SVV is an organization that has developed a complete end-to-end engineering and manufacturing platform, specializing in B2B complex medical, agriculture, and AI integrated IoT devices. Their systems are perfect for corporates to pilot-test new products and enter the Chinese market. In addition, because of SVV’s unique flexible structure, their team can develop almost 73% faster than their Western counter-parts, by harnessing the local ecosystem and simplifying the management process.
SVV has developed a complete end-to-end engineering and manufacturing platform, specializing in B2B complex medical, agriculture, and AI integrated IoT devices, with the added value that their manufacturing capabilities can also sustain small-batch production, making it perfect for corporates to pilot-test new products, and enter the Chinese market. In addition, because of SVV’s unique flexible structure, their team can develop almost 73% faster than their Western counter-parts, by harnessing the local ecosystem and simplifying the management process.
Innovation is adapting faster and faster with no signs of slowing down. In this fast-paced environment, innovation is in need of better platforms to support its growth. Corporations today are facing extensive challenges in getting new innovative ideas to market. According to Harvard Business School professor Clayton Christensen, there are over 30,000 new products introduced every year, and 95 percent fail, resulting in huge amounts of time wasted on failed concepts. However, corporations are now looking toward new ways to greatly reduce their lead time as well as expanding their horizons beyond their current business models.
Capgemini is known for its extensive knowledge in back-end IT and cloud services, and in parallel SVV has extensive knowledge in hardware development and manufacturing, forming the perfect intersection between software and hardware. Currently, Capgemini’s fully integrated ecosystem in IT services has always been restricted to just software-oriented development, until recently after acquiring the firm Altran, however, creating fast turnarounds on products is at the heart of innovation, which SVV can provide. Capgemini’s Applied Innovation Exchange (AIE) program was formed to assist corporations in the aforementioned, helping them find new markets and products to fit those markets, through a simple four-step process they’ve labelled “Discover, Device, Deploy and Sustain”.
Through collaboration between SVV and Capgemini, a new type of platform exists and has proven to overcome many challenges corporates have been facing. This new platform is situated in the canter of the hardware hub of the world, and branded the Silicon Valley of the East; Shenzhen. The Greater Bay Area has attracted 100’s of fortune 500 companies looking to utilize the local ecosystem to greatly accelerate their innovation activities. New products and devices can be built and deployed in months, not years, due to the GBA’s infrastructure and sheer talent pool.
By opening the doors to this new platform, Capgemini’s clients can easily benefit more through having complete control over the development process of both the hardware and software, along with the added advantage of using this platform as a pilot-testing powerhouse to enter new markets. On the other hand, both Capgemini & SVV are fully embedded in the GBA’s ecosystem, meaning, through working with the Shenzhen AIE, corporates will have the full power of the unique region’s strengths.
If corporations truly are trying to outpace their competitors, then platforms such as SVV’s and Capgemini’s AIE services are the key to utilizing ecosystems like the GBA, and unlocking the full potential which accelerates corporations into new markets.
