The importance of Information Technology (IT) is undeniable and so are the extensively digitalized operations in the overall economy of any business. So how do we use the Information Technology in compliance with the applicable law? How do we protect our creations? How do we create and protect the related intellectual property rights while observing other players’ rights under the specific applicable law? These are questions which require an attentive assessment (and, sometimes, a technical understanding) of the entire technology a company uses. The digitalization and process automation are significant aspects to be considered today in almost all economic sectors by any company interested in raising efficiency of its internal processes, reducing operational costs and/or the workflow process or in offering its clients attractive and user-friendly experiences.
Digitalization is a highly complex process leading to profound operational and organizational changes. Since it influences most (if not all) stages of a company’s operational workflow, digitalization entails not only a business assessment, but also a legal analysis of how it may be implemented so as to ensure legal compliance with all applicable regulations (especially considering that digitalization is not yet clearly regulated in the existing business environment).
