Bringing together PLM and ALM for continuous development for the Internet of Things

The successful delivery of IoT products requires the convergence of systems engineering, mechanical design and software development activities that creates a delivery pipeline of synchronized hardware, electronics and software configurations to ensure IoT products are based on consistent, unified information.

To achieve this goal, you need to link product lifecycle management (PLM) and application lifecycle management (ALM) for a system-level Digital Twin across product variants and a true Digital Thread across the lifecycle.
