Another reality is that most of CAD-based PLM vendors’ revenues still come from their CAD businesses (over two thirds of revenue). On the other hand, SAP’s 8,000 PLM customers on paper make it the PLM market leader. Some PLM market-sizing firms such as CIMdata put SAP and Oracle amid the Top 5 PLM providers (based on their PLM revenues). But the skeptic in us asks how many total active (maintenance) PLM seats Read More

Surely, Q2O functionality will eventually be subsumed by ERP,  customer relationship management (CRM) , or  product lifecycle management (PLM)  vendors (e.g., Consona ’s acquisition of Configure Solutions ), but the need for such solutions and their market potential is here to stay. The next frontier for Q2O solutions would be verticalization (e.g., Q2O offerings tailored for Read More

Generally speaking, Web 2.0 technology is the major enabler of social product development. More specifically, in 2010, I would like to see the following Read More
