Explore how the industry is responding to the challenge

In today’s digital era, companies are adopting new technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), AR/VR, Model-Based Enterprise (MBE), 3D Printers, and connected tools and applications. These new industrial technologies require connected digital data also known as “digital thread” that runs across Supply Chain Management (SCM), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), and Customer Experience (CX) applications. This results in organizations investing in a new Digital Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution at the core to support everyday business operating models. A successful digital transformation journey starts with right PLM. Thus, PLM is considered the backbone of data and product development management.
