Engage with IDC Industry Analysts

This blog highlights some of the themes that are intersecting today within large organizations as part of digital transformation, namely how innovation and technology can come together to create new value for manufacturers in the service lifecycle to deliver to customers.


Virtual models of products and assets – now more commonly known as digital twins - have been used by designers and engineers in concert with simulation to meet product and production requirements for years. The opportunity with “digital twins” is to take these virtual models and extend them to the rest of the team, outside of engineering, involved with product design and development, as well as production and operations.


This blog highlights research that IDC Manufacturing Insights has completed on manufacturers' increasing use of configure, price, quote (CPQ) applications to enhance the customer experience and empower sales channels to sell complex products and services.

Simulation Driven Innovation

I spent a day with Dassault Systemes’ SIMULIA team recently at their headquarters in Johnston, Rhode Island, U.S., on the outskirts of Providence, learning about what it means for a manufacturer to use simulation to accelerate innovation. The day wasn’t only about simulation (also known as CAE – Computer Aided Engineering) tools, however.


This blog recaps the main messages shared at the recent Siemens Innovation USA event and IDC's analysis of them. The event took place at Siemens Corporate Technology USA headquarters in Princeton, NJ on March 27, 2017.
