Companies invest and deploy lifecycle management technologies as a supporting infrastructure of a true 'end-to-end' vision. On paper this is all good and well but in practice, this transparency is actually unachievable in most cases and leads to a siloed value chain: PLM for design of product, ALM for development of software and SLM for management of service. However, with the introduction of IoT and related platforms, the model is changing. In this session, Professor Eigner discusses how you must change in order to reap the benefits.
