Landscape review

A landscape review typically includes:

  • Analysis: business and technical needs, including any specific knowledge you’ve asked us to capture, and what the state-of-the-art looks like.
  • Risk and reward: technical challenges, competitor technology, and potential opportunities.
  • Solutions: relevant technologies you could employ to address your challenge, including relevant commercial off-the-shelf products to suit your needs.
  • Partners: pointers to relevant expertise in the university or college network, introductions to stakeholders or potential business partners.
  • Taking it further: our conclusions and recommendations.
