CIMdata Online Polls

CIMdata is now featuring online polls with real time reporting on our web site at Each week the results of the previous poll will be included in the CIMdata PLM Industry Summary to help you stay on top of trends in the PLM industry.

Take a moment to visit the site and vote on our current poll.

The results for the last opinion poll are:

What we learn from this poll is that more companies are planning on maintaining or increasing their PLM activities in 2012 than not; by far - nearly 80% versus 21%.  This is very good news on two counts.  First, it suggests that PLM strategies are in place at most companies, and that those companies continue to invest. Second, it indicates that the economy for companies using PLM continues to improve as they are continuing to commit resources to their PLM initiatives.  CIMdata's recent release of the PLM market numbers (PLM supplier revenues) for 2011 supports this as well, showing growth in the key comprehensive PLM space in excess of 15%, well above CIMdata's own market growth expectations.  For more information please visit

NOTE: The results of these polls are anecdotal, not scientific.
