How Dean is building a better working world

"I advise manufacturers as they strive to capture value from increasingly complex digital features and hardware platforms in their products. Through this work, we are bringing together historically constrained embedded software development with the agility and speed of cloud native platforms to define new software defined digital products. My work helps clients deliver on their electrification strategies to reduce our overall carbon footprint. These same principles are enabling new industry ecosystems to form between power and utilities, automotive, and traditional water and HVAC manufacturers as we strive to optimize the use of energy globally."
