"The challenge with product development is not that organizations are bereft of ideas that can potentially turn into blockbusters," said Harin Shetty, managing director at BearingPoint. "Rather, it is developing a process that can harness an organization's creativity. BearingPoint offers a differentiated, integrated solution based our understanding of the various stakeholder owner and phase requirements in taking a product to market excellence."
The BearingPoint PLM solution offers a better alternative to siloed or point models because it connects the right technology to integrate roles, systems and processes for managing the life of a product from idea to obsolescence.
"We help our clients understand where they are in a PLM maturity model, and better align their PLM strategies to enterprise goals with a host of implementation alternatives," said Shetty.
Shetty and SC Johnson program director, SAP PLM, Gene Holtz will discuss PLM in detail during the "A Real-Life Case Study of a Global SAP PLM Implementation" session at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, April 24, in the Consumer Industries Theater. An executive debrief and networking reception in BearingPoint's Suite B218, located in Building B, Level 2, will follow the presentation.
Additional information on the BearingPoint PLM solution can be found in the recently published BearingPoint white paper, "The perfect launch: A new approach to product life cycle management for consumer goods companies," which is available at www.bearingpoint.com/sap.
