Connected technologies span many industries including high-tech electronics, medical device, apparel, automotive, and health & fitness. To put the “smart” in smart products, manufacturers need to manage the development of software and printed circuit boards more efficiently throughout the product development process. Due to the complexity of connected products, OEMs are moving to the next generation of product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions.
This Technology Spotlight examines the opportunity for manufacturers that are considering the deployment of PLM in a cloud architecture. You’ll discover why many companies are moving to the next generation of Cloud PLM solutions. The reasons include:
- Product complexity, driven by the Internet of Things (IoT)
- Global expansion and competition
- The need to collaborate more efficiently throughout the product development lifecycle
- Mass customization and personalization of products
Is the move to cloud-based PLM a market evolution or revolution? Read this IDC Technology Spotlight to learn more.
