Case Study: Medical Device Manufacturer Addresses Quality and Product Development Issues by Outsourcing IT

A leading medical device company that employs over 20,000 people decided to outsource the management of their engineering software.

This company stands at the forefront of innovation, leveraging IoT, DevOps, agile methodologies, and other advanced technologies in their product lifecycle.
