The economy many have slowed down, but things just continue to pick up in the corporate community. Companies everywhere are working on saving money, cutting costs, and reducing expenses using Aras. Some companies are replacing their outdated PLM system and modernizing with Aras which eliminates PLM license costs in the process. Others are complementing their existing PLM installation to add new processes and expand access without purchasing more licenses. Whichever approach your company is using, you're saving money and helping the bottom line. You could even wind up getting a promotion!

Now, there's a lot happening in the coming weeks including webcasts and conferences, educational opportunities, tons of training, and much more. Check it out!

EDUCATION - Best Practices Training Options
With the slowing economy many people are making process improvements in their business to reduce costs, improve profitability, and ultimately strengthen competitiveness.

Making changes that have a significant impact requires insight and knowledge of best practices. One of the fastest ways to gain the necessary level of understanding is through education and training.

We think this is important because there is a direct correlation between results achieved and the training attained by those effecting change, and we get asked all the time about education options. That's why we're sharing resources that we know of with everyone in the corporate community so you can get training on best practice approaches that will help your company during the downturn.

There are a number of training courses and certification programs by recognized providers that cover a range of topics include configuration & change management principles, product lifecycle management practices, and more.

Here are some educational resources that we recommend:

Institute of Configuration Management - CMII Configuration Management Training & Certification

Configuration Management Process Improvement Center - CMPIC Configuration Management Training & Certification

CIMdata Global PLM Consulting - PLM Certificate Program
