High Technology is a knowledge-intensive industry challenged by high costs, long development cycles, and a highly competitive, specialized marketplace where the right data and superior knowledge management are the keys to enduring competitive advantage.
From early conceptualization, to design, to production, to after-market support as well as operations, data and the engineers’ knowledge informs every decision on the product lifecycle. The challenge is not in collecting the data but in identifying the right information, interpreting it, and using it effectively.
The ability to distill an ocean of data and deliver the insights to the right decision-makers and engineers at the right time is a key competitive advantage.
