Policy & Strategy

Techtonica engages with numerous technology policy fora and can assist clients in formulating policies underpinned by the principles or the protocols necessary to guide business decisions. Once a robust policy is in place, we can advise on a strategy and finally devise a detailed plan to achieve this strategy. In relation to regulatory strategy for product development, this would consist of a test-driven assessment of a product's development options, key considerations and likely regulatory outcome, from the earliest development stages through planned further modifications following authorisation or acceptance.

Research & Innovation

The information society owes its economic growth and progress to research and innovation. Technology and its ongoing development never stands still and even now classical computing and traditional methods of encryption are becoming obsolete. As hardware development advances, “blue sky” thinking is more critical than ever before. Blue-sky thinking is the activity of trying to find completely new ideas. However blue-sky thinking without more is insufficient: it must be translated into practical change.
