ISG Imagine Your Future® Podcast – Episode 27: What Is Digital Engineering and Why Does It Matter?
An Interview with Gaurav Gupta, ISG Partner & Global Head, Digital Engineering.
As we look back over the past decade from what is now a networked, intelligent and connected economy, we see engineering as a transformed field. The way businesses design, deliver, consume and partner to source will never be the same. Given these
trends, what should organizations do next?
How do I enable a new connected enterprise and Digital Twin-/Threads, to improve services revenue, supply chain traceability and enhanced product offerings?
How do I scale my IoT initiatives and enable data insights across IT – OT (Operations Technology) – ET (Engineering Technology) domains? How do I elevate my customer delivery experience through an agile, resilient and demand-driven supply chain? How do I optimize my technology backbone across the cloud – edge spectrum?
How do I enable a software-driven business and an improved customer experience?
How do I unbundle software and hardware to define my new core and new operating model? How do I transition to a platform as a product strategy, for faster time to market / NPI and better customer engagement? How can industrial DevOps enable continuous releases?
How do I balance factory productivity, agility, visibility and new business models with IT-OT integration as the new basis of Industry 4.0?
How do I improve asset utilization and leverage predictive maintenance? How do I modernize legacy Engineering & OT Apps and make them a transformation accelerator?
How does my new software driven strategy change my Make-Buy-Partner decisions?
How do I achieve effective partnering with suppliers, strengthening collaboration, and enabling joint innovation? How do I optimize my core engineering spends?
How do I handle sustainability not as a one-off project but rather as a strategic agenda?
How do I formulate and execute a net-zero strategy? How do I improve performance in the circular economy and also reduce product recalls? How do I improve IT’s contribution to sustainability via Agile, DevSecOps, Digital Twins and optimizing algorithms?
