Johnson and Johnson is a microcosm of many leading industry arenas – discrete / part manufacture, process / formula / recipe manufacture, medical device, pharmaceutical, biologic, CPG, capital equipment, hi-tech, service, food, cosmetic - to name but a few and we need to deliver gold standard comprehensive PLM capability across that complex set of businesses within a single global enterprise.
Like the rest of industry, we can no longer afford either the time, resource or investment traditionally required to deploy such capabilities and so need to take an innovative and disruptional approach to ensure we get ahead of the problem statement and decrease our time to value.
