In June and July 2011, Creative Intellect Consulting UK undertook a survey to assess the level of understanding and knowledge within the systems and smart product enablement market for software and product lifecycle convergence points. Our survey was open to systems and product delivery professionals attending IBM Rational Innovate 2011 in Orlando, Florida; EDN Europe readership community; BigLever Software’s on-line community; and systems and hardware engineering professionals from around the world. This report identifies where the collaboration and interaction points are and determines the appetite for Agile methodologies and practices within the systems and smart product enablement market. The results offer a mixed bag of reassurances and concerns that requires more rigorous support from within the supply community and greater drive from systems and product delivery organizations.
