Digitally Transforming Innovation: Engineering and R&D DX Use Cases
By: Jeffrey HojloProgram Director, Product Innovation Strategies, Robert ParkerSenior Vice President, Enterprise Applications, Data Intelligence, Services, and Industry Research, Shawn FitzgeraldResearch Director, Digital Transformation Strategies
This IDC Tech Buyer Presentation highlights our recently published engineering and research and development (R&D) digital transformation (DX) use case taxonomy. Enterprises must transform the way they develop products and services to realize speed-to-market goals, compete globally in existing and new markets, and meet customer expectations for varied, customized experiences. The availability of platform-based systems and software tools, powered by 3rd Platform technology, is enabling manufacturers of all sizes across industry to achieve these goals.
Engineering and R&D organizations are taking the following key steps to digitally transform innovation:
- Opening, extending, and accelerating engineering and R&D processes and approach, leveraging digital technologies
- Moving to a rapid, agile, and digital approach to produce highly complex products and services through flexible, rapid processes; supply chains; and service
- Enabling technical, business, supply chain, manufacturing, and service to work in a unified platform environment, ensure quality products and processes, and meet dynamic customer needs consistently
As part of this transformation, there are several key DX use cases that span the organization, as product innovation evolves to be a team sport involving business leaders, sales and marketing, supply chain, manufacturing, and service.
This document is most effective when reviewed in concert with IDC's Worldwide Digital Transformation Use Case Taxonomy, 2018: Engineering and R&D (IDC #US44240318, September 2018).
