The road mapping process

  • Get synergy on what our product offerings are
  • Define “feature sets” of various versions of product offerings within 3 year horizon
  • Define Development and Research milestones to contribute to these feature sets
  • Define linkages between, research milestones, development milestones and product offering versions
  • Define a set of tasks to reach each of the above milestones
  • Define what we will be doing this year
