Bringing Reality to the Digital World

Bringing Reality to the Digital World

with David Lod

It’s not quite what Amazon did to shopping. It was how:

  1. They became customer-obsessed…
  2. …to make shopping frictionless. Just look at that one-click ordering!

VEERUM CEO David Lod has emphasized the same approach, becoming client-obsessed in his SaaS company’s bold attempts to provide frictionless digital twin solutions for the energy and industrial sectors, among others.

Prior to helming VEERUM’s visual intelligence revolution, David spent a decade at IBM then found himself co-owning a data center. It informed his tightly-held belief that, as we continue evolving in digital twin software, data is everything if we want supreme efficiency. Additionally, he and Matt explore reframing ROI, the industry’s most pressing challenges, and bringing industry into tech as opposed to tech into industry.
