Broadband and ultra-high-speed networks serve as infrastructure layers for Pan-European deployment.

 
DatacentersWith the clear transition into the dominance by hyper scale & global cloud players over the past decade, the classical data center development approach supported by financial incentives served out.

Engineering new kinds of ideas,  partnerships, and collaborations are key to success in the next decade. Sustainability, AI and climate-conscious strategies are at the center. Post-Covid, more focus will be on the edge. Integration with partners through new models comes with it.  Old focuses like latency and cost containment are not abolished.
Building powerful partnershipsBuilding out your government agency or commercial entity in Europe may require building partnerships that expand your ecosystem.

If such a partnership (creative, product, strategically) is commercially sound,  the 1+1=3 result is achievable.

It starts with knowing your position and the ability to listen to what the other side wants. Building sincere empathy and communicating clearly are key in this. With Direct Engineering, we showed a sincere interest in the other Party, which helped us to close many deals throughout the years. 
Maximize the value of dataData exchange between companies or entities is an essential feature of
digitization and the data economy. Europe is pushing hard to foster data sharing among businesses, and between businesses and governments. We can help you create the next generation of data infrastructure: an open, transparent, and secure digital ecosystem, where data and services can be made available, collated and shared in an environment of trust. 
Data SpacesWhere selling or sharing data may seem straightforward to set up, there are many points of attention to manage. Creating data-sharing environments opens doors to new business models. Data governance should ensure a climate of trust while respecting the legal framework and within a technological framework for facilitating the transfer of data. There's work to do on building European data spaces to pool data in areas such as health, agriculture, public data and manufacturing.
Event managementEvents (webinars, seminars, workshops) are a means of recapping previous successes and acting as a springboard for the next ones.  Because every occasion is different, we tailor every event around your specific needs. We work with policymakers, stakeholders, and clients to ensure engaging topics and themes. We connect the dots, bringing the right people together.
