Research & Development
According to the OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development), research and experimental development comprise creative work undertaken on a systematic basis to increase the stock of knowledge of man, culture, society, and how to devise new applications.
R & D covers three activities:
Fundamental research: is experimental or theoretical work undertaken primarily to acquire new knowledge of the underlying foundation of phenomena and observable facts without any particular application or use in view.
Applied research: is also original investigation undertaken in order to acquire new knowledge. It is, however, directed primarily towards a specific practical aim or objective.
Experimental development: is systematic work drawing on existing knowledge gained from research and/or practical experience, which is directed to producing new materials, products or devices, installing new processes, systems and services, or improving substantially those already produced or installed.
Therefore, ICT-Towers continues to develop its specificity and differentiate themselves from competitors by setting-up an entire structure for R&D that is responsible for conducting all necessary scientific research, proposing, and developing the most appropriate solutions.
The main objective of this structure is to conduct researches that proceed to experimental development in order to translate the strategic objectives into ICT projects, while ensuring the following aspects:
- The usefulness and the usability of the proposed solutions.
- Their adequacy regarding customer’s needs and constraints.
- Their security, trust and high availability.
These Research and Development activities can also contribute to a technological innovation, encourage any type of discovery and invention in the ICT field, and participate to the scientific and economic development of our country.
