The floor to the experts

According to Cristina Giotto, President and Director of ated-ICT Ticino: «The professional figure of the Digital Collaboration Specialist is characterized by being the director and driving force behind the digital transformation in its working environment. It is the person who governs the implementation of digital strategies and responsible for the professional use of digital products dedicated to communication, administration or other crucial areas of activity of any organization. And thanks to the great knowledge and use of programs and technological processes, combined with methodical know-how and a strong customer orientation, the Digital Collaboration Specialist will ensure that all, customers and collaborators, can be ready to face the challenges of everyday digital life. It is, therefore, a very specialized professional profile, which all organizations will have to equip themselves, as, moreover, we observed recently, since the canton has also introduced with the appointment of Milena Folletti, the first Delegate for the Digital Transformation of the Cantonal Administration».

For Luca Mauriello, Director of the Federal Examination Preparation Course of “Digital Collaboration Specialist”, trainer and CEO of Swisstecnology and Academy Formats and Vice President of ated-ICT Ticino: The course that we have devised consists of 12 modules and is aimed at those professionals who already deal with or intend to deal with the management of technological and digital processes in different organizations. The specific topics will cover: Multimedia, Business Engineering, Business Management, Data Management, Project Management, Service Management. In particular, the ideal candidates come from the professional field of ICT, or operate in the commercial and sales sector, or profiles in human resources or that oversee the areas of business management. It is worth remembering here that in the Swiss population between 16 and 65 years old only 21% have a good level of skills in digitization and 1 person in 3 (that is, 33% of people) do not have the basic skills in the digital field. For this reason, those who will attend the course of preparation for the federal examination of “Digital Collaboration Specialist”, will ensure in the future the skills necessary to address the digital challenges in companies and public administrations».
