Product Development Optimization

  • Product development teams are constantly faced with more priorities than resources. The top priority remains developing features to beat the competition and solve customer problems. Add to that the need to support new technologies such as virtualization and the cloud. Then the business wants support for new business models and licensing strategies to try to maximize revenues—important needs that distract from the mission at hand.

The challenges: support diverse business needs

  • How can you change licensing strategies while keeping limited resources focused on strategic priorities?
  • Can your development team meet deadlines while adapting to changing needs for product packaging and licensing?
  • How can you avoid dropping product features from your product roadmap so you can ship an installer or add licensing or provide product updates?
  • Are your product managers changing how the product is sold-and you find yourself having to make code changes
  • Are your product managers in the dark about which features are being used and which  can be dropped or which operating system is being used?
