Innovation Labs

Let Stratascale fuel your digital transformation with expert insights and research

Complex technology stacks, sprawling portfolios of legacy applications, proactive technology scouting, and lack of time and resources. For large enterprises, these factors can present a massive challenge to digital transformation, and make it seem almost unattainable.

Stratascale Innovation Labs gives you on-demand access to the kinds of research, technical advisory and real-world wisdom that most CIOs can only dream of. It exists to help you identify and adopt the right technology investments more quickly, with lower costs and risks. We have the ability to become an easily accessible innovation arm of your organization, delivering immediate tangible business & technology insights.

Innovation Labs features three tightly integrated teams that combine their forces and individual strengths to guide you through the full lifecycle of major technology initiatives. You will gain insights, typically associated with analyst firms, combined with the practical guidance on technology implementation, typically associated with a systems integrator, under one roof.

The Innovation Labs Approach

The industry experts at Innovation Labs work with you to bring your digital strategy and desired future transformation state to life through Stratascale’s and SHI’s solutions and service offerings in 3 simple, yet effective steps:

We align your business objectives and desired outcomes to technology use cases.

The Research & Insights team is our industry insights intake mechanism, examining trends and technologies based on business value and relevant developments in the marketplace. Innovation Labs develops and publishes its own research findings while also drawing on the expertise of industry-leading research firms and tapping into our venture capital ecosystem and an extensive set of long-standing clients across the private and public sectors. Sifting through the noise, our research analysts provide actionable insights and engage with you to help answer the question “What technologies should I be looking at to support my business goals?”

Research and Advisory offerings:

  • Insights Articles – a self-service repository specifically for you to investigate a variety of research artifacts.
  • Horizon Report – a semi-monthly update on the industry’s most important trends, solutions, products, and offerings.
  • Research Request – customized research to simplify and accelerate the process of scouting emerging trends, companies, and technologies.
  • Horizon Briefing – a customized organization-centric update and dialogue between key decision makers and Stratascale’s subject matter experts (SMEs).

Research

We identify potential target companies/technologies based on your business objectives.

The Technical Advisory team works to ensure we are looking at technology solutions through the lens of practicality. Technical advisors combine business acumen with technical expertise to serve as trusted advisors for Stratascale clients. We investigate whether the solutions identified in our research can deliver on the capabilities your business requires. If a solution is found unsuitable, the Stratascale team can put it on the radar and track the maturity with you to determine its future feasibility.

Technical Advisory

We coordinate and sponsor sessions where you can hear directly from the companies you are most interested in analyzing for a potential Proof of Concept (PoC)/Pilot.

The CIC was designed to be a safe, proving ground for you to try out multiple options for technology solutions and see them come to life as opposed to just talking about them. We empower you to accelerate the adoption of emerging technologies by executing physical demos, Proof of Concept (PoCs)/Proof of Value (PoVs), product comparisons, training, and enablement. The CIC is designed to allow you to experience integrated and fully functioning reference architectures that address your business needs and facilitate strategic transformation.
