UK organisations need to thrive rather than survive in today’s global, ever evolving, and highly competitive business landscape.
To encourage and help facilitate that, Digital Catapult is a strategic partner to those companies looking to increase productivity, efficiency and scale.
Welcoming delegates of this year’s IoD Digital Summit 2017 will be Digital Catapult’s CEO, Dr Jeremy Silver, himself an author and entrepreneur specialising in digital media and big data. He has been an advisor to the founders of Shazam, and co-founded music playlist-sharer Uplister in San Francisco.
Through the medium of cutting-edge digital technology, Digital Catapult enables start-ups, scale-ups and larger established companies in the digital manufacturing and creative industries to become more efficient, develop new applications and services and unlock new markets and opportunities.
Digital Catapult makes innovation happen by removing barriers to growth faced by businesses. The company introduces businesses to new and trusted ways of working with personal data, applications of Blockchain and smart contracts and cybersecurity particularly for emergent threats. They help businesses connect to the Internet of Things (IoT) and associated enabling networking technologies such as Low-Powered Wide-Area networks (LPWAN) and 5G. The company demonstrates how artificial intelligence and particularly machine learning can help revolutionise manufacturing processes. And, last but not least, they have built, and continue to build, immersive labs. Facilities that will be used to demonstrate how augmented, virtual and mixed realities can reshape the go to market strategy for companies operating in both the creative and manufacturing industries.
By applying business and technology know-how to the new commercial opportunities unlocked through Digital Catapult’s programmes and collaborations, new markets and opportunities can be created for UK digital companies. This helps the UK economy to grow. And that, after all, is what Digital Catapult is in business for.
