Integrated Product Lifecycle Management (iPLM)

The Situation Today

As consumers demand innovative products at a quicker pace and competitors around the globe vie to win their business, companies are under pressure to shrink the time it takes to move product upgrades from an idea on paper to an offering in the marketplace. Product lifecycles have become highly variable because of changing consumer needs, but identifying and responding to them is extremely challenging. Coordinating all the activities from idea germination through product obsolescence demands a highly elastic tool. 

How HCL Can Help

HCL’s iPLM solution helps companies reduce product development time and PLM operations costs while achieving faster time to profit. HCL believes that a product management solution must not be limited to PLM but also must integrate enterprise-wide applications with people and processes across functions and product lifecycles. But our emphasis on integration is only part of what makes our solution stand out. Here are some other key differentiators:

  • A strong engineering capability is part of our DNA and a crucial aspect of all iPLM engagements
  • Our approach treats PLM solutioning as the hub for product innovation
  • Our iPLM solution enables the shift from a functional perspective to a holistic business process perspective of product development
  • We extend collaboration within the enterprise and in the extended enterprise, and integrate our solution with enterprise applications: SCM, ERP, CRM, and offerings on enterprise search and mobility
  • We offer PLM MDM – single-source truth across product, process, and quality — and PLM operations management
