Organizations participate in iNEMI for several reasons. Perhaps the most compelling is to leverage their resources anywhere from 8X to 20x (depending on number of participants) on key projects and focus areas and to reduce their risk by bringing together some of the best technology experts in the industry.
Through the combined power of iNEMI's global membership, we offer the opportunity to efficiently drive technology development and deployment across the global supply chain. Our proven methodology — which starts with roadmapping, followed by gap and need analysis — ensures that deployed solutions are timely and optimum for the common good of the industry. No single company or segment of the supply chain dictates the direction or the results.
By collaborating with other companies to address common industry problems, your company can reduce the resources required (both staffing and financial) for resolving an issue. No individual company has to pay for the entire effort and, at the same time, each company benefits from the capabilities and expertise of other participants.
Similarly, focusing the efforts of several companies on a single problem helps accelerate resolution and ensures technology readiness when your business requires it. It also helps reduce the risk of technology introduction by addressing reliability issues and building a base of qualified suppliers.
Companies also participate in iNEMI to:
Collaborate with their key customers (at multiple levels) and key suppliers.
Influence and help create industry-standard solutions that lead to competitive products.
Understand the direction of industry and the competitive landscape.
Understand and exploit new business opportunities.
Help influence innovation and research funding.
