Product Line Engineering: Underwriting ALM and PLM Convergence

With the increasing role that software now plays in innovation and product value, there is a growing need for greater collaboration across multiple domains throughout the product development lifecycle. Many companies are being challenged to achieve better integration of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) technologies and processes. These engineering challenges are exponentially more complex for organizations that must develop and deliver a product line portfolio. As a result, PLE approaches have emerged to provide a unifying framework for efficiently managing feature variation and product line delivery. This podcast and companion report presented by MWD Advisors explores the driving forces behind converging PLM/ALM concerns – and how PLE is playing an increasingly important role in enabling this convergence.
