Do any of the following statements sound a little too familiar?
  • Our current PLM solutions are siloed and difficult to integrate with other systems.
  • Our PLM solution is used by hardware engineers and no one else.
  • Our processes have changed but our PLM is too inflexible to adapt.
  • It’s difficult to bring customers and partners into the product innovation process.
  • Our young engineers can’t stand the old UI and lack of mobility in our PLM system.

While the cloud has transformed most enterprise application categories, the majority of PLM systems used today are decades-old technology. It has only been in the last several years that a new generation of PLM has evolved that embraces the latest cloud technologies. The ability to build PLM and other enterprise applications on cloud platforms, such as the Salesforce App Cloud, enables tight integration and collaboration during the ideation and product development process with internal and external partners, including customers.

In addition to advances in cloud technology, there’s a strong push from the always-connected Millennial workforce to work and communicate 24/7 and use the latest technologies. To address these new requirements, PLM solutions must support a wide range of use cases and user types, asking for new, innovative ways to collaborate. PLM processes can now extend beyond BOMs and change orders to open new ways to think about the product record and how to provide a better user experience and higher satisfaction to customers.

At this webinar you will learn
  • How cloud technologies have improved the latest generation of PLM systems
  • How cloud platforms enable integration and collaboration within internal groups, external partners, and directly to the customers
  • What is a product innovation platform is and how it supports PLM
  • What the Millennial workforce demands and why it should matter to the older generations
  • How new cloud PLM solutions can foster improved customer participation throughout the entire product lifecycle

Join us for this webinar if you want to:
  • Stay current on the latest PLM technologies and capabilities
  • Improve communication and collaboration with customers and partners
  • Learn how PLM can be used as a platform to extend and/or enhance other initiatives
  • Start preparations on replacing outdated PLM systems
Who should attend?
  • Product managers and innovation leaders
  • PLM program managers, directors
  • Enterprise and IT architects
  • Senior engineers and engineering management
  • Senior IT leaders and management
  • Anyone else who wants to learn more about how to enable a PLM platform

During the webinar you’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions about the topics discussed.
