HMD Global, the company behind a vibrant new Nokia brand, are shaking up the mobile communication market

If you are interested in what your next mobile phone might look like, and who isn’t, you might have caught a glimpse of some of the new Nokia phones.  Behind the resurgence of the brand that dominated the mobile phone market, not that many years ago, is an excellent example of Disruptive Technology in practice.  Peter Hawkins Technical Manager at HMD Global has kindly agreed to present at this year’s UK Intelligent Engineering Forum (UKIEF) in April.  He’ll share how HMD Global addressed some the challenges and opportunities presented in redefining the phone in your pocket whilst reigniting a well-deserved brand favourite. Its disruptive technology exploited the latest Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE platform and cloud technologies together with innovative work process and global skills resource, and is an excellent example of Intelligent Engineering that’s disruptive and not just a little bit edgy.
