The success of the Digital Transformation of companies is a complex path and depends on many factors throughout the life of the project. This transformation is critical to maintaining your competitiveness in the marketplace and to your own business survival.

Our colleague José Luis Galdón, Senior Project Manager of Euro-Funding, comments in the following interview with Sonia Gogova, Innovation & Competitive Intelligence Senior Specialist of Axis Corporte, the factors that prevent the Digital Transformation of many companies.

Companies can encounter these difficulties both in the planning phase of the digital transformation, as well as at the beginning of each specific project or during the execution of the projects.

In the following interview, they delve into these barriers, stressing the importance of carefully evaluating each project or investment, with the aim of requesting financing in the program in which it best fits.

The active collaboration between Axis Corporate and Euro-Funding is precisely oriented towards the search for external financing that manages to promote transformation projects through the Next Generation EU Funds and/or the traditional lines of financing and European and national aid.
