Arcadis has launched a new global digital business, Arcadis Gen, to provide data-driven products and solutions across the natural and built environment.
Operating as a separate legal entity, Arcadis Gen has 200 employees based across the globe and will be led by Chief Executive, Rachel White.
Arcadis Gen brings together recent acquisitions SEAMS and EAMS Group with software development specialists from the Arcadis business.
The new entity is being created to further accelerate Arcadis’ industry-leading digital transformation. While Arcadis continues to progress its innovation and digital strategy across its core operations, Arcadis Gen will focus on the development of various scalable digital propositions.
Arcadis Gen’s current solutions are designed to improve performance and optimise decision-making for its customers, helping maximize the value of their data. Deep asset knowledge combined with advanced analytics capabilities helps Arcadis Gen customers improve reliability, performance, efficiency and safety across their operations.
Solutions offered include Enterprise Asset Management, Asset Investment Planning and Asset Performance Management – which can be used from the very earliest stages of strategic planning through to operational delivery.
The new digital business will set Arcadis apart from the competition by creating an environment for next-generation thinking – where a culture of agility and innovation inspires development of world-class software and customer experiences.
Arcadis Gen Chief Executive, Rachel White, said, “we’re doing something the industry hasn’t seen before, we’re launching a products and technology organization; bringing together some of Arcadis’s brightest digital minds in an environment for thinking differently.
“At Arcadis Gen, our agile teams will be empowered to bring next generation insights to customers, to explore bold new business models, and to innovate digital solutions quickly and seamlessly.”
Arcadis Chief Executive, Peter Oosterveer, said, “Arcadis Gen is a vital step in Arcadis’ digital transformation. Together, we will positively disrupt the industry and help our clients harness the power of data to transform their businesses and improve the quality of life for their customers.”
