CIMdata’s President, Peter Bilello, to Present at Configit’s CLM Summit in October

The presentation will explain the challenges and opportunities of implementing an end-to-end configuration management solution.

ANN ARBOR, Michigan, 31 August 2017—CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces that its President, Peter Bilello, will make a presentation at Configit’s CLM Summit entitled “Configuration Management — An Extended Enterprise Discipline.” The CLM Summit will take place at the Hilton Cocoa Beach Ocean Front on October 23-25.

Historically, many companies have considered configuration management to be a narrowly focused discipline—a discipline that primarily focused on data management during product development and release to manufacturing. However, to fully enable the strategic business approach that product lifecycle management requires, companies must look at solutions that enable end-to-end configuration management capabilities, not only from a product development perspective, but also from a business perspective. In this presentation, Mr. Bilello will discuss the challenges and opportunities of implementing an end-to-end configuration management solution and why it is critical to a company’s success.

Mr. Bilello has more than 27 years of experience in the development of business-enabling IT solutions for research, engineering, and manufacturing organizations worldwide. He has participated in PLM analysis, selection, implementation, and training; CAD/CAM/CAE/CIM implementation and management; synchronous and lean manufacturing consulting; software engineering; and general data management strategy development and support. He has authored numerous papers and research reports on PLM and related topics, and his articles, commentaries, and perspectives have appeared in publications throughout the Americas, Europe, and Asia.
