SPIE CONTINUES A DECADES-LONG TRADITION OF INNOVATION IN ALL ITS SUBSIDIARIES. WHETHER IN HISTORIC PROFESSIONS SUCH AS PUBLIC LIGHTING, TECHNICAL BUILDING MANAGEMENT OR CORPORATE IT NETWORKS. SPIE BUILDS NEW SOLUTIONS BY INTEGRATING CURRENT TECHNOLOGICAL BUILDING BLOCKS SUCH AS IOT, MACHINE LEARNING OR ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE.
- Design of pilot projects (PoC or MVP)
- Consulting and support for the development of IoT solutions
- Customized integration of new technological bricks on existing solutions.
- Collaboration with start-ups
- Realization and participation in joint innovation projects (InnoSuisse, ...)
- Use of innovation and co-creation tools (Design Thinking, Lean Start-Up Canvas)
Design of pilot projects
In order to realise the value and relevance of the contribution of new technologies, the Business Development & Innovation department carries out PoCs (Proof of Concept) and MVPs (Minimal Viable Product) in collaboration with its partners and customers.
These reasonably sized projects reveal the value of an innovation and its suitability for the company's market. Their short duration enables agile decisions to be made and the allocation of resources to their future development.
Our teams were working with IoT products and solutions before it was even called that. We are passionate about new technologies and their integration in the form of new services.
We test and build new function bricks that we integrate or bundle according to projects.
Our expertise applies to the fields of intelligent building, intelligent city, energy or industry.
We are always on the lookout for new innovative products or new technologies. Every change or breakthrough is a breeding ground for new ideas and opportunities. The products we evaluate become building blocks for solutions that we then integrate into our projects later on.
This activity brings us closer to schools and start-ups which are valuable and essential partners in our innovation ecosystem.
Some examples of innovative solutions
The ICT portfolio is complemented with new solutions through services created using new technologies such as IoT, Machine Learning or Artificial Intelligence. We develop tailor-made solutions in collaboration with our clients and accompany them through co-creation workshops
Smart City & Infrastructure
We innovate in the field of the smart city through parking solutions among others. We are extending our portfolio in this area through services that take advantage of new technologies such as Machine Learning or the use of the Cloud.
We implement the IoT in the building in order to digitize it. Using sensors, we enable the infrastructure and building technology to transmit data and thus create new, tailor-made services.
