Vitaly Fridland, VP at Fujitsu Technology Solutions and CEO of Fujitsu Russia and CIS, talks about the changes that advances in information technology would create for governments, individuals and businesses. Fridland noted that it is impossible to select any individual group as most affected by the changes because of the paradigm, in which market participants consume what they need and pay with resources that are not necessarily monetary.
Friedland noted that multinational corporations look at global trends in doing business. At the same time, they use local ethics for interactions in the countries that they work in. He noted that he considers himself a technological optimist because any system is subject to some kind of laws, which prevents them from getting out of the control of man and ensures feedback that would engage it with the interests of society.
