In the consumer electronics industry, time-to-market is the typical test of a company's agility—but time-to-revenue determines a company's longevity. Short product life cycles drive the need for even shorter product development cycles, so consumer electronics manufacturers must focus on the stages of the development cycle that add the most value to their products. Given this brief, critical window, you can't afford to pick the wrong vendor.
