    CIMdata Publishes eBooks on Collaborative Research on the Benefits and Challenges of Cloud/SaaS PLM Adoption

    ANN ARBOR, MI, USA, May 14, 2021 – CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces the publication of two new eBooks that summarize the results of a multi-sponsor collaborative research program focused on the business benefits and challenges offered by the adoption of a Software as a Service (SaaS) PLM delivery model. Partners in this research effort included PTC and three other leading PLM solution providers.

    In many leading companies, legacy PLM implementations have often been installed on-site and often experience implementation delays due to complex installation requirements. Over time, heavy customizations can also be challenging to maintain and adapt to changing business requirements. In smaller companies, PLM is often ad-hoc, primarily using Microsoft Excel and shared file services in support of product development. For both, the product development processes are found lacking, unable to support the agility requirements of business today.

    This collaborative research program focused on helping answer vital questions about industrial companies’ ongoing and planned Cloud/SaaS-related PLM efforts. The eBooks highlight the issues faced by industrial companies looking to make this move and includes sponsor information about how they are addressing these issues, including customer vignettes and links to more information.

    According to Mr. Stan Przybylinski, CIMdata’s Vice President and leader of CIMdata’s research program, “In our 2017 cloud study, about one-third of the participants believed they would move to the cloud in the next two years. If our respondents to this new survey are representative of the broader population, nearly 30% have already made the move, and 86% of our respondents either already moved, plan to move in the near future, or have strongly investigated their options. This result agrees with our work with our industrial consulting clients and in our interactions with the leading PLM solution and service providers who claim a huge increase in interest and growing adoption. This is great news for the PLM Economy.”

    CIMdata is publishing two eBooks, each highlighting a different part of the PTC’s cloud business. “PTC delivers PLM optimized for all the ways we work with a portfolio that spans on-premises, cloud, and SaaS,” stated Mr. Kevin O’Brien, Division GM of the PLM Segment at PTC. “However, the speed and the level of security at which our customers can deploy Windchill on the PTC Cloud is a gamechanger. We continue to focus our investments ensuring our customers realize the lowest TCO and the best user experience.”
