ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Dec. 13, 2013 - PRLog -- CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM consulting and research firm announces its international 2014 PLM Market & Industry Forum schedule and program. Now in their twenty-fourth year, these one-day events will be held in Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA on April 3, 2014; Bad Homburg, Germany (near Frankfurt) on April 8, 2014; Shanghai, China on April 11, 2014; and Tokyo, Japan on April 16, 2014.

CIMdata’s 2014 PLM Market & Industry Forum is the premier industry event series designed exclusively for PLM solution and service providers of all sizes. During the forum events, attendees will collectively explore the issues currently facing the PLM market. Presentations will offer insights into the current economic climate, leading trends, and their effects on the PLM economy. There will be a detailed look at the state and trends of current and future PLM markets, and the first public release of CIMdata’s 2013 PLM market analysis results—including extensive analyses and forecasts of market growth across PLM domains, industries, and regions; and the performance (revenue and market-share analysis) of leading PLM solution providers.

The overall theme for this year’s event is “Moving Towards a Circular Economy,” and will focus on what happens after a product has reached the end of its intended lifecycle. Additional presentations will consider several topics of interest and relate them to the move towards a circular economy. Presentations will include “System of Systems: Way Beyond the Product,” examining some of the ways Systems Engineering can support the circular economy; “Simulation’s Role in the Circular Economy,” considering the critical supporting role simulation will have in validating new requirements; and “PLM: Well Beyond Just PDM,” which will use CIMdata research to show how leading industrial companies are looking to enable a more complete PLM strategy. The remainder of the day will offer a series of end-user-focused topics including: the status of the Cloud, an update on mobile applications in PLM, and the death of the file.

Participants in CIMdata’s PLM Market & Industry Forum should expect to gain a solid understanding of the current and emerging PLM market, of the dynamics impacting it, and of expectations for its continued evolution. Attendees will gain further insights into opportunities and approaches they can use to navigate the PLM economy in the year to come. CIMdata’s PLM Market & Industry Forum also provides an opportunity to network with other professionals in the PLM community, including competitors, collaborators, and potential partners.
