Digital transformation is changing the world as we knew it in the 20th century. This change poses new challenges, uncertainty and paradigm shifts.


The “Spain 2019 Digital Society Report” presents a panorama which reflects the current roll-out of telecommunications infrastructures, the level of implementation of the most advanced technologies, the current state of digital life for Spanish people, and developments in this regard in Spain’s Autonomous Communities.

Spain is currently immersed in the fourth revolution which centres on digitalisation and data. This digital transformation, while presenting challenges and uncertainty, also has a very positive side which, in turn, offers real opportunities. As a case in point, the current Covid-19 crisis has forced us to rethink virtually overnight the way in which we live, study, work and enjoy our leisure time. In this regard, Spain’s high level of digitalisation has meant that the adaptation has been swift, ensuring the continuity of many essential activities.

According to the ‘Spain 2019 Digital Society Report’ published by Fundación Telefónica, in order to ensure this digital transformation the digitalisation of industry needs to be speeded up, above all for SMEs and the self-employed, with Spanish people given more digital training. These two factors are the keys to reviving the economy after Covid-19 and creating employment.

The launch of #sdiE19 on Thursday 21 May was more digital than ever. The event featured Carmen Morenés, director general of Fundación Telefónica, Pablo Gonzalo, head of Digital Culture and Espacio Fundación Telefónica and the journalist Marta García Aller.
