Energy & utilities
The energy and utilities industry is charged with delivering greater innovation at higher quality and lower cost. Projects are becoming more complex with the requirements of embedded software and electronics content. Developers are increasingly taking on lifecycle management rather than mere development and connection. The industry is moving from traditional procurement models to operating in partner ecosystems to achieve seamlessness between development, production, maintenance, grid and storage.
