Demand for connected physical products, associated analytics, and infrastructure is increasing in the marketplace and organizations that integrate their products and services within a connected ecosystem realize the value of these investments.
Transformation can be turbulent and lengthy. But we can help you become a transformative enterprise – that does it naturally. From getting to the right business model to making your people primed for innovation, our connected physical product design and development services support your business model reinvention and growth aspirations.
Connected physical products are tangible goods that have been integrated or enhanced with advanced technology. These advanced technologies include sensors, connectivity, and digital processing capabilities. This allows products to sense their environment, act based on certain conditions, collect data, and transmit that data to other connected products and systems in the ecosystem. These functionalities bring incredible value to both the companies that develop the products and the customers who use them. Examples of these products include:
Connected industrial equipment
Smart home devices
Connected physical products have the power to revolutionize and disrupt industries by enabling:
Data optimization and synchronization
Predictive and preventative maintenance
Product-as-a-service business models
Connected physical product businesses can originate organically or be transformed from existing analog or digitally native products. Regardless, most organizations can require new capabilities, skills and ways of working to operate these new connected physical businesses.
Wherever you are on your journey to innovation and growth, we are here to help. Using PwC’s business model reinvention (BMR) framework, we collaborate closely with organizational leaders to map out a plan that drives towards value creation and growth.
