The Many Faces of PLM Part Two: The Future of the PLM Suite


The future of the PLM Suite will include more applications that cover product-related functionality and further expand the benefits available. As the PLM Suite matures, companies will benefit from increased functionality and increased integration between business processes. The ultimate expression of this more mature solution will result in a broad suite of focused, integrated applications that leverage a core of unified, structured product data - the PLM Platform.

SFA is still a core component within the overall suite of CRM products, and it also served as the catalyst that got the market moving. PLM seems to be following the same pattern. Software suites naturally grow as suite providers add new products to their offerings, and specialty vendors with complementary value propositions look to take advantage of the marketing awareness that the suite Read More

Meeting Configure One at PlanetPTC Live 2011


My recent attendance of the PlanetPTC Live 2011 event was a great learning experience.
