new blog - 10 thing you need to stop saying because you sound like #PLM #marketing robot http://beyondplm.com/2016/08/26/10-thing-need-stop-saying-sound-like-plm-marketing-robot/
The old joke says you can take any word from a terminological lexicon of manufacturing company and turn it into enterprise software. Just add “management” word… Product portfolio (management), Engineering change (management), Engineering document (management), Cost (management), Quality (management), Material requirement (management), etc… The reason for that is simple.

“Single version of truth” is one of the most popular paradigm developed by PLM vendors for the last 10-15 years. The concept is loved by many companies and it has many powerful points. At the same time, the devil is in details and wrong implementation strategy can diminish the value of...

new blog - Digital distribution and product lifecycle http://beyondplm.com/2016/08/18/digital-distribution-product-lifecycle/
Digital environment is changing habits and behaviors of people and businesses. Last month I was sharing my thoughts how digital transformation can reshape boundaries between PLM, ERP and MES. The vision of digital transformation requires from PLM vendors to have a full control over the integrated product data in a...

After few years of the intensive sprint to support cloud technologies, major PLM vendors are happy to report – yes, we are on the cloud. While the most commonly asked question is “what cloud?”, the answer you usually can hear from vendors is simple – any cloud, just pick one....

New blog - What PLM vendors can learn about openness from web search http://beyondplm.com/2016/08/25/plm-vendors-can-learn-openness-implementation-search-vendors/
Manufacturing companies are speaking about the necessity for openness. You can learn it from Steven Vettermann’s article – Ready for openness. You can read the following passages quoting Daimler and Mercedes-Benz IT executives: No one can live shut off from the rest of the world any more. Openness is crucial....

One of the main words your learn when you want to build new technology or software product is “different”. Many systems are claiming they are new or different, but in fact these systems are barely an improvement to existing systems. The second thing you learn called “inertia”. Change is hard for...

new blog - The challenges of Product Lifecycle Monitoring http://beyondplm.com/2016/08/17/product-lifecycle-monitoring/
Collecting data is a pervasive trend these days. 20 years ago people smiled when Google founders promised to index internet. Google knew that Internet is very big. How big? The first Google index in 1998 already had 26 million pages and by 2000 the Google index reached the one billion mark....

new blog - Is it a time to change “PLM for SMB” mantra and call it “efficient PLM”? http://beyondplm.com/2016/08/15/time-rethink-plm-smb-buzzword/
PLM was born as a strategy and technology for large organizations. These manufacturing companies supposed to have enough resources and pay for expensive PLM licenses. From that standpoint, PLM was a typical example of enterprise software sold to large customers. For many years, it was an absolutely normal thing – complex...

new blog post: Developers, no-code workflows and PLM platforms http://beyondplm.com/2016/08/12/developers-no-code-workflows-cloud-plm-platforms/
Flexibility was one of the key elements always demanded by engineering and manufacturing applications. The diversity of requirements is high and therefore without enough flexibility you have hard time to accomplish a goal to tailor CAD, PDM or PLM system to the needs of a specific user. Flexibility usually comes...
