CIMdata to Host Free Webinar on Cloud and SaaS Adoption in PLM on Feb 11, 11AM EST
ANN ARBOR, MI, USA, Jan 21, 2021 – CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces an upcoming free educational webinar, “Research on Cloud/SaaS Adoption in PLM.” The webinar will take place on Thursday, February 11, at 11:00 a.m. (EST) and last for one hour.
In many leading companies, legacy product lifecycle management (PLM) implementations have been installed on-site with implementation delays, customizations, and challenges to maintain and adapt to changing business requirements. In smaller companies, PLM is primarily ad-hoc, using Microsoft Excel and shared file services in support of product development. For both, the product development processes are found lacking and unable to support the agility requirements of business today. Many companies are looking to address these requirements using software-as-a-service (SaaS) PLM offerings often delivered using cloud infrastructure.
In late 2020, CIMdata kicked off collaborative research on the adoption of such PLM offerings. Our partners in this research effort include Aras, Dassault Systèmes, PTC, and Siemens Digital Industries Software. The research will help answer vital questions about industrial companies’ on-going and planned SaaS-related PLM efforts. It will consider the extent of the business benefits, the challenges overcome, the satisfaction level relative to expectations, and the impact of SaaS on organizational success. This webinar will share some insights into the findings of this research program.
This webinar will help attendees:
- Understand more about PLM software adoption at industrial companies.
- Gain a better understanding of others’ strategies around digital thread/digital twin.
- Get additional data points to help guide their PLM journey.
According to webinar host Stan Przybylinski, “CIMdata is pleased to work with some of the leading PLM solution providers on this important topic. Companies are looking to the cloud to help meet their lifecycle objectives, and this study will help them understand how companies like them are pursuing that same objective.”
Mr. Przybylinski has over 30 years of experience developing business-enabling IT solutions for research, engineering, and manufacturing organizations worldwide. He has worked in R&D, marketing, and communications with both Fortune 100 companies and small organizations. Stan is responsible for CIMdata’s research agenda, including the CIMdata PLM Market Analysis Report series. He has been directly involved with the selection, consulting, integration, and implementation of large-scale PLM solutions and has worked on projects for both PLM solution providers and end-user organizations in the automotive, aerospace, consumer packaged goods, high-tech, and medical devices industries. He has spoken on PLM-related topics in Europe, North America, and Asia.
This webinar will be useful to PLM practitioners, solution providers, and anyone interested in learning more about this topic.
During the webinar, attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions about the topics discussed.
