Upchain Connects the Value Chain to Accelerate New Product Introduction

  • A CIMdata Commentary:
  • Upchain maintains a persistent record of Why, How, and What decisions were made, and by Whom. Usually enterprise systems that maintain the single view of truth record What decisions were made and by Whom, but not Why and How. The Why and How remain tribal knowledge among those who participated, which is a risk for the company. Upchain blends enterprise governance with P2P collaboration to seamlessly capture and store the How, What, and Whom of complex product innovation.
