CIMdata, a global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, has published a report summarizing the results of a multi-sponsor collaborative research program focused on the business benefits and challenges offered by the adoption of a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) PLM delivery model. Partners in this research effort included Aras, Dassault Systèmes, PTC and Siemens Digital Industries Software.
This collaborative research program focused on helping answer vital questions about industrial companies’ ongoing and planned Cloud/SaaS-related PLM efforts. The report summarizes the analysis of a global survey targeted at industrial companies to highlight the issues they face in looking to make this move.
“In our 2017 cloud study, about one-third of the participants believed they would move to the cloud in the next two years,” says Stan Przybylinski, CIMdata’s vice president and leader of CIMdata’s research program. “If our respondents to this new survey are representative of the broader population, nearly 30% have already made the move and 86% of our respondents either already moved, plan to move in the near future, or have strongly investigated their options.
“This result agrees with our work with our industrial consulting clients and our interactions with the leading PLM solution providers who claim huge increases in interest and growing adoption,” Przybylinski says. “This is great news for the PLM Economy.”
