    Multiple parallel technologies are increasingly reinforcing and accelerating one another. Cloud infrastructure, mobile and edge computing, machine learning and IoT technologies are combining to enable previously unimagined capabilities for both the B2C and B2B worlds. “Smart Systems” is Harbor Research’s term to describe this phenomenon—a new generation of computing and digital architecture that is very different from classical information, computing, and telecom systems.

    THE BENEFITS OF WORKING WITH US


    YEARS OF EXPERIENCE

    With over thirty years of experience, we understand the core technologies, markets and business characteristics, as well as the management and organizational challenges, that companies face when developing and adopting new digital systems and growth ventures.

    UNIQUE POV

    We were the first firm to focus on the IoT, the convergence of pervasive computing with the Internet. We prefer the term “smart systems” because it captures the profound enormity of this phenomenon. It’s something much greater than just machine connectivity.

    PARTNERSHIPS

    Building new ventures requires novel modes of development and participants. Our community brings together diverse expertise, including design, technology, human sciences, anthropology and more to help our clients push the boundaries of collaboration.

    VALUE

    Harbor’s consulting work is designed to minimize the scale, complexity and cost of projects and—far more importantly—to reduce the time to implement meaningful actions and drive execution.
