Digital means exchange, network, communication. For us it means offering the possibility to be always connected and access services and multimedia contents with ease and safety, on smartphones, tablets or other devices. The digital content offerings includes a gaming library, e-books and magazines, music and audiovisual contents, constantly enriched starting with major sporting events.
Digital means also smart services for enterprises, citizen, public administration: advanced platforms for cloud computing for the virtualization of applications and infrastructures, a vast selection of applications for storing and managing data or controlling energy consumption. For specialized sectors, such as the healthcare, innovative solutions promoting the development of telemedicine and the cloud managament of health information; for schools, web-based solutions to develop digital teaching environments and innovative products such as the Oliboard interactive multimedia whiteboard.
