Next Generation, often shortened to NextGen or Next-Gen, is a term used on many buzzword lists. Over recent years it has been widely used to describe a product or technology that has been developed to replace current products or technology – by being new, different, and to an extensive degree better.
To avoid NextGen just being a buzzword, there is a good rule to apply. Make sure to justify the NextGen claim by ensuring that there is a clear description of what the previous generation's technology was, what the new product’s technology is, and how the difference between them provides greater capabilities or cost reductions.
A NextGen business recognize technology as the differentiator and embrace technology to grow the company of tomorrow. To gain a competitive edge in a demanding market requires efficiency, agility, analysis and uncomplicated technological solutions – where cloud technology is paving the way for enterprises to grow their innovative ideas.
Cegal and NextGen
Cegal’s vision is to be a stellar NextGen tech company that enables a more sustainable future. What do we mean by NextGen tech company? It is about what is characterizing the most successfull technology companies - and for us, the following three things:
Cegal is the people and the culture. No warehouses, flow of goods or logistics – only hearts and minds. Hence, our focus on building an unstoppable culture is pivotal for our success and ability to build a stellar nextgen tech company for the energy industry.
We are passionate about recruiting, developing, and retaining the right competencies, skills and attitudes in the company. It is also about securing the right diversity in the company and the right mix of gender, age, background and experiences, as it is widely recognized that diverse companies both perform better financially and become more attractive in the fight for talent.
This is about understanding where the most attractive opportunities are for us in the market and to go after the right value pockets with the right offerings, based on where customers will invest, and bringing products and services to the market with crystal clear value propositions on how technology create business value.
We are professional and secure high-quality delivery and efficiency in everything we do. We have good quality systems to secure that we deliver projects on the right time, cost and quality - with world class service.
Next-generation products are expected to inspire and support a whole new line of derivative products.
One example is Cegal Blueback Avary, a new product of Cegal, that is built on Cegals NextGen software – Flows, which optimizes efficient use of hardware and enables a paradigm shift in speed and results in quality within the workflow. With Cegal Blueback Avary, you can focus more on the interpretation and evaluation of the data rather than handling and managing countless computational operations and parameterization across multiple applications. In other words, increased effectiveness, speed, and quality of seismic post-stack processing workflows.
