Kalypso Complexity Management Service Helps Companies Strategically Control Complexity from Merged Operations, Supply Chains, Reorganizations, Product Proliferation and More

BEACHWOOD, Ohio - Many companies in today's economy are struggling to address business complexity resulting from issues such as mergers and acquisitions, product proliferation, extensive supply chains, and government mandates. In markets where complexity is part of the business structure, managing it effectively is key to controlling cost-efficiency.

"The challenge for many organizations with complex business environments is how to maintain complexity where it matters and drive it out where it's unnecessary," said Bill Poston, a founding partner of Kalypso. "A strategic Complexity Management initiative finds the balance between complexity that adds value versus complexity that adds cost."
