Lagolfa is born through Vicente Blas Lopez Plaza’s experience, internet & IT related know-how acquired in the past 12 years. I’ve been lucky to work on on-line projects ever since 1998, working for both Spanish & foreign companies in such fields as web creation, as well as catalogues, websites, applications, intranets, extranets, as well as my own development projects.
I’ve been working on the such fields for the past 7 years, of which, 5 as a freelance, 1 in a Microsoft certified consulting firm, and for the last year, in my own company. As a total I must have carried on over 200 online projects. Besides I do write a monthly paper on technology for an Economy magazine : Agenda de la empresa andaluza (Anadalusian Business Agenda) , with 40.000 copies print run.
When I started in this job, it was all about websites and they were created within the framework of either the academic world or private business, the networking citizen or the digital society were non-existing, the inhabitants of the cyber-world in Spain were very few indeed. Since the cyber-gap has been closing, and the mainstream population has progressively entered the digital society, whereas the professional projects have remained about the same : websites, b2b etc…
Presently, it is not only this society that is within the web, but it is the web, thanks to portable communication devices, the ever cheaper mobile connections, that walks together with the citizens. It is the contents that create value for both citizens & business’. It does not make any sense to think of Internet / web content only as a website, or an application. It does not matter how good you are as a website creator or application developer, what has become important is how you deal with the contents hosted by that particular company, person or institution. Content has become the main value for companies as well as for people.
Companies who are ready to un-lock the potential of their contents, launch them on-line, let the such contents evolve freely on the web, and manage the value they are creating, and outmostly : let the network have access to people & business’. The companies who are willing to understand this, are the ones that are really ready for the coming digital society. It is not anymore a matter of putting content on the web, it has become the matter of letting the web come into us, within our project. Lagolta’s main goal, within this project, is not to create good websites or good applications, but to manage appropiately the digital contents of our clients, as well as those of the people who interact with them. We provide the solutions for the network to enter into business, associations, people, in a easy way, and in a such way that we become another link within the network.
