The partnership enables Kalypso to continue to bring industry-leading product innovation and PLM expertise to the world’s top manufacturing organizations, and represents the latest in a series of organizational investments at Endeca to expand its presence in manufacturing.
"Kalypso is extremely well respected as authoritative experts in Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), said Ric Zaenglein, Global Lead, Manufacturing, at Endeca. “Our partnership introduces tools and benefits beyond anything available on the market today, and will go a long way toward addressing the well known pains and short comings of legacy PLM initiatives.”
Extreme market conditions, increasing consolidation and rapid shifts in consumer demand have placed additional risks and upfront costs on product innovation and new product development. These challenges are compounded by the shear volume of data engineers have at their disposal to inform and influence new product design decisions.
Advanced information visibility solutions, such as those offered by Endeca, provide cross-functional groups with new, contextual information as well as historical data that can reduce research within multiple systems and promote innovation by bringing forth new development possibilities. These solutions introduce opportunities for manufacturers to increase margins, lower costs, reduce downstream supply chain risks and create new competitive advantages from their existing information investments.
In a recent online educational session delivered by Endeca and Kalypso entitled “Information Visibility Challenges in Product Lifecycle Management,” the partners illustrate how leveraging advanced information visibility solutions facilitates innovation and new product development by enabling visibility of valuable product-related data, increasing information reuse, and decreasing time spent searching for information. Kalypso also recently published a white paper from an independent research effort to understand how advanced information visibility technologies can drive increasingly efficient innovation.

“The discovery and visibility benefits possible with information visibility technology like Endeca’s are a key missing link in PLM and today’s product development environment," said Bill Poston, Managing Partner at Kalypso. "By partnering with Endeca, we can help our clients increase productivity from information reuse and reduce both upfront and downstream design costs, while accelerating innovation and time to market.”
