A recent panel discussion held at IBM Innovate 2011, entitled the Convergence of ALM, PLM and Product Line Engineering, brought together industry leaders – including Bola Rotibi, Creative Intellect Consulting; Dr. Charles Krueger, BigLever Software; Rainer Ersch, Siemens; Marcos Novaes and Greg Gorman, IBM – to explore the issues and challenges created by this technology convergence.

As a follow-on to the panel discussion, Creative Intellect Consulting (CIC) is conducting a survey focused on two specific points of validation:

  1. To understand where organizations see convergence happening between the Product development/delivery processes (PLM) and the software engineering/delivery (ALM/SDLC) processes, along with how they expect the governance for both to be managed.

  2. To assess the appetite for Agile and LEAN processes and the level of understanding of both.

All respondents who complete the survey will receive a copy of the survey report and will be entered into a drawing to win a half day consulting session with CIC. The winner will be notified by the end of July 2011.
