The Future

Healthcare Innovation

SCC launches it’s first Healthcare Innovation Hub with South Warwickshire Foundation Trust & Coventry University.

This exciting project is the first of its kind for SCC, an Industry Technology Integrator working with Academia and an Operational Hospital Trust to identify opportunities to deliver better healthcare or operational efficiencies by applying cutting edge technology such as IoT, Robotics, Big Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence.


The first 5G services were launched in multiple cities across the UK in 2019, introducing faster download speeds and better responsiveness than current 4G services. The new technology is exciting not only because of the faster speeds for consumers and business users, but also because it enables a broad set of unique capabilities and use cases that will benefit a variety of industrial sectors. 

5G will not only revolutionise the consumer mobile market, it will enable ubiquitous connectivity for many business applications from across the UK Industry spectrum and therefore will challenge current networking technologies, capabilities and services.

For SCC, 5G will help to create a structured framework to unleash the potential of the Internet of Things, Smart Buildings, Smart Campuses & Smart Spaces as well as the future connected car and vehicle to Infrastructure communications.

Tomorrow’s World – Birmingham, a showcase for the future

Birmingham is undergoing a once-in-a-100-year renaissance based on the regeneration of city centre brownfield sites combined with the development of technology centres involving artificial intelligence (AI).

SCC is working with Birmingham City University and West Midlands Combined Authority to create an applied showcase for the future digital workplace, which will enable industry to apply cutting edge technology such as AI, IoT, Robotics and Big Data Analytics to unlock productivity for the region, for industry sectors such as Manufacturing, Education, Logistics, Workspace, Blue Light, Logistics & Healthcare.
