CIMdata’s Collaborative Innovation & Product Development Workshop is a must-attend event for industrial organizations and solution and service providers involved with open innovation, new product development, and ensuring Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and social technology solutions meet business expectations. It provides independent education and a collaborative networking environment where ideas, trends, experiences, and relationships critical to these topics germinate and take root.
The theme for this workshop is The New Age of Collaboration, Innovation, and Product Development.
With rapid advances in digital technology and hyper-connectivity around the globe, the early 21st century has all the signs of a transitional time with no clear pathway to the future. Complexity is increasing as familiar boundaries are being altered forever and information is growing exponentially. While PLM has been embraced by many as a successful business strategy and more recently has emerged as a platform for innovation, significant challenges remain. Companies want to embed business processes with intelligent workflows in the tools to help easily identify experts, get close to customers, collaborate externally with partners, and reduce operational cycles with better internal collaboration, yet they struggle with strategic, cultural, and technology questions.
This workshop will focus on creating insights into the following questions that were voiced in previous workshops:
At this workshop you will hear real world examples of how mature companies are inventing and adopting new collaborative partnership models for innovation and joint value creation. You will be exposed to various examples of partnering and co-creation. Participants should also expect to gain a solid understanding of trends in social and traditional collaboration technologies for innovation and product development. This will be a lively forum where participants are encouraged to discuss real issues, share their experiences and insights into these issues, and have their voices heard and opinions count in shaping CIMdata’s research agenda. This event provides a forum to network with professionals from diverse industries and CIMdata’s subject matter experts. There will be plenty of time for open (and private) discussions.
CIMdata’s PLM Benefits Appraisal Guide is designed to help potential PLM users evaluate the applicability and payoffs of PLM in their enterprise, and to help existing users of PLM monitor the impact it is having on their product programs.
