Organizing for Digital

Coverage Areas: Digital Transformation

Planned Publication Date: June 2020

Many companies are trying to embark on their digital transformation. However, success rates are not that high; estimates indicate that more than 80% of digital transformation projects fail. While there are many determining factors for success, one of them is the structure of the organization and the culture within an organization. Interestingly, with the arrival of digital, companies also need to re-imagine their traditional structures. How can companies organize themselves to ensure success in their digital transformation efforts? What type of a culture should they build? With the arrival of digital, what should the org structure look like to ensure success in the future?

Will 3D Printing Replace Conventional Manufacturing?

This report surveys the lightweighting options from materials to design, assesses which will have the greatest commercial impact, and evaluates how they will interact with other critical auto industry trends like vehicle autonomy, connectivity, and novel ownership models.

Do digital healthcare models lead to more cost savings than traditional healthcare models?

Coverage Areas: Consumer IoT More...

Planned Publication Date: June 2020

Digital technologies in healthcare are expected to increase in scope and to affect ever more parts of the healthcare system, as Lux has postulated previously. It is, however, vital to examine if new digital methods and innovations provide monetary value compared with traditional models of care. Technology for technology’s sake without evidence of being less costly in the long run, especially in a climate where healthcare costs are becoming unsustainable, can be catastrophic to all stakeholders. Through different models and projections, this report will evaluate if digital transformation of healthcare will indeed be less costly in the long run compared to traditional healthcare models.

Ultra-wideband radar sensors

Coverage Areas: Consumer IoT More...

Planned Publication Date: June 2020

Ultra-wideband (UWB) radar is a promising technology for the detection of humans and moving objects, through-wall imaging, and search and rescue applications due to its high-resolution and high-accuracy features. With the progressive development of miniaturized, energy-efficient, and low-cost radar sensors, the applications expand to personal electronics, IoT devices, health care products, and robotics. This report will outline the landscape of the technology, reveal the challenges that need to be overcome, and provide outlooks on the future roles of the UWB radar sensors.

Technologies and Strategies for Scaling AI

Coverage Areas: Digital Transformation More...

Planned Publication Date: June 2020

Many companies understand the value of AI and have gotten started with numerous AI projects. However, far fewer companies have successfully scaled up these AI projects across their organization to create a significant return on investment. This report will highlight both the technologies and strategies needed to bridge this gap by addressing the key challenges of scaling up.

The Future of the Composites Industry

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: July 2020

The composites industry is growing rapidly with the development of new technologies and market applications, but still remains very small compared to other incumbent materials like steel or aluminum. This report will take a holistic view on the state of the composites industry — encompassing both glass and carbon fiber alike — identifying key drivers and challenges and discuss strategies to grow the overall industry pie rather than simply competing over current markets.
