Verticals

We work with the development of innovative solutions in four major technological themes: IoT, 5G, Digital and Cloud/Edge Computing. And the new products and businesses developed are focused on various business verticals, such as:

 Agribusiness
 

Agribusiness

The Agro market is quite strong in Brazil, having great relevance in the Brazilian GDP, and it tends to grow more and more with the adoption of technologies and innovations. Brain seeks to act in this vertical so that the field also has intelligence, productions and crops are more profitable and the population also benefits from it all.

 Industry 4.0
 

Industry 4.0

The fourth industrial revolution will be very important for the country's growth and development, and may benefit many people with its technologies. Innovations in this vertical can improve all processes, from the office to the shop floor. The pillars and work fronts of Industry 4.0 open up a range of possibilities for the development of innovative solutions by Brain.

 Health
 

Health

Innovation in healthcare helps improve patient experiences, creates opportunities for professionals and adds value to service providers. The possibilities are immense in this market and Brain is present with its offices in the two main health centers in the country: São Paulo and Recife.

 Small Medium Business
 

Small Medium Business

Small and medium entrepreneurs often think that innovation is just part of the daily routine of large companies, but one of Brain's missions is to develop solutions for this audience, showing that innovation can also be part of their business.

 Smart Spaces
 

Smart Spaces

In addition to smart cities, which already bring many benefits to the population, it is also possible that many other environments become smart spaces, such as homes, factories, farms and hospitals, for example. Smart Spaces will soon gain scale and Brain is eyeing this market to help positively impact people's lives once and for all.
