iDelft participated in the NITECT 2017 conference in Ottawa. The NATO Communication and Information (NCI) Agency awarded iDelft BV with the Defence Innovation Challenge prize. With 9 other international companies, iDelft demonstrated new technology at the 2017 NCI Agency Conference / AFCEA TechNet International (NITEC17), 'Sharpening NATO's Technological Edge: Adaptive Partnerships and the Innovative Power of Alliance Industry'. A total of 48 companies submitted proposals to NATO; 10 spearhead technologies had been formulated by NATO upfront.
iDelft created a software solution for procurement processes based on the Drupal platform. Combining this software with so-called Container technology (Docker) is offering maximum scalability and flexibility. With this solution, NATO can optimize their procurement processes on various platforms and geographic locations.
The other winning companies were from Norway, Germany, UK and the USA, focussing on Cyber Security, Secure Voice, Service Management Automation, Long Range Communication and Infrastructure.
NATO will spent more than 3 billion Euro's in the coming years on new projects and the NITEC 2017 conference paid attention to those upcoming projects that will need to incorporate new technologies.
