"Product development and innovation continue to be transformed by the capabilities of PLM systems to improve quality, collaboration, cost, and time. However, successful product and process transformation requires integration across multiple organizations and the enterprise systems on which they rely. The data that drives this collaboration is the digital thread of the product life cycle and is necessary for manufacturers to improve development, production, sourcing, and service, both inside and outside the industry ecosystem. It can be difficult for manufacturers to keep up with the pace of technological change, and so strategic consultants are called on to define a strategy that reflects the manufacturer's current reality and future opportunity. As such, they become extended team members to provide technology and industry guidance for successful digital transformation," said John Snow, research director, Product Innovation Strategies, IDC.
