A PLM journey using the cloud - a customer's perspective

Come see how real manufacturers have begun using cloud-based PLM to get up and running quickly with minimal cost and complexity – but not without challenges.  This session reveals both the promise and ‘pain points’ of achieving PLM, such as:

  • Simpler installation and deployment as compared to traditional ‘on-premise’ solutions
  • PLM information shared quickly and easily with employees, suppliers and customers
  • Fast integration of existing business systems into the overall PLM solution
  • Challenges managing people, culture and information when adopting PLM
