Why you cannot miss the 2021 New Horizons Series

As 2020 drew to a close, JP Morgan asked a pertinent question – Have consumer spending habits changed for good as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic? The investment bank found that while some products experienced meteoric demand, some suffered double digit declines. There was of course one clear winner. The internet. Overnight people flocked to shop, meet, study and work online. Businesses with a strong digital footprint thrived.

And now as economies emerge, slowly but surely from the pandemic, businesses are looking to strengthen their online footprint and accelerate on their digital journey because customer could be ready to splurge. A study from The Brookings Institution estimates that owing to lockdowns there could be a 10-20% spike in savings in U.S. and Western European households, and most customers are in a strong position to spend.

A race against time

To meet this exponential demand and to face the new the post-Covid economic reality, enterprises have dramatically changed their R&D priorities. They have undergone a significant transformational shift and are now racing to adopt new technologies and invest in digital solutions leveraging Cloud, Intelligent Automation, 5G, and IOT to fast-track their go to market strategy. As a result, ER&D service companies are seeing increased traction.

And ER&D is at the heart of the post-Covid recovery for many businesses. Why? Large engineering deals being signed amidst the pandemic is testimony to the increasing value being placed on outsourcing relationships. It is also testament to the importance of ER&D outsourcing. Yet challenges remain.

In this context, Capgemini Engineering, recognized as the leader of this market by multiple industry analysts (the leader of Everest top 50 Engineering services companies 2021 globally, and ‘Industry Leader’ by Zinnov Engineering and Research & Development (ER&D), and Internet of Things (IoT) Services) is mobilizing its unique network of experts to offer a compelling panorama of the new horizons of engineering.

For engineers from engineers

Gone are the days when critical engineering decisions were solely resting on the shoulders of CIOs and CTOs. Engineering is at the heart of today’s businesses, playing a critical role in every facet of technology. To help businesses discover the real solutions to the most demanding ER&D challenges, Capgemini Engineering is launching a unique series of webinars – the 2021 New Horizons Tour.

  • What would clean transportation actually mean?
  • What are the practical use cases for 5G?
  • How to work around the chip shortage – successfully?
  • How do you become a software company – and thrive?
  • Can anyone become cloud-native?
  • Will anyone really lead the promising biopharmaceuticals market?
  • Can you – or your customers – trust AI in engineering?
  • What makes an intelligent train?
  • Is smart manufacturing smarter with the cloud?
  • What’s the real future for drones?

So, if you want to learn how to leverage ER&D to enhance the future of digital transformation and experience or build a multi-hub strategy or perhaps how to navigate the current turbulent business conditions – no matter what role you play – the New Horizons Series is for you.  The tour will bring insights from across the industries and expertise domains on all those topics.
