The Services Innovation Foundry provides independent sandpit services that allow both research and industry to test and validate new ideas and products without compromising existing internal systems or supplier relationships. By running applications via the Sandpit Services we also enable organisations to adopt innovative technologies early and then take them into their own environment, without a large investment on an unproven new service platform.
At the Services Innovation Foundry we see this need being driven by increasingly conservative ICT departments that focus on platform technologies and quality of service to the masses rather than individual and innovative requirements. In such environments requests for exceptional services are increasingly difficult to satisfy. The Services Innovation Foundry can assist by providing flexible server and network infrastructure for testing and deployment of new and innovative services.
