Product Life Cycle Management
Technology changes are inevitable. Our engineers and program managers share information on platform and component changes on a quarterly basis, and typically they give visibility to known changes at least 90 days in advance of an impact on your product. This advanced notice allows you to review pending changes and determine if they will have an impact on your software images or hardware requirements and deliverables. You can request new First Article (FA) systems to regression test and verify proper function of your solution.
Platform life-cycles differ based on the platform you select. Server platforms typically offer a 3-year product life cycle, while client and endpoint devices tend to have shorter lifespans. Collaborative technology transition planning is an important service that our engineering team provides since it is critical to avoiding supply interruptions. We construct and maintain technology roadmaps for all of the products we sell, and these roadmaps act as a planning guide to anticipate technology changes, plan and migrate to next generation platforms, before they impact shipments.
