Stockholm, SWEDEN & Ann Arbor, MI, USA — Yesterday, Eurostep, in partnership with CIMdata, officially announced the dates for the eagerly anticipated PLM Road Map EMEA & PDT 2023 Europe. This major PLM-focused event is slated for November 15-16, 2023, and will be held at the Renaissance Hotel in La Defense, Paris, France.
This year’s conference theme, “The Digital Thread in a Heterogeneous, Extended Enterprise Reality: A Call for PLM Professionals to Share their Knowledge and Experience”, underscores the focus on the exchange of expert insights and professional learning within the PLM community.
Designed with the PLM Professional in mind, the agenda includes a diverse selection of reports and case studies from industry experts. The conference aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of the Digital Thread, its present implications, and future potential for industrial end-user companies.
Presentations will delve into numerous topics around the Digital Thread, including its governance, implementation across a heterogenous IT landscape and extended community, security considerations, and its role in sustainability and a circular economy. Discussions will also examine the impact of Digital Thread on legacy systems and data, its relationship with Configuration Management and Digital Twin, and the potential value or disruption AI or Blockchain might bring.
CIMdata’s President & CEO, Peter Bilello, expressed excitement about the conference’s return to an in-person format after a couple of years of virtual delivery. He stated, “2022 marked the return of the PLM Road Map & PDT conference to an in-person event after two years of virtual delivery. The level of enthusiasm from the PLM Economy was substantial. As evidenced by our successfully executed North American event, 2023 continues to build on that momentum, once again delivering valuable content and accessibility to PLM professionals from multiple industries across the globe. This year’s theme focuses on the elements that are vital to enabling a successful PLM strategy—equipping the PLM Professional with insight on how to get the most out of the people, processes, and technologies that enable a successful PLM environment.”
Echoing Bilello’s sentiment, Håkan Kårdén, co-founder and Marketing Director of Eurostep Group, noted, “PLM Road Map & PDT 2023 will explore how product data is created, re-used, shared, and governed in a true end-to-end process over the product and system life cycle. The right vision, framework, and investments in technology, people, and processes will aid in setting up robust and resilient Digital Threads that also allow businesses to remain flexible and agile—a necessity accentuated by recent years and set to shape the future.”
Given the wealth of learning and networking opportunities the conference promises, PLM Road Map & PDT 2023 is poised to be an essential event for PLM professionals looking to enhance their knowledge and share their experiences.
