In today’s world the term “reduction in time-to-market”, with respect to placing a product on the market, is used extensively with little overall benefit to the manufacturer. But, developments in integrated cloud-based applications introduces significant time savings through the introduction of a Parallel Processing technique.
Compliance testing and certification programs have until now been a well-defined serial process. Through the introduction of parallel processing, time savings of up to 65% in time-to-market are regularly achievable.
