and migration to the new platform
  • Support for infrastructure for developments based on current technologies and backing up all data
  • Analysis and end-to-end updating of business processes
Failure to adopt new technologies created by our innovative laboratories
  • Regular synchronization of activities with business tasks – focus on applied research
  • Continuing to monitor trends in collaboration with our partners – technology companies, universities and research institutions
