INNOVATION is KEY to enterprise sustainability

Let’s find out together how to take PLM’s next evolutionary step!

For more information on PLM Platformization take a look at CIMdata's web page devoted to PLM Platformization

Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) has emerged as a strategic business approach to support product and process development, enabled by software, technology, and services. CIMdata’s definition of PLM spans from product idea through end-of-life, so PLM has a huge role to play in product, process, services associated with process, and innovation.

Over the last several years, the ideation process has been spectacularly enabled by social technology. Many industrial companies now rely on open innovation with selected individuals or communities, creating their own platforms to make this happen.

What are the hard questions we need to be asking
  • Are existing platforms adequate for supporting this approach?
  • Are new platforms required? 
  • What new skills, solutions, and services will systems integrators and reseller/VARs need to develop, in order to empower their customers to succeed with this new approach?
  • Is this the consumerization of IT hitting PLM? 
  • What will it mean for the wide PLM community of users, for solution and service providers? 
  • What will be the impact on PLM sustainability?

Plan to be part of this important, industry shaping, conversation by joining your peers in the PLM Community at one of our 2015 Forum events. This is your opportunity to help shape how PLM-as-a-Platform will impact the PLM Economy.
