Your trusted research & consulting partner in a world of digital transformation & change


Digital transformation through technologies like streaming analytics, the Internet of things (IoT), Blockchain, and augmented reality is improving the way we work and live by creating completely new products and experiences.  These digital changes also have a big impact on how organizations envision, make, move, sell and support their products. Ideology is your trusted partner to help you navigate high-impact change.

How Ideology can help your business:


Get Involved in one of our Technology Research Projects

Ideology conducts research in order to provide insights across digital transformation topics that are not receiving sufficient emphasis by analysts or academic researchers to satisfy business demand. Ideology explores practical implementations, architectures, and questions directly related to decision making by product marketing, management, and executive leadership.

We use market demand to determine the priority of a research topic. Topics currently under consideration are listed below. You can cast your vote for a topic by completing the contact form on our website and indicating your interest in one or more topics.

Current Research Topics:

  • Practical Application of Blockchain Technologies
  • Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Protocols in a Human Social Environment
  • Internet of Things (IoT) Case-Based Reference Architectures
  • Developing Effective Ecosystems
  • The Internet of Things (IoT) in Healthcare
  • Longitudinal Study of IoT

Preparing your Company for Digital Transformation

Consulting for digital transformation requires specific skills not typical of technology consultants or contractors. We use these skills to develop a vision of the future by exploring social, environmental, technical, and fiscal questions such as:

  • What will your ‘customer of the future’ look like?
  • How could competitors disrupt your industry?
  • What technologies will your customers be using to be productive, social, or entertained?
  • How will those technologies affect their expectations of your product?

From there, we must define what changes will need to happen within the organization to prepare for digital change. Do you need to create a new product or service? What team or skillset is needed to deliver the product or service? What company culture is needed to bring about this change?

Ideology uses design thinking as a creative process to bring new product ideas to an organization by developing quick prototypes and early failures. The main objective is to bring a new and steady mindset across the organization for product design, breaking down silos and working as one team.

Product Developement 

Bringing your Digital & Physical Products to Market

White Glove Service

More important than what we do is how we do it. Generating ideas, creating potential, actively nurturing opportunities, developing insight, and taking part in something bigger requires the right environment. We call this: white glove service. Respect, communication, openness, consistency, empathy, and commitment are a few of the words we use to describe how we treat ourselves, our customers and anyone with whom we interact. Expect white glove service from Ideology. 

Let's build a connected world together.
