Sogeti operates in a decentralized and entrepreneurial way, while at the same time joining forces in an informal international network. In addition to its expertise in High Tech-Engineering and IT services, Sogeti is also the founder of ViNT (The Institute for the Analysis of New Technology), which looks at the implications and impact of emerging technologies in business and in our day-to-day life. Since its creation in 1994, ViNT has published a large number of books, translated into many languages and organized numerous events.
It is an arduous undertaking to attempt to keep up on all developments in the IT field. The state-of-the-art IT opportunities are often very far from the workings of the core business. Sources that provide a deeper understanding, a pragmatic approach, and potential uses for these developments are few and far between. VINT provides a meaningful interpretation of the connection between business processes and new developments in IT.
A balance is struck between factual description and intended utilization in every report drawn up by VINT for the investigations it carries out. VINT uses this approach to inspire organizations to consider and use new technology.
