Product development involves a lot of moving parts, which can increase tenfold when factoring in connected products that need applications developed in tandem. Organizations creating these kinds of products need an application lifecycle management (ALM) solution to keep all components on track while also meeting compliance standards. Codebeamer has the tools teams need to overcome the most common development challenges facing today’s organizations.

Product Development Challenges

Regardless of organization or product specifics, many development teams struggle with the same issues:

  • Fragmented collaboration: Teams often work in isolated silos even though they are working toward a common goal. Ultimately, this lack of integration prevents real-time collaboration and wastes a lot of time and resources.
  • Inefficient processes: Less-than-optimal integration then forces the creation of inefficient processes to fill gaps. These processes can include paper documents, data duplication, manual data entry, and more.
  • Compliance issues: The inefficient processes created by working silos create issues in quality, risk, and regulatory compliance.
  • Wasted resources: Compliance issues create long lead times and can be costly to remedy down the line.

Teams must find ways to improve collaboration and eliminate inefficient processes to stay compliant while also reducing costs and lead times.
