Why is Innovation a Serious Strategy for Somnetics?
Innovation at Somnetics
Leaders are nothing but time-travellers into the future. We strive to bring tomorrow's solution today.
In a world of ‘adapt or die’, we at Somnetics truly stand out from the pack as clear leaders in the industry for we embrace innovation.
We rely on creative thinking and a solid understanding to go about bringing that innovation that empowers our business to grow and stay relevant in these changing times. Innovation plays a critical role in our offerings, growth and success. Just to give a perspective, 12% of our revenue goes to our labs and innovation-oriented activities.Almost 90% of the company’s assets are intellectual.
Innovation is inculcated within every member of the organization and the development and implementation of new ideas are encouraged.
Forums for sharing and discussion of ideas that propel the vision of the organization are instated and regularly monitored.
Somnetics Centre of Innovation
Somnetics Center for Innovation (SCoI) was established in 2008 to research intelligent systems, image and cognitive processing. So far, the centre has several projects at the national and international level.
The centre has also enabled Somnetics to become a significant contributor in terms of “Make in India” initiative and has made Somnetics an Intellectual Property (IP) rich organization.
In 2016, Somnetics has made the distinction by making it to the final jury level of CII (Confederation of Indian Industries) Industrial Innovation Award Program and secured ‘Gold’ rating in Innovation Culture, Innovation Management and Innovation Input/Output assessment.
SCoI had already delivered a unique Rapid Application Development (RAD) framework with code-less, cross-platform capability. It can engage humans, machines, digital content, business rule/logic and process all of it together.
It has unlimited application areas as it can replace conventional ERP/ CRM/ DMS with a much more capable and smart system. Other application areas are pollution control, smart cities, smart agriculture, energy system optimization, defence systems, knowledge management, cognitive recognition and big data analytic.
The system is presently employed with some of India's largest organizations with success.
“OpenLabs” was established in the year 2010. The main focus, in general, is to work on new trends in Information Technology and also to support SCoI in the applications of intelligent technologies, Internet of Things (IoT), Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), M2M in long term research.
OpenLabs is also playing as the test-bed for this proof of concept engineering research in the Sensor-IoT platform, emotion technology, advanced image processing, Robot-IoT, Drone-IoT, Environment-IoT Interface, intelligent electro-mechanical systems and many such areas.
