Welcome to ICS' December Newsletter
With only a few weeks to go in this challenging year, I wanted to share a few highlights of ICS’ 2020 and offer a glimpse of what we have planned for 2021. Working primarily remotely since March, the ICS team successfully expanded our medical and regulatory practice areas, added platform, Yocto and Python sub-specialties, and broadened our UX focus to include gamification and human factors services — all to better serve our customers.
Looking ahead we’re seeing larger, more complex projects, as well as a growing need to prioritize cybersecurity while blending smart devices into the world around us. For 2021, we aim to build on both our achievements and vision. We will continue to excel in Qt/QML/C++ and OpenGL development while also establishing a strong presence in key areas such as MCUs and device cybersecurity.
And, of course, we’ll continue to create engaging content to help you keep your own skills up to date. For instance, in this issue you’ll find details on a spectrum of events, including DeviceTalks Tuesday, in which we explore usability challenges and regulatory issues in cutting-edge medical devices, and the State of Medical Device Virtual Summit, where we’re speaking on device cybersecurity. We’re also presenting a live webinar on Dockers and Kubernetes, and sponsoring Qt Goes Virt Event Series, a deep dive into desktop development. Speaking of Qt, don’t miss our blog on the forthcoming Qt 6.
Wishing you and yours a safe and happy holiday season!
Peter Winston, CEO
