Realizing your innovation goal requires the right talent and support – which may not be part of your core team. Martel Lab serves as your on-demand partner for specialized support. We have deep skills and experience in the innovation space, and can help you bridge gaps in your organization without needing to add headcount.

With seamless support from concept to execution, the Lab team gives you access to a wealth of specialized theoretical, technical and procedural knowledge. From understanding and forecasting the future of technology to building your prototype, our experts are here for you.

New technologies

The world is changing fast, and today’s innovative ideas are competing to become tomorrow’s standard technologies. We give you an overview of what is happening in your sector, what to expect, and where to invest.

 

Forecasting

Using our knowledge of the current state-of-the-art as well as what is in the innovation pipeline around the world, we build up an extensive forecast of what technological advancements are expected to emerge in the short- and medium term, so that you can best position your project for success.

 

Scouting

Once you have your project defined and a good understanding of the technological landscape surrounding it, we can begin scouting the existing solutions available to minimize the amount of new development needed to realize it.

Agile Management

Building your road to success

When it comes time to execute, having a detailed plan is invaluable. No project exists in a vacuum, and as a result must work in an environment of interdependencies – some of which are controllable, while others are not. The best way to navigate this environment is a detailed, effective roadmap coupled with an agile management process.

When we build your roadmap, we don’t just draw on your internal project resources and information. We use our full knowledge of the technological landscape and innovation ecosystem to help you plan your path and map out the potential areas of risk or opportunity.

Then, as the project calls for it, we use agile practices to redefine, redirect, or reprioritize the roadmap as needed. To keep the project on track and heading towards success, we can bring expert panels together to contribute, or raise the issue at industry forums to gain insight.

Prototyping

Building it right

Prototyping can be a long and complex process, especially when working with innovative technology. Pushing the boundaries of the state-of-the-art can be frustrating, as many different components must all interact correctly.

The Martel Lab will serve as your prototyping and testing partner to develop applications based on cutting edge solutions such as Docker and FIWARE. With our team of highly-skilled experts, we can help you in embracing latest technologies, and moving your monolithic application into the realm of native cloud applications.

Draw on our deep expertise in cloud architectures and cloud solutions (AWS, Docker, OpenStack, Kubernates, etc.) to refactor your application or to design your innovative services to be ready for the cloud.

Do you need multi-site architectures? High-availability of data and services? Self-healing applications? Talk to us. Do you need a FIWARE expert, able to help you in laying out a cloud-based and scalable IoT infrastructure? We are key contributors to the FIWARE initiative since day 1, and we are leading activities on production quality deployment of FIWARE services. You can also count on us to integrate your legacy infrastructure and services into FIWARE.
