How one software company designs technologies for all.
Honeywell is a global Fortune 100 software-industrial company which invents and manufactures technologies that support industries from aerospace, homes and buildings, manufacturing, supply chains, safety and security, smart energy and oil and gas. Honeywell has forged ahead of its peers by taking connectivity from ‘digital to digital’ to ‘digital to physical’. Their products blend physical products with software to support connected systems which improve homes, cars, factories, utilities and aircraft, in order to help workers and the world become smarter, safer, and more sustainable.
Honeywell provides aircraft propulsion, cockpit systems, satellite communications and turbochargers in the aerospace arena. Honeywell’s technology in homes and buildings help customers control comfort levels, security concerns and energy consumption. Their performance materials and technologies help reduce emission and lower global warming by enabling industrial customers to produce cleaner fuels, improve operational efficiency and increase output capacity. The company’s safety and productivity solutions are used to improve enterprise and workflow performance, enriching operational intelligence with data-driven insights.
Honeywell is the first large Western company to reach CMMI® Level 5 capability among all its software engineers. This very high standard qualifies Honeywell to compete effectively in the Internet of Things arena. The company’s growth over the next five years will be connected to software, and the development of their capabilities, facilities and talent. Although technology, and products are important, Honeywell places their people are at the centre of it all.
