Digitalization is unlocking newer opportunities for leadership and strategic growth, key to strategic edge in a rapidly changing business world for global enterprises. PLM is increasingly seen as the enabling technology for driving digitalization. However, traditional PLM systems are evolving to keep pace with the changes, challenging enterprises in advancing their PLM strategies for realizing the true potential of digitalization.

Historically, enterprise PLM applications have been designed to support data authoring that serve dedicated user domain but have had minimal impact on consumption of this data & process enablement, that transcend traditional business and IT silos. Further, the focus has been around traditional mechanical led areas and missing the value of connections across the entire product development lifecycle. As manufacturers & their ecosystem have grown both geographically and organizationally, the systems have struggled with constraints impacting quality of collaboration. These changes coupled with significant enhancement in capability and functional coverage by all leading PLM ISV’s, necessitates the need to invest in next generation PLM systems. This investment in next generation PLM is essential to support a flexible and focused business infrastructure capable of driving new business models and responding to market requirements with smart, connected products.

A successful transformation to a next generation PLM will be determined by the ability of enterprises to reimagine their PLM strategies in context of model based enterprise enabling
