Without tightly integrating the software development process with product manufacturing, mistakes happen that companies cannot afford to make – errors that can even be a matter of life and death.
The good news is that tighter integration between Application Lifecycle Management and Product Lifecycle Management – the convergence of PLM and ALM – can change all this, reconfiguring systems engineering for the better and offering greater management control. Polarion has been at the forefront this initiative – an approach that we call "product and application lifecycle management" (PALM).
I have started a new open LinkedIn groupPolarion PALM. I invite you to join me, my colleagues at Polarion Software, and group members from a number of industries as we carry on discussing and learning about this trend that, although still young, is already upon us.
Looking forward to meeting you on LinkedIn!
