Rather than focusing on discrete products, companies should develop platforms based on modular designs, with hardware and software that can be continuously upgraded.
Eventually, once the circular value chain is mature and optimized, secondary materials will cost less than primary materials.
The shift from standalone hardware to smart, connected products is pervasive—and it’s here to stay. Forward-thinking hardware companies are taking leadership positions in a new era of product development. Will you be one of them?
It’s a new world. OEMs that adopt a new approach can improve profits, slash costs, and shorten development cycles.
In-vehicle connectivity, electrification, autonomous driving, and the shared economy are revolutionizing the automotive industry—but innovation through software is a game changer.
People expect frequent software updates and new features for their smartphones, and now they want the same for their cars. Automakers must restructure their engineering operations to keep up.
The regional growth rates of the engineering, construction, and services industry are now converging, making it imperative for companies to get ready to compete in a one-speed world.
Engineering, construction, and services (ECS) technology companies have higher valuation multiples than the ECS industry as a whole, a portfolio of S&P 500 technology companies, and the overall S&P 500.
By strengthening their position over the long term, leading companies in the engineering, construction, and services industry have demonstrated that it is possible to sustain profitable growth.
