Challenge: How to Build an Effective Innovation Process

Building an innovation process can be a daunting challenge for businesses, especially as the pace of technological change continues to accelerate. Some of the biggest hurdles include identifying promising areas for innovation, managing the flow of ideas and feedback, and aligning innovation efforts with overall business objectives. Additionally, many businesses struggle to strike the right balance between encouraging creativity and managing risk, as well as allocating the necessary resources to support innovation initiatives.

How MAPEGY Is Supporting MCAM and AIRBUS

MAPEGY has played a vital role in helping businesses navigate enterprise's challenges and build effective innovation processes. The value of MAPEGY is evident in the success stories of companies such as MCAM and Airbus, who have both used the platform to support their innovation strategies. Tim Vorage from MCAM and Dr. Christoph Stehncken from Airbus have spoken highly of the platform, emphasizing how it is helping them to streamline their innovation workflows and make better decisions about which initiatives to pursue (in particular, they are using the following SCOUT features:

  • Technology Landscape,
  • Trends Identification, and
  • Monitoring- Patents, Publications, and News.

We are proud to support such tech giants in their innovation efforts with our platform, and we look forward to continuing to help businesses of all sizes and industries drive meaningful innovation and growth.
