Product Lifecycle Management

The management of organizational Products, and how these products are delivered by Business Services, Contracts, Business Processes, Knowledge Functions, etc. – in short the Proposition Model and it’s Capabilities – is often not as a capability of Enterprise Architecture. Because the Proposition Model, the Capability Map and the Service Delivery are essential for embedding agility, value management, etc. Enterprise Architects has developed the Product Lifecycle Support as a Capability, including supporting tools.

 

Problems and Solutions

Within the contemporary enterprise architecture approach, the Product Lifecycle Support is often not seen as a part of the capability of Enterprise Architecture. Because of this several thresholds for improvements, build-in agility, easier implementation, etc. will be met at later phases of the transition process. Enterprise Architects delivers an approach including supportive tools, for Product Lifecycle Management.
