Upcoming ISG Provider Lens™ report will evaluate providers enabling faster and more predictable product development, rollout and aftermarket support
Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), a leading global technology research and advisory firm, has launched a research study examining digital engineering services that have enhanced the development and ongoing support of products at a growing number of enterprises.
The study results will be published in a comprehensive ISG Provider Lens™ report, called Digital Engineering Services, scheduled to be released in April 2023. The report will cover companies offering services for product and service design, engineering, development, customer engagement and other functions.
Enterprise buyers will be able to use information from the report to evaluate their current vendor relationships, potential new engagements and available offerings, while ISG advisors use the information to recommend providers to the firm’s buy-side clients.
More companies are using digital engineering services as competitive pressures force them to develop and release new products more quickly and at lower cost. These requirements have increased the adoption of virtual prototyping to reduce risks in development, while digitization is changing every step of the value chain, from product inception to manufacturing, testing and aftermarket services.
“As technologies and customer needs change more quickly, enterprises need predictable and controllable product lifecycles,” said Jan Erik Aase, partner and global leader, ISG Provider Lens Research. “Services enabling digital engineering transformation are making this possible.”
ISG has distributed surveys to approximately 60 providers. Working in collaboration with ISG’s global advisors, the research team will produce four quadrants representing the digital engineering services the typical enterprise is buying, based on ISG’s experience working with its clients. The four quadrants are:
- Design and Development (Products, Services and Experiences), evaluating services for integrated hardware/software development and feature augmentation, including new data-driven methods and agile design, that yield faster innovation cycles and better products and customer experiences.
- Integrated Customer/User Engagement, assessing providers of intelligent aftermarket services for product support through digital platforms. Important capabilities in this segment include providing AI-enabled customer service, remote field support with AR/VR technologies and self-service knowledge support.
- Platforms and Applications Services, covering providers’ digital platform engineering capabilities, including business and technical design, orchestration, building new experiences and using microservices-based architectures.
- Intelligent Operations, evaluating providers of services to make operations at greenfield and brownfield sites more connected and autonomous, reducing dependence on manual interventions and increasing efficiency.
Geographically focused reports from the study will cover the global digital engineering services market and examine products and services available in the U.S. and Europe. ISG analysts Shirish Kulkarni, Tapati Bandopadhyay and Srinivasan PN will serve as authors of the report.
A list of identified providers and vendors and further details on the study are available in this digital brochure. Companies not listed as digital engineering services providers can contact ISG and ask to be included in the study.
