With our patented AI as a Service platform, we help enterprise-level firms understand what’s happening, why it’s happening, and how to build for the future.

Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?
A: Thinaer has received the IRI PILOT Research Funding Scheme grant, which will be applied to its innovative research in overcoming the complex cultural changes of digital transformation.

We are conducting this research within a division of the National Association of Manufacturers, Innovation Research Interchange (IRI) and it will last through 2023. We will offer select IRI members and non-members the chance to participate in the research over the next year.
Findings and insights will be collected and analyzed into core themes which will then be published in IRI’s journal, Research Technology Management, and will also be delivered through IRI’s flagship learning program, TRACK.
