First, let’s focus on the two indicators Viktor did select for the RADAR:

1. The first indicator, the Distance Indicator - The number of Established Companies, acts as a compass that guides us through the ever-expanding technological landscape. The proximity of established companies to the center signifies their prevalence in their respective fields. The insights gleaned from this data emphasize the industry giants' proactive investment in digitalization, which serves as a driving force behind innovation. Collaborating with these established players not only presents opportunities for learning and evolution but also paves the way for a more impactful collective journey.

2. The second indicator, the Size Indicator: Startup Funding sheds light on the financial ecosystem that supports innovation. The size of the dot reflects the funding flowing into startups, offering a glimpse into the momentum behind transformative ideas. This growing investment in startups underscores the confidence in groundbreaking concepts. By nurturing an environment where startups can flourish, the tech landscape gains a fresh influx of perspectives and inventive solutions.

Exploring the Major Topic Fields
Now, let’s focus on the three major topic fields: 

SDGs: Sustainable Future Ahead

Aligning with the Sustainable Development Goals (#SDGs), MAPEGY's RADAR showcases how technology can serve as a catalyst for positive change.

The fusion of technology and conscious innovation has the power to initiate lasting transformations, benefiting both our planet and its diverse inhabitants.

Business and Finance Evolution

The realm of business and finance is undergoing a profound metamorphosis. Disruptions in fintech, groundbreaking blockchain innovations, and the integration of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) principles are ushering in an era of responsible entrepreneurship. Navigating the intricate interplay between challenges and opportunities will ultimately define the success stories of tomorrow's businesses. Adaptation to these trends is not just a strategy but a necessity for staying ahead in the ever-changing economic landscape.

Digitalization Trends

Digital transformation has thrust us into uncharted territories, propelling industries to new heights. From AI-powered insights to Internet of Things (IoT) marvels, MAPEGY's Tech RADAR spotlights the technologies that are reshaping sectors. Embracing automation, harnessing the potential of data analytics, and facilitating seamless connectivity are no longer optional; they are the bedrock of competitiveness in the digital age. As we navigate these transformative waters, it's imperative to recognize that numerous other useful indicators exist to decipher the technological landscape more comprehensively.
