Keeping pace with a changing world
We live in an always-on world. Today, it’s not just people who are permanently connected – an ever-increasing number of devices are in constant contact too, collecting information and measuring faster than any human could.
This is the ‘internet of things’. It’s changing the way the world operates. And to succeed people need not just networks and computers, but engineered, enabling technologies such as sensors, instruments and connectivity.
Speed is also critical. Businesses building new applications need rapid access to technology building blocks. Products now go through more rapid iterations than ever before. This is driving a demand for quicker product development cycles. Customers’ product development cycles that previously took years, now take just months or even weeks.
We address both these needs – and what they have in common is speed, customer focus and precision engineering. So we call the result fast-moving engineered products.
The key to success is anticipating emerging needs and developing products to address them – to the right quality in the right timescale. We can do this because we’ve created a unique Innovation Resource Planning™ methodology that combines the best thinking from across our brands within our Cambridge Technology Centre.
Ultimately, this approach means we can meet the new and emerging needs of our customers faster.
