NAVIGATING THE TRANSITION TO DEVELOP SMART, CONNECTED PRODUCTS
Today, many companies are trying to navigate the transition from traditional, mechanical products to smart, connected ones. As a result, the composition of products is changing. That, in turn, drives fundamental changes in development. Read on to learn more about these challenges and how Lifecycle Insights helps.
DESIGNING SMART CONNECTED PRODUCTS IS A GRUELING TASK.
Embedded software is growing exponentially. Electronics complexity is exploding. Mechanical components are skirting safety factors. Streaming data to IoT platforms is now a must-have.
Designing smart connected products is no easy task. It’s a grueling one.
Despite those challenges, development constraints are tightening. Budgets are still shrinking. Schedules continue to get shorter. Hiring is often curtailed.
TECHNOLOGY-LED INITIATIVES CAN BE EFFECTIVE OR DISRUPTIVE.
Technology-led initiatives offer great promise. Such efforts can be incredibly effective, empowering design teams to develop better products on shorter schedules with fewer resources.
Yet, those benefits are not guaranteed. Such efforts can actually be disruptive. Learning curves, new processes, and cultural pushback can undermine productivity.
All too often, organizations become frozen between opportunity and risk.
WE ARM EXECUTIVES WITH RESEARCH AND THOUGHT LEADERSHIP GUIDANCE.
Lifecycle Insights digitally publishes research and thought leadership guidance on technology-led initiatives.
That includes research findings, educational articles, technological forecasts, and publications that serve many purposes. They verify if such efforts deliver value. They help orient yourself amongst the confusing terminology in the industry. They forecast technological advances, revealing their potential or flaws. They offer guidance on the selection and adoption of technologies and initiatives.
EXECUTIVES MAKE BETTER INVESTMENT AND DEPLOYMENT DECISIONS.
Armed with the right insights, executives are enabled to make better investment and adoption decisions.
That translates to pursuing the efforts that will yield the most benefits and deferring, or even ignoring, the others. It means lining up the right mix of skill, role, process, measurement, and technology changes. It translates to rolling out those changes in the right order and timing.
All that, in turn, empowers the organization to reap more value from technology-led initiatives in less time, with more surety, and less disruption.
