Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Technology

The product lifecycle management (PLM) software market is evolving rapidly and growing fast. It can sometimes appear to be a confusing jumble of unrelated system functionality, and finding real experts can be a challenge. At Kalypso, we can make sense of this confusion and help your organization harness the very real power of PLM processes and systems.

When used appropriately, PLM software can help you to generate better ideas, manage your pipeline, design more efficiently, collaborate across functional and company boundaries, and significantly reduce the cost of regulatory compliance. Too often, companies embark on their PLM journeys without a coordinated, cross-functional plan of action. This can lead to conflict, confusion, redundant investment, and, ultimately, failure.

The expert team at Kalypso can help. We combine world-class management consulting capabilities with PLM technology and process skills to deliver successful solutions. Developing and executing clear PLM strategies to deliver results for your organization is our specialty.

From defining a PLM strategy to selecting the right system for your organization, to implementing a solution or optimizing it, our team of consultants can help. We have worked with all of the leading PLM providers, and we have first-hand knowledge of the software applications and how they are each unique.

To help navigate the PLM journey, we have created proprietary tools and methods to accelerate work on a project, including our PLM Capabilities Framework. This framework helps clients to address and prioritize what is needed to make PLM successful in their organization, from defining the strategic capabilities to determining the technical infrastructure.
