*** About United Technologies Corporation (UTC) ***
At its core, UTC is a global technology company that is intensely focused on serving customers across two major industries – aerospace and commercial buildings. To do that, UTC is constantly seeking new ways to add value to the customer experience and digital is a significant enabler to achieve that goal. Last year, UTC formed United Technologies Digital, a globally-connected community of experts that spans across all UTC businesses and is focused on accelerating the digitization of UTC and its respective industries. As part of this initiative, UTC launched the United Technologies Digital Accelerator in Brooklyn, NY. Through a design-led approach, the Digital Accelerator team applies its domain expertise to explore how data, analytics, and software can change the value that it creates for our customers and ultimately UTC as a whole.
