A CIMdata Dossier: PLM Platformization

PLM is fast approaching and in some cases achieving the status of a business platform. PLM-as-a-platform, or the platformization of PLM, has evolved out of the need for innovation throughout the product lifecycle.The need for innovation has never been greater and the implications for developing new products and managing their lifecycles are endless. The combination of scarce resources and globalization are driving an upheaval in innovation and lifecycle management. Innovation is more than ever key to enterprise sustainability; solution providers are building their PLM-platform business models around that insight. No enterprise can afford to miss out on the competitive advantages that are presented with the implementation and proper use of a product innovation platform.

For more information take a look at CIMdata's Dossier on this topic.
