Our Tech Stack
We Speak These Languages
Chemical Manufacturing Software Development in Birmingham With SovTech
Birmingham is the largest city of the West Midlands, England, and one of England’s principal industrial and Chemical Manufacturing areas. Birmingham’s tech ecosystem has been on the rise for the past few years, with specific educational initiatives and funding opportunities pushing the community forward. TechBirmingham, an 18-year-old association, is on a mission to raise the profile of Birmingham and the West Midlands and establish the region as an international tech hub and destination. According to Tech Nation, an average of over 500 tech start-ups are founded annually in Birmingham, with the rise showing no sign of stopping. With reportedly more software developers in Birmingham now than in any other regional city, it is fast becoming the largest tech hub outside of London.
What is the Chemical Manufacturing Industry?
The chemical industry creates an immense variety of products which impinge on virtually every aspect of our lives. While many of the products from the industry, such as detergents, soaps and perfumes, are purchased directly by the consumer others are used as intermediates to make other products, For example, in Europe, 70% of chemicals manufactured are used to make products by other industries including other branches of the chemical industry itself. The industry uses a wide range of raw materials, from air and minerals to oil.
How Technology is Affecting the Chemical Manufacturing Industry?
There are three main ways in which digital will affect the chemical industry. The first is using digital-enabled approaches to improve companies’ business processes, which we call functional excellence. Second is the potential for digital to affect demand patterns in end markets, with implications for the chemical industry’s value chains. The third is where digital developments lead to changes in the business models through which chemical companies capture and create value for customers.
Technology Trends Shaping The Chemical Manufacturing Industry
The pandemic raised everyone’s awareness of the fundamental importance of technology. The unprecedented scale and speed of the crisis brought a colossal surge in technology investments. In fact, rarely can a surge in digital transformation be seen in gross domestic product data, but this past pandemic year was an exception.
While few organisations would have planned for something as momentous as COVID-19, digital leaders entered the crisis in much better shape than others. Most notably, they had better infrastructure in place to deal with the immediate need to pivot to remote work and remote operations.
The 2021 digital focus will be on modifying structures and processes—connecting across front, middle, and back offices—so that information flows easily between each. This helps ensure access to all appropriate information for decision-making, planning, and support. A connected enterprise will likely require greater adoption of emerging technologies such as robotic automation, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and natural language processing. These investments will pay back in gains in revenue and efficiency—and better service to the customer.
The chemical industry, a slow mover compared to many others, should leverage digital leading practises from industries that have successfully made the transition to a connected enterprise, such as media, telecom, and technology industries.
The chemical industry has been a leader on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors, but there is so much more to do. It’s time to double down on ESG strategies.
ESG is becoming more mainstream due to intensifying investor, regulatory, and consumer pressure holding companies accountable for ESG impacts. Some examples: surging demand for responsible investments has large fund managers exiting investments in non-climate-conscious companies; European Union sustainability-related regulations require ESG impacts on all products to be disclosed; consumers are publicly demanding that businesses move beyond token gestures and into hard action; and C-suite executives will increasingly be measured on, and rewarded for, progress against ESG targets.
A recent KPMG/Eversheds survey identified a significant increase in C-suite focus on climate change.
The chemical industry holds the key to unlocking climate strategies across the industrial manufacturing value chain. This will be accomplished through the supply of sustainably produced products into downstream industries. Other prominent ESG industry focus areas include decarbonization, renewable energy, CO2 reduction, and circular plastics.
Incorporating ESG builds competitive advantage. Strong ESG practises are becoming an essential prerequisite for employee recruitment, brand enhancement, and investor funding. In short, ESG creates a virtuous circle for all—employees, customers, and investors.
Although there has been some progress recently, participation of women and minorities in chemical leadership remains stubbornly low. Leadership has typically followed a very traditional model: most have a chemical engineering degree and comparable business experience and share similar backgrounds—these commonalities potentially leading to a lack of diversity of thought. In the current dynamic environment, greater diversity is needed to bring fresh perspectives and ideas to deliver greater agility in response to new challenges. Diversity boosts innovation, aids in talent acquisition and retention, and improves customer connections with an increasingly diverse consumer base.
Diversity needs to be reflected throughout the organisation. The chemical companies that will be the most successful in the coming years will be those that can win the war for diverse and digitally-savvy talent—and that is a war that will be fought across multiple industries.
COVID-19 didn’t stop deal activity. Even in a challenged market, there were multiple billion-dollar and multibillion-dollar deals. To name a few: Trinseo acquired Arkema’s PMMA business; BP sold its petrochemical business to INEOS; PPG acquired the global coatings manufacturer Ennis-Flint and has since announced its intention to acquire Tikkurila Oyj; and a consortium of Cinven and Bain Capital has announced its intention to acquire Lonza’s Specialty Ingredients business in a $4.7 billion deal.
In fact, right now it is the most active mergers and acquisitions (M&A) market ever seen in chemicals. There are sponsor-owned assets in process of sale, large-scale corporate carve-outs (e.g., Clariant pigments business and Eastman’s tire additives and adhesives resins business units), as well as smaller corporate carve-outs comprising product lines, and even single manufacturing plants.
There are a multitude of factors driving M&A activity, among them cheap and plentiful debt, burgeoning private equity interest in the industry, liquidity pressures on distressed companies due to the pandemic impact, and a desire by some corporates to divest underperforming or non core businesses.
There are promising possibilities on either side of the buy/sell equation. Portfolios should be strategically assessed to determine where to focus finite resources in order to meet business objectives. If there are assets in the market that would make a good fit, now might be a good time to reach out to the owner as they may be considering selling. Conversely, if a part of your business doesn’t align with your organisation’s strategy, start thinking of ways to maximise value in preparation for sale—to private equity investors, corporations, or both.
Historically, many of the biggest chemical companies have been diversified—typically as a result of past M&As, although over the past 10 years, there has been pressure to restructure portfolios to focus on fewer, core businesses—much of this exerted by activist investor pressure in the U.S. However, during the pandemic, those companies that were focused on the “wrong” segments of the market were those that suffered the worst during the crisis
Learning from the lessons of 2020, it’s a strategic imperative for all chemical companies to actively assess their portfolios and determine whether a change in direction is required. Diversification should no longer be a dirty word in the industry—as long as diversification doesn’t become an excuse for lack of focus.

Agile vs Waterfall Software Development
Waterfall is a Linear Sequential Lifecycle Model whereas The Agile Methodology is a continuous iteration of development and testing in the software development process. Agile allows changes in project development requirement whereas Waterfall has no scope of changing the requirements once the project development starts.
Web Apps vs Mobile Apps
The difference between these two types of applications is that web apps require an active internet connection in order to function, whereas mobile apps can be downloaded and can often function while offline.
