What’s Digital Product Management anyway?

After only 14 percent of their business transformation attempts succeeded, many companies said they wanted to try something other than the usual project management tools. Listening to their needs, we created a digital product management solution to help them move beyond projects to products.

Instead of running a slew of unrelated one-off projects, you shift the focus to the digital products in your business. A digital product is something people like to use, like an airport check-in kiosk, HR benefits portal or online retail store. Underneath each digital product are underpinning assets – such as databases, applications and APIs – that you manage through maintenance and upgrades.

By funding products instead of sporadic work or whole departments, you immediately gain a few business advantages: 

  • Investments are organized the way your business runs.
  • People and money are mapped to clear business outcomes.
  • Work is prioritized based on value, not gut feelings.
  • Teams are empowered to plan and work freely.
  • The business acts confidently when competitors disrupt and customers demand.
