Nowadays, there are hardly any barrier to information access and everything is transmitted in seconds. We can see every day how large volumes of data are handled and how ICTs affects virtually anything we do. Today we can open a bank account from our sofa or use a “cloud” service to share the latest project we have worked on and, at the same time, know that all our data is protected.
At Gradiant we incorporate our vision and knowledge of telecommunication technologies into the processes and products that companies develop. We bring our expertise from the point of view of connectivity, intelligence and security to work hand in hand with the industry from our surroundings.
