Smart Building: Energy efficiency application

If the development of Smart Home is still awaited, the concept of Smart Buildings seems to attract the ecosystem aiming to replace the traditional building management system. Smart Building players work together to fight the lack of standardisation. Regulatory bodies try to encourage the adoption of Smart Building. And real estate developers are increasingly taking a key role in the adoption of the technology, attracted by the potential in terms of energy efficiency in the aim to increase the  value of properties.

Harnessing the economic benefits of Artificial Intelligence

The industry is unanimous: AI will change the world and be ubiquitous in tomorrow’s economy. AI major gains are likely to focus on productivity, efficiency, automation  and costs, enabling consumers and businesses to capitalise on the digital economy. However, companies that fail to recognise the advent of AI and respond to them by disrupting themselves, innovating and re-engineering their business models will, at best, lose their competitive advantage, and at worst, disappear.

Adoption of novel technologies across the automative value chain

Initially requiring a high level of manual labour, the automotive industry increasingly introduces robots into its production cycle and is currently boosting its integration of highly innovative smart technologies to further optimise its design and production process.

Mobile and mobility: new opportunities to improve customer engagement

Mobile technology and mobility drive new ways of working, improving productivity and sales performance. The technologies also give companies the opportunity to improve their customer relationship by increasing their interactions.

Bring Your Own Device: a major security concern

More and more businesses are introducing Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programmes believing that they will increase productivity while reducing costs. Simultaneously mobile malware reveals to be one of the ten most common attack types making the corporate network vulnerable, and therefore requiring a stronger IT security system.
