We seek to leverage the cross-cutting power of computing broadly, increasing efficiency and intelligence in activities which were traditionally physical. Using computers, process control, automation, sensors, data analytics and other technologies and processes, isolated efficiency improvements have been realized in areas including infrastructure, manufacturing, food services, logistics, energy, transportation and entertainment. We aim to bring more intelligence to our processes, systems and decisions, creating a wholly connected enterprise in which newly discovered efficiencies converge.
