The Big Data project is part of IRI’s strategic research platform on Digitalization and its Implications for R&D Management. The goal of the study is to validate the hypothesis that digitalization will impact R&D Management. Our research framework has asked the questions:
How will Big Data inform R&D activities?
How will Big Data enable new R&D activities?
How will Big Data disrupt traditional R&D?
In the evaluation of these questions we have considered the impact on strategy, people, technology and process integration. This presentation includes the findings of this study and a discussion of what R&D management needs to do to prepare for a digitalized future.
