The fundamental elements of the design process include establishing objectives and criteria, synthesis, analysis, construction, testing and evaluation. Thus, the prime purpose of engineering design is to apply scientific knowledge to develop the perfect balance of technical specifications and quality standards and eliminate or minimize possible technical problems. Modern engineering companies and allied industries innovate by implementing new technologies that offer them solutions that can facilitate their process to some extent.
There arises the need for professional engineering services consulting organizations to identify the company’s needs and customize or enhance the engineering design deliverables. These companies support saving a lot of cost, time, and effort and complement improving their efficiency.

Engineering product design is reaching new levels of competence and excellence using Artificial Intelligence. The majority of businesses have already invested in AI technologies in good capacity. In the engineering sector, AI is one of the fastest-growing technologies. This impact can create massive opportunities for engineering talent. Engineering design solution providers can take advantage of it. However, the skillset of this talent at par with client and technology demands must be fulfilled. Those who retain such specialist engineers can definitely shine in future.
Digital transformation is happening globally and very rapidly. To adopt this change, we focus on Innovation in every aspect of our business. Along with Innovation, a collaborative and sustainable business model will be designed with cloud, data, automation and security technology leaders.
Considering the current industry scenario, what challenges do you face, and how do you drive Otimizt to overcome them?
Talent sourcing and retention is today’s major global challenge for most service provider companies. Post-COVID has been one of the major challenges troubling services companies today, forcing organizations to require hybrid and remote teams.
Due to emerging technologies and market trends, there are significant changes in traditional engagement models to demand greater value and tighter service integration. Currently, OTPL is facing many challenges due to rising competition. On the bright side, increasing competition creates opportunities for us to think, reinforce and fine-tune business models for the long run.
