IDC PlanScape: IT Product Management Strategies for Government Digital Innovation

This IDC study identifies product management best practices and recommends how government IT organizations can transfer and apply these capabilities to innovative digital transformation (DX) service delivery teams. The new ITPM role and skills revolve around understanding an IT product's internal agency market, the broader agency mission utilization aspects of bringing a product to this market, and the new skills required to "broker" complex services coming from multiple third-party solution providers. IT product managers must efficiently and effectively steward a product through its entire product life cycle (PLC). This new ITPM professionalism can be applied not only to the development/broader application of DX products but also to the effective management of the entire portfolio of IT products and services that IT delivers to its internal agency business customers."The new IT product management role revolves around understanding a product's agencywide market, the broader development/cost-effectiveness aspects of bringing a product to market within an agency, and the new skills required to 'broker' complex services coming from multiple third-party solution providers," says Thom Rubel, adjunct research advisor, IT Executive Programs. "This approach is game changing for government IT in delivering innovation through digital transformation."
