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 lifecycleā€”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.
