Our coverage of digital innovation doesn’t attempt to track each new technology trend or buzzword, but rather we explore the way large companies are organizing differently to identify trends and build digital products and services that meet real market needs. The big challenge that many organizations will face when doing digital innovation outside of the IT organization is engaging that organization’s help when it is time to scale up and support roll-outs.

We surveyed large companies about the challenges they face in creating connected products and services, as well as the success factors and metrics they are using. The results appear in our research report “Getting Connected Products Right.”
