"Leading manufacturers point to successful product launches as critical to their market and revenue growth strategy, yet barely one-third feel this process is under control...The challenge is that [a] product launch is a cross-functional business process that requires seamless execution across the groups responsible for defining market demand, designing new products, and supplying and servicing customers," according to Michael Burkett, a vice president at AMR Research in the report titled The CIO's Guide the PERFECT Product Launch. The report also states, "...Unfortunately because application technology providers have remained siloed in their own areas of expertise, the inhibited flow of information between these domains has limited the responsiveness product launch teams require."
Right Hemisphere, with its Right Hemisphere 5 platform, is aimed right at the heart of solving various communication and collaboration problems across functional silos, customers, and partners. The platform includes new releases of Right Hemisphere's software stack, including major improvements and feature additions to its flagship Deep Exploration client and Deep Server enterprise software. These flagship products were fine-tuned based on direct customer input from Right Hemisphere customers such as DaimlerChrysler, Bell Helicopter, and Sikorsky, among others. The platform features:
"3D PDF is emerging as a de facto standard for secure, dependable information exchange in documents that contain interactive 3D and CAD data," said Tom Hale, senior vice president of Adobe's Knowledge Worker Solutions Business Unit. "The Right Hemisphere 5 platform -- along with Adobe Acrobat 3D for publishing and editing, Adobe LiveCycle for IP security and workflow, and the ubiquitous Adobe Reader -- enables manufacturers to significantly reduce costs and increase the effectiveness of their product communication and collaboration with customers, employees, and partners."
