Do any of the following statements sound a little too familiar?
  • The speed in which technological advancements take place significantly impacts product development, maintenance, and the product lifecycle.
  • There is a gap in adoption of these advancements between startups and established companies.
  • We are having difficulty implementing these advancements beyond product development.
  • It isn't always obvious how these technological advancements interfere with or influence each other, which creates uncertainty about where to start.
  • Customers are no longer willing to wait for their product, which pushes companies towards manufacturing smaller quantities, even for a market of one.

The digital enablement of key business processes is growing rapidly. At times, these developments seem to be moving at warp speed, are difficult to follow and understand, and are even more difficult to integrate into one’s business. The opportunities listed below, and their business value are clear, but many have no idea what to do with them.
