LNS Research principal analyst Matthew Littlefield attended our 2012 User Forum last week along with many of IBS's partners, customers and prospective customers. Mr. Littlefield recently blogged about how far-reaching quality has become in the organization - a concept that becomes manifest in Enterprise Quality Management Software (EQMS). By this he means that because quality management touches virtually every business function across the enterprise so too must the software that is used to support it. In his post he elaborates how EQMS is delivering the functionalities needed to centralize, standardize, and streamline quality management across the extended value chain. In particular, he notes how the EQMS from IBS extends beyond quality process management, with a wide range of functions including production quality functions like SPC, unlike many QMS vendors.
