How technological advances and collaborative processes between companies will positively impact the future of business

*by Vinícius Boemeke, Pulsus’ CEO*

The speed of transformation that technological advancement has brought goes far beyond 5G technology. It highlights the necessity of establishing industry-wide collaboration in order to improve value delivery, whether for a corporate customer or the final consumer.

During Mobile World Congress 2022, which took place in February, it was possible to notice that this topic is increasingly in evidence. MWC 2022 had fewer exhibitors and a smaller physical size than the 2019 event, in which I also took part, but the rise in collaboration was quite important.

Integrated technologies and more collaboration between companies

It was possible to observe that more and more news related to products and services that integrate technological solutions from different companies are being launched on the market in the Startup environment of the event (4YFN – Four Years From Now), which connects large companies (such as Telefónica – Wayra, Mapfre), and new entrepreneurs to large exhibitors.

Companies that previously worked on their own technology are now able to envision a collaborative future thanks to the new scenario, which promises a paradigm shift.

As an illustration of this phenomenon, Samsung introduced its newest smartphones and tablets while emphasizing as a differentiator the Microsoft-integrated solutions that increase productivity.

Already in cooperation with Google, Samsung emphasized the advancement of its smartwatches, which now use Wear OS not the Korean manufacturer’s proprietary operating system. This last collaboration is even highlighted on the stands of both businesses.

The articulated robot was introduced to the event by Boston Dynamics in partnership with IBM. The aim behind it was to develop a highly mobile device that could detect various surroundings and terrains, allowing the automation of activities like regular inspection and capture of data, assuring the security, reliability, and regularity of the data collection.

This phenomenon may also be seen in integrated solutions used in the industry. Accenture is showing in its sector as the sum of several forces that may significantly advance the automobile sector.

The solution, already implemented in a real case, applies the use of artificial intelligence (AI), developed by Accenture itself, together with a 5G network provided by a partner telephony operator, used for external communication, and integrated with another 5G network. private for internal communication.

For everything to work as expected, hardware from other partners was used as part of the solution, including Siemens, which operated in the Microsoft cloud (Azure), another important partnership that collaborated to exponentially improve the quality analysis capacity of the vehicle assembly lines.

The AI ​​solution may discover and notify issues, separating the units that exhibit failures for the quality area, by using a camera to collect images of cars moving through the production line and analyzing them in real-time.
