Type: Conference paper


Digital technologies have created a new social and economic paradigm, which has created new scenarios and responses, generating a new wave of changes that will have profound repercussions. We can highlight the latest models and forms of work by creating employment and new forms of management and processes. To study digital technologies of general utility and their link to the border and peripheral territories in greater depth, we have carried out a historical study and a comparison with these territories, finding that the three main criteria defined to carry out a correct and exhaustive classi-fication of utility technologies are the availability of constant improvement, the capacity to generate innovations and the disposition of omnipresence, which means that companies and organizations linked to border territories are those that mainly participate in finding advantages in the establishment of «tele-working», thus being able to have the opportunity to fix talent without worry-ing about the restrictions of location and those that also participate in finding the opportunity to optimize costs and production. This issue can also be applied to the relocationof the company or organization or even to specific processes.
