Every day, we read about the advent of a new technology or advancements of existing technologies. Just 10 years ago, smartphones were almost unheard of, but today, nearly 2 billion people worldwide own one. The resulting app ecosystem has grown manifold and changed livelihoods. Smart technology is everywhere, and every business wants to take advantage of this trend to improve workflows and thereby improve efficiency.
When considering the smart ecosystem, name an emerging technology trend and it’s very likely a Hexagon brand is associated with it. Around the world, Hexagon is seen as a leading global provider of information technologies that drive quality and productivity improvements across geospatial and industrial enterprise applications.
Another positive aspect of Hexagon is its large network of companies that develop solutions that complement offerings across the entire Hexagon technologies portfolio. Through a well-developed strategy, this is enabling synergy and ensures that customers are able to produce bigger output than the sum of the original parts.
Cloud/client computing and drones and the internet of things within the consumer space are often termed as the next big things in technology. In engineering, we have SmartPlant Cloud, and in the geospatial industry, Aibotix is becoming one of the most sought after intelligent autonomous vehicles.
Intergraph SG&I has been supporting utilities and defence for years now. Solutions like Mobile Alert are aiding governments worldwide in smart governance. At the same time, food safety for the world populace can’t be ignored. One of Hexagon’s newest brands, Hexagon Agriculture, addresses this issue.
To support all the above, Hexagon leadership has embraced social media in a big way. The CEO and divisional presidents are active twitter users. This helps them keep their ears to the ground. In addition, Hexagon brands have their own social identities, which helps in understanding customer needs and spreading key messages.
Being at the forefront of innovation to make a positive impact on an ever-changing world – that’s shaping smart change.
