Today the main objective of almost all enterprises, regardless of size or scale, is maximizing profits. Hence, to
realize this goal, they have to juggle competing priorities like maintaining current products, investing in next-
generation products, and navigating changing fiscal environments. Since enterprises drive towards achieving this
goal without a proper analysis of their existing capabilities, it can spread a firm’s resources thin, resulting in
delayed timelines, less effective processes, lower quality products and uncertain profits.              Therefore, to
maximize profit what is required not just a strong desire to succeed but also effective strategies that make use of
available resources and existing capabilities to create profitable opportunities. This calls for expert advices for the
enterprises.


Leaders in the sector with expertise in application lifecycle management and product lifecycle management offer
advisory services that help to identify high-value optimization opportunities, address critical challenges, and
transform product operations.


They are fundamentally different from third-party consulting firms as they not only provide suggestions for
efficiency gains but also deliver the desired outcomes. Unlike most other firms that offer a "business process re-
engineering" or "downsizing" approach, leaders in this sector takes a "business transformation" approach. That is
to say, instead of simply focusing on lowering an enterprise’s costs, they optimize an enterprise’s business and
technology in order to reallocate talent and management bandwidth to higher-value activities. Besides, they
collaborate directly with the enterprises’ R&D organizations to effectively improve processes, technologies and
overall product quality.


The following are some of the areas of interest of the software R & D services experts who provide efficient
advisory services.


·    Globalization
·    Location Portfolio Strategy
·    Captive Transformation
·    Product Architecture
·    Product Delivery / Deployment
·    Distributed Agile Development
·    Test Transformation
·    Automation
For instance, consider an enterprise that requires expert advice in the field of distributed agile development. An
expert in this field would combine methodology and state-of-the-art product lifecycle management tools to
overcome the challenges of working across a distributed environment. This results in
·    High-quality products with accelerated timelines and reduced development costs (by up to 30%)
·    Consistency and product stability through clearly documented work practices
·    Complete visibility and traceability


Thus with advice from the experts in the field, enterprises can truly identify high value opportunities and thereby
increase their profit margin.
