Theme Announced for CIMdata’s PLM Road Map™ EMEA 2018

Now in its 25th year, this event will take place in conjunction with PDT Europe in Stuttgart, Germany in October.

Ann Arbor, Michigan, 12 June 2018—CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, has announced that the theme for PLM Road Map™ EMEA 2018 will be, “Digitalizing Reality—PLM's role in enabling the digital revolution.” This one-day, event will be held in collaboration with PDT Europe at the Le Méridien Hotel, Stuttgart, Germany on October 24-25.

The digital enablement of key business processes is growing rapidly. At times, these developments seem to be moving at warp speed, are difficult to follow and understand, and are even more difficult to integrate into one’s business. New business concepts such as Industrie 4.0, Digital Twins, Additive Manufacturing, and the Internet of Things hold the promise for measurable business value and the companies that embrace them understand that it is possible to digitalize the real world.

In a format that will offer a series of plenary and keynote sessions designed to facilitate conversations between presenters and conference participants, CIMdata’s PLM Road Map EMEA 2018 will use real-life examples of these concepts at work and will demonstrate that PLM is a core enabler of this product-centric digital world.

“CIMdata is committed to delivering high client value with our PLM Road Map conferences and we are excited to once again offer this program in conjunction with PDT Europe,” stated Ms. Cheryl Peck, CIMdata’s Director of Marketing and PLM Road Map Conference Director. “This year’s conference theme is reflective of what we are seeing out in the market,” added Ms. Peck.

PLM Road Map EMEA 2018, in collaboration with PDT Europe 2018, is the must-attend event for PLM industry leaders and PLM practitioners globally—providing independent education and a collaborative networking environment where ideas, trends, experiences, and relationships critical to the industry germinate and take root.
