At PSL, we love innovation. It's in our DNA. We're constantly looking for new ways to do things, to improve our own processes, and to better fulfill our purpose by championing technology as a powerful force for positive transformation. So, it stands to reason that internally we make the time and space to tinker, experiment, and chip away at our own limitations through exciting ventures into new and unexplored areas.
We use the following principles to guide our PSL Labs projects:
- Don't just think, do.
We pride ourselves on being doers, not just thinkers. We don't just settle for thinking about concepts, we try to implement them to see what results they yield and what we can learn from them.
- Ideas come from anywhere (or anyone).
If you know PSL, you know we don't pay much mind to hierarchy. Instead, we value initiative and eagerness to learn. We're open to receiving ideas from anyone and after careful review, move forward with the most relevant.
- Try, test, evaluate.
Inspired by Lean methodology, PSL Labs works in cycles of continuous improvement. It's not our intention to craft a strict plan, but rather to map out projects in phases. Then, we can assess, adjust, and improve quickly.
- A lesson learned is a lesson shared.
We're not interested in keeping knowledge limited to a select few. We want every member of our community to benefit from any newly acquired know-how, and broaden the reach of our findings.
- Open door innovation.
PSL's main driver is to contribute to the betterment of people, companies, and society as a whole. So, it makes complete sense that this extends to our innovation efforts as well. Open door innovation means PSL is open to collaborating with clients, educational institutions, communities, and many other organizations in order to build tech solutions with meaningful, real-world applications.

Innovation: an integral part of company frameworks
Our projects diverge into two strategic categories:
How to better make software
As a technology company, we permanently push the limits of our approach to software development. In this category, we focus on rethinking how we can make better software; applying different tech to improve processes, optimize resources, manage dependencies, and more.
Solutions for PSL or client needs
We create products for internal or client use that offer added value —be it streamlining processes, enhancing capabilities or increasing efficiency. This allows us to try out new technologies or processes and gain the experience needed to bring improved and innovative solutions to our clients.
Currently, we're exploring different kinds of tech in our PSL Labs projects, including modern programming languages, blockchain frameworks, machine learning strategies, and advanced graph databases, among others.

What's Next for PSL Labs?
Currently, PSL Labs is gearing up for what promises to be a very active and productive 2019! On our list are efforts to dive deep into key topics, like Machine Learning, Multi-Cloud and Poly-Cloud strategies, Cloud cost optimization, high performance computing (HPC), and Deep Learning.
Likewise, we're constantly on the lookout for partnership opportunities with clients and academia. This way, more people can work together to arrive at creative solutions to real-world problems.
