Empowers Clients To Set Trends, Avoid Disruption

Monday, May 7, 2018

Artificial intelligence, machine learning, augmented reality. Technology is moving at the speed of light. Business leaders feel pressure to stay up on the latest developments impacting their industry, but their time is consumed by daily operations.

“Most companies are working so hard to stay in the black; they don’t have the capacity or full expertise to monitor and evaluate opportunities and threats arising from new technologies,” says Mind Over Machines Founder and CEO Tom Loveland. “But how to stay ahead of the competition in the face of potentially disruptive innovation keeps the C-suite up at night. That’s why we’ve created our Emerging Technologies Practice.”

The Emerging Technologies Practice (ETP) is designed to help organizations assess and prepare for new technologies that could change their industries. It provides ongoing monitoring of client industry trends and disruptors with the user-focused guidance Mind Over Machines is known for.

“We have been leading clients through digital transformation one step at a time for thirty years now. We are committed to keeping people at the center of everything we do,” explains Loveland. “Our Director of Emerging Technologies, Tim Kulp, comes from a humanities background. He’s the perfect choice to head ETP because he has a unique understanding of what people expect from technology and how they use it.”

Kulp is known throughout the Mid-Atlantic region as an emerging tech expert who has pioneered augmented reality for enterprise. He consistently strives to humanize technology by focusing on how people relate to the digital world around them.

“We know how hard it is to build a talented team well-versed in AI, AR, bots, computer vision and anything else that might come down the pike, so we’ve done it for you,” Kulp says. “We provide innovation teams for businesses that don’t have their own. ETP works closely with companies’ senior leadership to help organizations understand disruptive technologies that are driving new opportunities and challenges in their industries. We use proven practices to creatively apply emerging technologies for real business impact.”

Mind Over Machines’ Emerging Technologies Practice makes increased peace-of-mind accessible and affordable. By partnering with ETP, business leaders can rest assured they are investing in technology that matters, freeing them to focus on key company priorities and a good night’s sleep.
