Do any of the following statements sound a little too familiar?
  • There is a lot of fear associated with the idea of putting our IP in the cloud.

  • Terminology regarding PLM platforms and the cloud is confusing.

  • Perceptions exist that cloud offerings lack features, scalability, and security.

  • The cost impacts of cloud vs. on-premise are not well understood.

By virtue of the entrepreneurial spirit of high tech companies, and the growth of new ventures, along with new divestitures, the topic of managing IP in the cloud is frequently brought to the table. Unfortunately, almost as frequently, the topic is dismissed in part due to the fear, uncertainty, and doubt (FUD) associated with the cloud. This webinar will discuss what the perceptions of the cloud are, the business value of PLM in the cloud, and the special considerations you should factor into your PLM and cloud discussions. The goal is to enable businesses to be better informed and more proactive in their dialogs regarding the use of the cloud as an environment for managing IP.
