Are you involved in an Enterprise-wide PLM Initiative at your company?

If so, plan to join your peers to discuss all the key topics and more at our upcoming PLM Enterprise Value & Integration workshop.


CIMdata’s PLM Enterprise Value & Integration Workshop: The Politics of Enterprise Software: Getting and Keeping Support for a Sustainable PLM Initiative, is the must-attend event for industrial organizations and solution providers who are interested in the importance and value of an enterprise-based PLM initiative. It will provide attendees with independent experiences from industrial companies and a collaborative networking environment where ideas, trends, experiences, and relationships critical to the industry germinate and take root.

This workshop is designed to help PLM leaders and program managers communicate the importance and value of an enterprise-based product lifecycle management (PLM) framework that obtains and maintains the necessary executive support to ensure the appropriate funding, staffing, and attention required to create and sustain a PLM ecosystem that supports corporate business objectives.

The theme of this one-day workshop is The Politics of Enterprise Software: Getting and Keeping Support for a Sustainable PLM Initiative.

At this workshop you will learn more about:

  • How to make your executives say YES to your PLM initiative.
  • The key activities and deliverables that keep an initiative moving forward.
  • Ways to effectively describe and present a PLM program to different stakeholders.
  • How Return on Investment can be used to support a PLM program justification.
  • What to do when a PLM program “goes off the rails.”
  • Proven remedies to issues experienced by other companies implementing PLM.

What to Expect If You Attend

Participants in this workshop should expect to gain a solid understanding of current best practices and the work that is being undertaken. At this workshop you will experience a lively forum in which to discuss the real issues. You will also have the opportunity to have your voice heard and get answers to your questions and concerns. This event also provides the chance to network with other professionals, CIMdata’s subject matter experts, and members of the CIMdata PLM Enterprise Value and Integration Knowledge Council. There will be plenty of time for open (and private) discussions.
