Smart Product Engineering: Building Tomorrow’s Intelligent Digital Products

By Altair | Experion Technologies |

Experion has been building and launching successful digital and software products across multiple major industries for more than 15 years, and one thing is evident – products are only getting smarter. Whether they’re digital/software products or physical/hardware devices, most products are connected via built-in intelligence. Today, even basic products produce, consume, process, and leverage data, albeit with varying degrees of sophistication. Emerging technologies, along with certain convergent themes like automating trust, immersive interfaces, extended reality, working autonomy, digital reflection, and hyperconnected networks are not only changing how products are engineered, but are revolutionizing entire industries and redefining how businesses create value for their customers.  

And the need for intelligent applications and digital products will likely accelerate over the next decade and beyond. According to a study by Facts and Factors, the global Internet of Things (IoT) market size and market share revenue was valued at approximately $310 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to reach around $1.8 trillion by 2028, at a CAGR of 24.5% (2021-2028).  The industry 4.0 market alone was valued at $86.03 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach $267.01 billion by 2026 growing at a CAGR of 20.71% (2021 - 2026). The largest market is Europe and the fastest growing market is the Asia-Pacific region.

At Experion, we find this incredibly exciting for ourselves as product engineering specialists and for the future of our partnership with Altair, which specializes in simulation, high-performance computing (HPC) and artificial intelligence (AI) – which are all indispensable technologies that will drive digital product design and solve tomorrow’s most complex technological and business challenges.
