Device Development Next Solution (DDx) | HCLTech

Device Development Next


Even as the market for embedded systems expands rapidly worldwide, organizations are struggling to develop new products/devices in such systems. 
Product development, is a protracted process involving design, development, and testing. 

The lack of sound technical knowledge, the inability to connect devices to the internet without impacting the bottom line, and consolidating devices in a connected eco-system poses additional impediments.However, in order to stay ahead of the curve, it’s imperative to launch products on time, with unwavering commitment to quality and service.

At HCLTech, we have a comprehensive plan in place, comprising reusable components, engineering accelerators (HW and SW), best practices, and relevant domain expertise.These elements drive substantial savings in engineering effort, reduce time-to-market, and minimize defect occurrences.We also action a robust security framework for embedded devices, video surveillance solutions, and HW platform accelerators.Our Device Development Next (DDx) is a bouquet of device-centric solutions enabling organizations to smoothen product development in embedded systems.

Our solution has impacted several organizations across industries:

  • An Indian control panel maker and system integrator witnessed 60% reduction in cost of development and 50% savings in time-to-market, for wireless device-to-IoT enablement.
  • A top medical device maker reduced development cost and efforts for rapid IoT implementation by 40%
  • A home automation company, previously grappling with a legacy solution, minimized implementation time by 50%
