Accenture collaborated with one of the world’s leading wireless technology provider to execute a product lifecycle management (PLM) environment and proprietary data separation, in conjunction with establishing a new engineering environment as part of a business divestiture initiative.
The client is a leading next-generation wireless technology provider globally. With its innovative solutions, it has contributed to the evolution of digital communications, making wireless more personal, affordable and accessible.
Continuing its focus on core business activities, the client decided to divest one of its business units—a wholly-owned subsidiary and leader in telematics and fleet-management technology.
As a technology-driven business, one of the priorities for that subsidiary to sustain its business upon separation was to create an independent product lifecycle management (PLM) ecosystem. It was equally important that this business unit’s proprietary engineering data was decoupled with no intellectual property (IP) leakage from the client once the two entities became independent.
The client sought Accenture’s help for this mission-critical initiative.
