Exponential technologies and hyperconnectivity
Information and communication technologies are constantly evolving to face the biggest challenge for companies: digital reinvention.
As a result of the impact of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) over the past 30 years, the valuation of high-tech assets maintains a high growth rate.
Historically, small companies with high potential that have received capital in their early stages are now leaders in their industries.

The importance of blockchain lies in its multiple applications and possible uses in the future, such as the maintenance of records, intellectual property and crowdfunding, among others.
Internet of Things (IoT)
Smart toasters, refrigerators and even dog collars with integrated technology are some of the devices connected to the web and are part of the IoT. Devices communicate among each other through an internal network or between different networks, creating a more connected world.
The link between devices and data storage for its customization is based on Big Data and can be used for individual, occupational and business applications. The coverage and quality of internet data generates more contextualized and responsive interactions that go beyond a single screen.
Internet of Things suppliers allow companies, governments and public authorities to reframe the way they deliver services and produce goods. Thereby, they can become more efficient, save time, money and even emissions, creating more sustainable companies.

Companies such as banks and fintech are getting to know many categories such as : SaaS (Software as a Service), IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service), PaaS (Platform as Service), and FaaS (Functions as a Service), among others.
The Information Technologies (IT) we have mentioned shape to be the backbone of business innovation and transformation, especially if we consider that to carry out the digitization process correctly is similar to the process of a caterpillar evolving into a butterfly; but if it is done in an incomplete or uninterested way, the caterpillar only grows but does not transform.
This way, and taking into consideration that Latin America has only 5% of the IT industry, the promotion and development of high-quality technology allows companies to evolve and improve their capabilities in the future, positioning them as high-value investment opportunities.
