Megatrends that Affect Our Business

A megatrend that has a huge effect on our operations is digitalization, whose different manifestations create both business threats and business opportunities.

Rapid Technological Development as an Enabler of Digitalization

The emergence of embedded software, the management of complex systems and the rapid development of technology create opportunities for us to provide added value to our customers. To maintain our competitive edge, we need to keep intensifying our own technological development.

The Internet of Things (IoT)

The growing importance of IoT requires the integration of operating processes and secure IoT solutions to achieve efficiency advantages. The tools and approaches we use in developing our own operations include robot process automation, testing automation and data visualization. For our customers, we develop challenging IoT solutions that require a high level of information security.

Digitalization and the Ageing Population

The ageing of the population and population growth make the digitalization of health care crucial for maintaining the productivity and coverage of services. Remote monitoring, wireless solutions, new home-based care methods as well as faster and more efficient health data analysis are among the technological solutions we have developed for our customers.

Information Security

The progress of digitalization and technologies brings with it an increase in information security threats. This has made cyber security one of the most significant threats associated with digitalization. Stricter information security and regulatory requirements are reflected in our operations as well as those of our customers. The requirements are also expanding to cover new sectors and applications and the importance of information security certification is growing. We recognize these rapidly increasing sector-specific requirements and our product development efforts keep us on the leading edge of our industry in responding to them.
