Story of Skyjed
Leica Ison is the CEO & Founder of Skyjed.
In her executive career where she held roles as Chief Technology Officer and Head of Product, she launched more than 55 technology products to market across consumer and B2B markets.
After 20 years working in product management for organisations in technology, telecommunications and healthcare markets, Leica took a break to reflect on the whole box and dice and thought about how it could all be done better.
In that time, she interviewed over 100 product managers. Their insights were compelling, she discovered that most businesses were focussed on launching new products for growth, but lacked digital tools to conquer the challenges that almost all products experience post-launch. Product managers were spending more than half their time on ad-hoc reporting, wasting productive time to largely look backwards, and still relying on the ancient PowerPoint as a reporting tool.
To solve the issues, Leica created Skyjed.
Skyjed test-drives products at any point of their life cycles and delivers a comprehensive health check across key performance drivers in hours instead of weeks. Skyjed also succeeds in providing comprehensive product performance data in real time that can be shared across functions for quick business decisions, it’s speed powers agility in today’s environment of unpredictable and rapid technological development.
