ANN ARBOR, MI, USA and STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Feb 1, 2021 – CIMdata and Eurostep are pleased to announce that PLM Road Map & PDT Spring 2021 will take place in May as a virtual-live event. The conference will address the critical topic of “Disruption—the PLM Professionals’ Exploration of Emerging Technologies that Will Reshape the PLM Value Equation.” The event will take place over two half-day sessions on May 19th and 20th.
PLM Road Map & PDT 2021 represents an event customized to the interests of the PLM Professional. With this in mind, our agenda will offer a mix of reports and case studies from teams of industry experts, covering technologies, processes, and people. PLM Road Map & PDT 2021 will examine various emerging disruptive technologies looking at the value they promise to deliver and why they are disruptive. We will also look at the role of standards in ensuring the openness and interoperability of these technologies. Additionally, we will share some examples of how these technologies are applied in aerospace & defense, automotive, AEC, high-tech, and medical devices industries.
According to CIMdata’s President & CEO, Peter Bilello, “This year’s PLM Road Map & PDT Spring event will be virtual-live for all participants. The event will offer high-value and accessibility to PLM professionals from multiple industries across the globe. Our theme focuses on the elements that are vital to enabling a successful PLM strategy—equipping the PLM Professional with insight on how to get the most out of the people, processes, and technologies that enable PLM.”
“PLM and digitalization go hand in hand. With increasing digitalization and the increasing pace of innovation, disruptive technologies are everywhere,” says Håkan Kårdén, VP Marketing, Eurostep Group. “The challenge today is not the lack of potential disruptors but how and when to study and adopt them. For any PLM Professional, the challenge is how and when to move and play all the cards in a coordinated way. Disruption will not happen unless the technology, people, and processes are in sync. This year, 2021, we look forward to bringing to the PLM community a must-attend event that will present ideas as well as practical advice on how to plan to disrupt and avoid being disrupted,” added Mr. Kårdén.
In addition to the virtual-live event in May, CIMdata and Eurostep plan to host PLM Road Map & PDT Fall 2021 on November 17th and 18th.
