“The first half of 2022 was very positive, both in terms of revenue and margins,” said Mario Rizzante, Chairman of Reply. “In recent months we have seen a continuous growth in investments by companies in two main areas of innovation: artificial intelligence and cloud.”
“In particular, the revolution linked to the introduction of artificial intelligence is at the beginning of a growth path that promises to be explosive,” added Mario Rizzante. In a short time, we will have artificial intelligence for everything, just as today we have a mobile app for every need.”
"What is going to happen in the next few years," Mario Rizzante continued, "will be incredible. Today, the availability of very high-speed networks makes it possible to develop applications never before thought possible, enabling continuous interactions between the physical and digital worlds. In a short time, we will be living in a blend of automation, artificial intelligence, digital interfaces and connected objects, but it will take an enormous amount of work to make this possible. This is where we intend to position ourselves as a niche player with very high technological capabilities."
