Presenting: The Challenge of PLM Upgrades as We See the Rules of Business Change
24 Feb 2015, 11:30
Companies that implemented PLM 10+ years ago are facing massive issues when upgrading their systems to modern PLM platforms. PLM has changed from an engineering and document-centric system towards a data-centric vision and infrastructure to enhance collaboration and better support the product lifecycle globally.
This session will examine whether we are really just talking about an upgrade or whether we are in fact looking at an entirely different potential approach.
- Why does the classical document management approach not work in today's more connected world?
- Are the newer iterations of existing PLM platforms changing this model of working?
- What will the data-centric approach mean for and demand from your organization?
- As we move further into a connected world and the cloud, how will this help support your transition?
