Competitive global forces and factors are pressuring technology companies to constantly monitor, calibrate and adjust product development, build and delivery in the face of continuous and often unpredictable demand and supply chain dynamics. Adaptive pricing, agile response to competitive moves, effective stewardship of individual products, as well as astute management of product portfolios have become essential business performance indicators. This paper brings together global brand leaders for qualitative dialogs and quantitative assessments of effectiveness, delivering valuable views and perspectives, as well as detailed best practice methodologies for optimizing product marketing performance.

Do they have a comprehensive product lifecycle approach and global view of both supply and demand chains? These and other issues have been explored in the report, "Market Vigilance, Product Diligence".
