Innovation moves the world

Isidro López Magdaleno

Vicepresidente de Magtel

Innovation moves the world. It has always done so, since the beginning of humanity. What has changed is that it has been called by different names depending on each era.

In recent decades, innovation has become a part of a combination, as a third element, and it is referred to as R&D&I, which stands for Research, Development, and Innovation. And in recent years, it has taken on a life of its own, as I believe it was inevitable, in the business and social world as a synonym for progress and transformation – a transformation that turns ideas into value and wealth.

I agree with your perspective. That is indeed a fitting definition of innovation in today’s context. It has rightfully earned its capitalization in the combination (R&D&I) because it embodies the true entrepreneurial spirit – the ability to transform an idea or entrepreneurial initiative into collective value and wealth.

That’s impressive! Starting over thirty years ago, Magtel embarked on a journey to create value through entrepreneurial initiative, particularly in the telecommunications sector, which was the technological forefront during the early 1990s.

Indeed, today, just like in the past, and probably in the future as well, technology applied to various fields of human activity remains a significant driver of innovation. In fact, a considerable portion of technological advancements, especially with the expansion of the digital universe, are pure innovation in themselves.

Telecommunications is one of the three major divisions of Magtel, alongside Energy and Infrastructure. It encompasses key areas of activity such as the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of ICT networks and infrastructure, as well as the provision of Smart services and process outsourcing.

The division, well-established in engineering activities and deployment of Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) networks, has also expanded its involvement in I+M (Installation and Maintenance) services. Additionally, it actively participates in the adaptation of infrastructure for modern 5G mobile communication networks.

In your digital transformation area, your focus is on enhancing the competitiveness of your clients by transforming their key business processes and managing their auxiliary processes. This approach enables you to build a more interconnected and sustainable world, which is the core purpose of your company.

Certainly, all of this is part of a strategic journey where people are the protagonists. The ability to innovate in any field, and especially in technological applications, is what characterizes human beings. It is the innate human capacity for innovation that drives progress and pushes the boundaries of what is possible.

Córdoba indeed has tremendous innovative potential within the context of Andalusia, which itself boasts numerous examples of innovative ideas that have been transformed into successful and promising companies. These enterprises are advancing at the pace set by the tools and processes provided by technological innovation. It’s exciting to see how these companies are embracing innovation to drive growth and contribute to the overall development of the region.

There is no doubt that we still need significant entrepreneurial strength, but I have no doubt that we are on the right path, despite the circumstances. After all, overcoming adversity has always been and will continue to be the essence of innovation. Throughout history, innovation has emerged as a response to challenges and obstacles, driving progress and finding new solutions. It is through innovation that we can navigate through difficult times and create a better future.
