IDC's Worldwide Digital Transformation Use Case Taxonomy, 2023: Engineering and R&D
This IDC study discusses the key strategic priority, programs, and use cases that executives of leading engineering and R&D teams across industries as diverse as automotive, consumer goods, chemical, high tech, life sciences, and retail should organize their teams around, internally based and ecosystem partners.
"Increasingly, as manufacturers across multiple industries move to a digital, extended way of developing products, the traditional 'engineering and R&D' team is being extended to include other resources and processes such as sales and marketing, product management, suppliers and partners, manufacturing, and service. This open, extended, digital platform approach to engineering, R&D, and new product development will enable manufacturers to get to market as quickly as possible while simultaneously managing and mitigating product, supply chain, and demand complexity," said John Snow, research director, Product Innovation Strategies at IDC.
