The High Tech industry is one of the main drivers of our economy. It is the place where innovative solutions are developed for social challenges in the areas of energy, mobility and sustainable production. The demand for advanced production machines, measuring and control systems and equipment is therefore increasing at a high rate. The standards of today must become even more efficient, fast, powerful, small and accurate tomorrow. Developing of new machines or improving existing ones calls for significant investment. Moreover, the limits of what is physically and electronically possible have been reached in recent years.
So the challenge for ICT Group is to push the boundaries with increasingly clever software solutions. In this way we can compensate physical imperfections of machines in an affordable manner and raise performance to a higher level. This rapidly moves software from an enabler to the core of processes within the high-tech industry.
As early as the start of the eighties ICT was involved in the High Tech industry and it was during this period that we obtained our current clients in the high tech industry. The services we provide are broad: secondment services based on the use of our specialised and experienced professionals, to projects where we take full responsibility for the process from start to finish. Examples here are elements such as the quality of the product to be supplied, cost management, quality, lead time, etc. With the ultimate aim of achieving an optimum result for our clients.
We have a strong focus on the ‘Brainport’ region, with Eindhoven at the centre; this area has developed into an important high tech region due to the fact that the vast majority of high tech companies are located here.
Brainport stimulates unique forms of cooperation that form the basis for open innovation. We regard cooperation with other parties and our clients as the key to improving the processes.
Around 2013, ASML ran into a problem familiar to many fast-growing high tech companies. With its technology growing increasingly complex, its software engineers were fully focused on product development while spending less time on the process behind it all. ASML’s Stefan de Hoog and Ad van Dongen of ICT Group tried a new approach. Read more about this approach here.
Model Driven Engineering
Model Driven Engineering is a software development methodology that saves businesses a significant amount of time and money and enables them to streamline their operations. With all the parties working together within a single model, Model Driven Engineering improves coordination between the various stakeholders, resulting in a more robust software solution with fewer bugs. Model Driven Engineering is perfect for businesses with a need for complex and error-proof software, such as companies operating in the high tech industry. As one of the first software companies to specialize in this relatively new approach to software design, we at ICT Group look forward to assisting you by sharing our knowhow, expertise and experience.

High Tech Software Cluster
In 2014 we joined the High Tech Software Cluster – a collaborative venture with like-minded partners in the value chain and together we work towards accelerating innovation in software development. More information about the cluster High Tech Software Cluster
