During the “Product Lifecycle Management Strategy, Update and Roadmap” session, Young will discuss how Oracle’s enterprise PLM solution can help companies systematically manage the quality and profitability of their products across the entire enterprise and extended product value chain. Attendees will see how Oracle’s Agile PLM and product information management applications enable companies to link and optimize their product and supply processes, from customer needs to portfolio management, design to release, enterprise quality management and commercialization.

Horst Groesser will highlight how Oracle’s new Innovation Management solution allows companies to identify and define requirements for the best investments to promote to their product portfolio. Audience members will learn about how Oracle’s new solution can help companies capture the priorities and efforts associated with new product development, as well as the risk of dependencies and impacts.
