Many types of enterprise software workloads are moving to cloud-based solutions. But available data suggests that applications like enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), and some other segments, are moving to the cloud much faster than product lifecycle management (PLM) implementations. In an effort to help solution and service providers and their industrial customers to speed this transition CIMdata is undertaking research to gain an understanding of these differences. In this live webinar CIMdata will frame the problem, talk about the state of PLM offerings on the cloud, and discuss the drivers for and the impediments to cloud-based PLM implementation. The webinar will also act as a call to action for responses to CIMdata’s global survey that will help the PLM economy better understand this phenomenon.
