PLM Services & Solutions

Overview

Today, enterprises are going through digital transformation to stay competitive. However, they are still faced with multiple challenges. Increasing market pressure and competition are forcing them to develop new business models, for which integration of data, processes, technology, and people is a must. Enterprises need to assure digital continuity to avoid disruptions in business. They also need to adopt a customer-centric strategy, where information exchanges with customers and their feedback are the mainstay of the enterprise strategy. Additionally, there is a need for a flexible production backbone that can effectively manage constant product changes.

Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) is fundamental to digital transformation strategy and at the core of business to ensure digital continuity across the extended enterprise— from ideation to the product launch. Investment in next-generation PLM solutions is crucial for the upkeep of a flexible and focused business infrastructure adept at steering business, and also, to respond to changing market requirements. A successful transformation to digital PLM services and a product innovation platform, will depend upon the ability of enterprises to restructure their product lifecycle management strategies, which include the following:

  • Leveraging digital PLM assets created over the years across the ecosystem and facilitating digital continuity across applications
  • Providing the capability to transform from data authoring to data consumption and enable the processes
  • Delivering through agile and efficient development methodologies
