Aricent takes pride in partnering with the world’s leading technology brands. Together we’re responsible for innovations that have created new markets worth billions.

Becoming digital durable

Aricent’s research shows that successful R&D-driven companies are competing aggressively on outcomes. These companies have a culture that anticipates disruption and introduces offerings that create sustainable value from IoT. They are digitally durable.

It’s not enough to embrace the new digital era. The existential challenge for companies today is to become digitally durable—to anticipate disruption and transform processes and products to compete on outcomes. Whether it’s understanding the profound impact of self-driving cars on transportation or being a part of the smart-energy revolution, simply closing the digital gap is no longer sufficient.

At the epicenter of the transformation is the R&D organization. R&D is responsible for innovating the design, development and support of the company’s products and services as the implications of Industry 4.0 —specifically the Internet of Things (IoT)—become a reality. Designers and engineers must not just stumble on a hit but systematically arrive at compelling offerings that generate sustainable value from digital technology.

A key challenge for most companies will be arriving at meaningful outcomes through the choreography of software, hardware, connectivity, and the ideal user experience.
