CIMdata Announces Free Webinar on ‘PLM Solution Evaluation & Selection’ on Aug 12, 11AM EDT

ANN ARBOR, MI, USA, Jul 12, 2021 – CIMdata, Inc., the leading global product lifecycle management strategic management consulting and research firm, announces a free educational webinar, “PLM Solution Evaluation & Selection.” The webinar will take place on Thursday, August 12, at 11:00 a.m. (EDT) and last for one hour.




CIMdata has created a set of detailed guidelines for evaluating available solutions and selecting the most appropriate one to support a company’s defined PLM strategy. When properly followed, these guidelines help an organization reduce the time it takes to select the right solution and provide a documented and objective justification for that selection.

This webinar will provide an overview of PLM solution evaluation and selection best practices and will help attendees:

  1. Understand the main steps an organization should take to evaluate the most appropriate PLM solutions.
  2. How to use a neutral PLM model to define technical requirements.
  3. How to ensure selection of the best PLM solution for your organization.

According to webinar host Janie Gurley, CIMdata’s Practice Manager for Data Governance, “Taking the bias out of a PLM evaluation and selection process and having a proven methodology to follow helps ensure that the most appropriate solution is selected, one that meets the needs of the organization. For organizations that are just starting on their PLM journey or for those who are wondering if they have an opportunity to replace their current PLM solution, this methodology provides the necessary guidance to make the best decision in a short time.”

Ms. Gurley has over 28 years of experience understanding and supporting strategic business execution with broad-based expertise in product development solutions within manufacturing. Besides her responsibilities as the Data Governance Practice Manager at CIMdata, Ms. Gurley is also responsible for managing and executing CIMdata’s services delivered to PLM solution providers, including the coordination and execution of CIMdata’s Community and associated solution provider strategic management consulting activities.

This webinar will interest those involved in a strategic PLM initiative and anyone wanting to learn how a systematic PLM solution evaluation and selection process can reduce the time it takes to select the right solution for their organization.

During the webinar, attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions about the topics discussed.
