RESEARCH REPORT

In brief

In brief

  • Accenture helps transform your operations model by reducing time-to-market and total R&D spent on non-product differentiating functions by up to 25%.
  • Engineering and product operations increase value from product ideation to end of life. It is the primary tool for reduction of total R&D spend.
  • High-tech companies need to accelerate technology, offer integrated products, new licensing and as-a-service models and a global liquid workforce.


As product development becomes more complex, engineering and product operations will play an increasingly critical role in the product lifecycle—from concept to customer. In this environment, emerging trends are pushing companies to evolve their R&D and engineering operating models to remain competitive. How can established companies adapt? True transformation starts with a continuous "shift left" culture to boost R&D's innovation, agility and access to new revenue.
