PLM, Product Value Chain, and My Backyard Garden

It’s July and as the temperatures rise here in the US, I’m looking forward to summertime cook-outs, vacations, and sipping a cool beverage poolside. Summer is my favorite season, so every Spring I enjoy the anticipation by trying my hand at gardening. But looking in the backyard now, while all my neighbors’ gardens are flourishing, mine only shows a handful of green tomatoes, unhealthy squash, and fist-sized watermelons. This happened last year, too. After all that springtime effort and investment, this is maddening!

New On-Demand Webcast: How Leading Brands Use Product Quality as a Differentiator

Last week Oracle and Kalypso jointly held a webcast showcasing some of the inspiring ways companies leverage Agile Product Lifecycle Management applications as a foundation for comprehensive Enterprise Quality Management.  If you happened to miss it, don't fret!  The webcast is now available On-Demand.   

Why should you watch this webcast? 

Product quality is a powerful differentiator: surveys consistently prove it is a top influence in consumer buying decisions. And since technology has made quality ratings so easily accessible to the market, companies are under increasing pressure to ensure the highest possible quality and to resolve issues quickly. But many companies are not fully equipped to manage this dynamic. Is your organization prepared to confidently design quality and compliance into your new products, and quickly access, analyze and resolve problems when they surface anywhere in your value chain? To prevent poor quality from affecting great products, leading brands take a comprehensive approach to managing both supplier and product quality, deploying Product Quality Management (PQM) solutions as a part of their overall Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) roadmap. Please take a moment to watch this On-Demand Product Quality Webcast with speakers Joe Erickson of Oracle and Fred Brown of Kalypso featuring an informative discussion on how Agile PLM and PLM for Process can help your company prepare for and manage your product quality and regulatory requirements.

There's even a special offer included in the webcast... watch it today to find out!
