CM2 Certification Courses

Creating Ecosystem Excellence with Integrated Agility

CM2 is the global enterprise standard for change and configuration management. CM2 provides a comprehensive methodology for managing the configuration of a product, system, and/or service throughout its life.

When we think of an organization's processes and data, we traditionally think of them as a simple tool or step in the system that helps an organization accomplish a goal. With CM2 we challenge that concept. 

A corporation's data is so much more than a simple tool. It’s the organization’s CM2 Digital DNA: the foundational building blocks that allow you to leverage institutional knowledge, optimize current product offerings and conceptualize the products of tomorrow with complete end-to-end ecosystem traceability.

The terms Digital Thread and Digital Twin have been a favorite of industry over the last several years. What exactly is the Digital Thread? What is the Digital Twin, and how do we get there?

CM2 DNA End-to-End Ecosystem Traceability
Think of the Digital Thread as the digital connective tissue between enterprise disciplines and datasets akin to the building blocks of a DNA strand. Individually they each tell part of the story from a different perspective and with a different focus. But connected together they become far more powerful. They build upon one another to create a product or project...a Digital Twin.  

Thus allowing an organization to work initiatives and challenges tactically with confidence that the scope of the change is understood not only at its current point in the lifecycle but with an understanding of downstream implications to ensure the decisions being made address the full lifecycle of the product.

Drawing from IpX’s experience, we believe breakthrough business process improvement outcomes are achieved by holistically addressing the interoperability of your organization's people, processes, systems, and data.

Technology enables process change, but desirable business improvement outcomes cannot be achieved without organizational changes. Ultimately, people must be inspired, empowered, and engaged.
