Abstract:  New technologies promise to get you the right information at the right time in the right context to help everyone involved in the product development process to contribute meaningfully and efficiently. But what does that mean? Based on how you work, your specific job responsibilities and the decisions you must make along the way, what kind of information would be most useful for you to have and in what format? Join this roundtable, led by Peter Bilello, president of industry management consulting and analyst firm, CIMdata, to hear what your peers are saying and doing about it.
1. What information would be most valuable to you if you had it real-time, versus archived?
2. If you could blend two types of information together at one time, which two would it be?
3. How are information silos (and latency) impacting your ability to do your job effectively and efficiently?
4. How are the same information hurdles impacting your company’s ability to get products to market?
5. Where is the line between consolidating all information into one unified database and using BI tools to aggregate data from across data sources? What are the pros and cons of each approach?
