Consulting and research firm CIMdata, Inc. has announced its 2010 PLM Vendor Forum schedule and program. These one-day events will be held in Ann Arbor, Mich., USA, on March 25, in Stuttgart, Germany on April 15, and in Tokyo, Japan on April 21, 2010.
CIMdata’s 2010 PLM Vendor Forum will provide insights on the impact of the current economic climate and trends on PLM solution suppliers competing in an increasingly challenging market. CIMdata’s perspective on the state and trends of the current and future PLM market will be presented, as well as its perspective on 2009 PLM market results—including market growth and forecasts across PLM domains, industries, and regions, and the performance of PLM solution suppliers.
Discussion of two expansion areas—Social Networking and Compliance—will be presented to illustrate how they are accelerating the recovery and bringing new opportunities to the PLM market.
“Social networking is changing how users work the product development process,” said Ed Miller, president of CIMdata. “These technologies are impacting the PLM solutions that companies need to deploy and that vendors need to provide.”
