Global Software Development


Business Value Delivered

Software is more critical than ever in manufactured products.  Software drives differentiation in products and even defines many products from the phones we use to the cars we drive. Global Software Development from PTC offers organizations a better way to manage the development of software intensive products such that more innovative products with higher quality are delivered to market in less time driving increasing levels of market share and profitability.

Global Software Development is Optimized for Software Intensive Products

Many companies offer tools they claim will help in the development of software applications.  In fact, the Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) tools market is saturated with vendors that have a range of offerings from point solutions to complex suites of federated tools.  The problem is that developing IT applications is very different from engineering software intensive products.  Traditional ALM tools lack several key characteristics found in PTC Integrity, our market leading Global Software Development offering:

  • Native support for product lines and variants – The ability to automatically branch and reuse all software artifacts including requirements, design, code and test is critical to maintaining quality and productivity levels while diversifying product offerings
  • Built for high velocity engineering change – Software accounts for up to 90% of all changes in products, but change does not happen in a vacuum and must be coordinated across systems, software and hardware
  • Engineered to streamline compliance for safety critical product development – Reducing the cost and time to comply with stringent standards such as DO-178B/C (ED-12B/C), ISO 26262, and ISO 14971 is critical to leading companies in Aerospace and Defense, Automotive and Medical Devices
  • Tightly integrated with PLM – The software embedded within products is changing the way in which products are developed, manufactured, and serviced, therefore, Global Software Development solutions must extend and enhance Product Lifecycle Management for software intensive products
  • Drives collaboration across the technology supply chain – Software intensive products are developed by teams of teams distributed across the globe in a complex network of customers, manufacturers, and suppliers and Global Software Development must simplify coordination and drive collaboration across this technology value chain.
