Free registration at

Today’s manufacturing enterprise has watched the cloud hype with skepticism, particularly when it comes to product lifecycle management (PLM). In the face of rising product complexity and cross-discipline product development, many global product development teams find an increasing range of situations in which using the cloud for PLM is an effective approach. These circumstances include supply chain collaboration, joint ventures, connected product design feedback and others that require PLM capabilities outside the scope of existing corporate PLM systems.

The webinar shares how these challenges impact the business of engineering and transform the way multinational companies combine existing PLM environments with the cloud for better results.

Webinar attendees will see first-hand:

  • Market dynamics affecting PLM requirements at global companies
  • Different conditions and circumstances in which the cloud works well with PLM
  • New approaches for using the cloud to address certain challenges

Webinar Presenters:
Jeffrey Hojlo, Program Director of Product Innovation - IDC Manufacturing Insights Simon Floyd, Director of Innovation and PLM Solutions at Microsoft.
