SII Concatel participates in the 3rd edition of Canal Innova meeting in Barcelona

Canal Innova is a platform created by Grupo Norte to share experiences of success in innovation field. La Pedrera, historic building in Barcelona, was the place chosen to host more than 200 professionals with the objective of sharing successful experiences about innovation culture, improvement, creativity, improvement processes and implementation of real innovations.


More than 200 people welcomed yesterday the third professional day of Canal Innova, organized by Grupo Norte and presented by the journalist Olga Viza. An event that has already become, despite its short history, an essential meeting point for innovation professionals.

This event was attended by leading experts in the field of innovation and enterprise, including Miquel Barceló (Doctor in Industrial Engineering),   José Rolando (Grupo Norte President) and our CEO, Joan Carrillo, who participated in the experts meeting held after the keynote address by Marta Martinez, President of IBM Spain, Greece, Portugal and Israel.

The emergence of new technologies in the economy has had -and already has- a high impact on the relationship models between all actors in society, from businesses, organizations, institutions and people. This leads us inevitably to face the arrival of a new economic model, highlighting the need to refocus business strategies.

Joan Carrillo spoke about those new challenges that companies must face, for example the fact to leverage and capitalize on the enormous amount of data generated from any connected device. According to Joan Carrillo companies and governments seek to achieve this great challenge. The CEO of SII Concatel said the best way to achieve it is to understand that innovation is not only one part of the company, but an attitude. So the talent is the foundation that underpins innovation.


'We must learn to manage the fear of change to take advantage of the significant opportunities that are emerging steadily' 


Joan Carrillo, representing SII Concatel, demonstrated once again its commitment with current and future needs about the new needs of this sector, and reaffirmed its commitment with innovation and development, with the aim of helping society to address this paradigm shift.

The professional day continued with a third section, starring by some prominent companies of our country as CaixaBank, Telefónica or DOMO, who spoke about success stories through innovation and development. So, after a very productive morning, the innovation and talent event concluded. SII Concatel wants to congratulate the organizers and speakers, and thank the participants for their involvement and support.
