PLEMichelle Boucher Speaks at Big Lever’s Momentum 2021 Symposium (virtual event)


PLEWhat role should feature-based Product Line Engineering (PLE) play in a digital transformation strategy?

On May 11-12, 2021, Big Lever will be holding their Momentum 2021 Symposium and this question will be the underlying theme of the event.

Tech-Clarity’s Michelle Boucher will join the list of speakers and she will explore the question, why should business leaders care about PLE? Her talk will be at 1:45 EDT on Tuesday, May 11. You can register for the event here.

As products continue to grow in complexity, engineering jobs will only get harder. Digital transformation can help, and for many companies, this last year has dramatically accelerated adoption. With this growing adoption, what steps should you take to ensure you don’t fall behind your competition? Michelle’s talk will discuss how PLE fits into the digital transformation vision and the impact on the business. She will also explain how providing engineers with better solutions for PLE will help to execute a digital transformation strategy, while empowering your engineers to focus more on innovation and less on tedious tasks.
