The company will work with private and public sector organisations and governments to help the country realise its full digital potential
Cisco is helping to progress Spain’s digital transformation under its Country Digital Acceleration (CDA) programme.
The company will work and share investment between governments, businesses and communities to advance citizens’ quality of life, create jobs and enhance global economic competitiveness.
Called ‘Digitaliza’ in Spanish, CDA will align with the country’s digitisation goals. It will collaborate with the public sector, the industry, including ICT, energy, finance, industrial companies, service providers, small medium businesses (SMBs), start-ups from any vertical, and partners plus academia, to address the following areas:
“Through Country Digital Acceleration, Cisco has the opportunity to positively impact communities, governments, and businesses around the world,” said Chuck Robbins, chairman and CEO, Cisco. “We are excited to support the long-term economic goals of Spain and benefit their citizens in the digital economy.”
“Our aim is to place Spain as a reference in digital transformation, contribute to economic growth and advance towards a more inclusive society”
The CDA will build on Cisco’s 25-year commitment to helping Spain realise its full digital potential. Some examples of initiatives already being implemented are:
“Our aim is to place Spain as a reference in digital transformation, contribute to economic growth and advance towards a more inclusive society,” said Santiago Solanas, vice president, Southern Europe, Cisco. “The pillars of the Digitaliza program have been designed to help our country, cities, companies and the entire innovation ecosystem in capturing the maximum value from digitisation.”
Cisco developed the concept of Country Digital Acceleration to stimulate global digitisation. So far, more than 300 projects have been launched on smarter transport, smart cities, e-health, cyber-security and connected education.
