Providers of Technology Consulting and Engineering Services usually aim their consulting activities at their clients’ product development. These products are sold on to end customers, often as parts of a whole product.
Such services can include product design and development, the conception of embedded systems and matching software, systems integration, simulations, validation and verification, but also consulting services like research and innovation consulting or corporate strategy and process consulting, e.g. for innovation in production processes.
This definition clearly separates technology consulting and engineering services from IT consultancies and systems integrations companies, who focus their consulting activities on the processes and operational procedures of clients.
