CIMdata 2016 PLM Market & Industry India Forum “It’s a Material(s) World: This Changes Everything”


Date: April 11th 2016                Location: Courtyard by Marriott, Pune City Central

CIMdata ( and Brainwave Consulting ( are co-sponsoring India’s second CIMdata PLM Market & Industry Forum, the leading event exclusively for solution and services providers in the PLM global economy. This year’s Forum will provide insights on the current economic climate and trends and examine their effects on the global PLM economy, focusing on CIMdata’s perspective on the current state of the PLM market and trends for the future will be presented in detail, as will the first public release of CIMdata’s 2015 PLM market analysis results—including extensive analyses and forecasts regarding market growth across PLM domains, industries, and regions, and the performance (by revenue and market-share) of leading PLM solution and service providers.

Participants in CIMdata’s PLM Market & Industry Forum will gain a solid understanding of the current global PLM market and the dynamics impacting it, and develop realistic expectations for continued market evolution. Attendees will also gain insights into opportunities they can exploit and approaches they can use to navigate the global PLM market environment in the year to come, with specific focus on the three leading PLM global markets—the North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific. Time will also be dedicated to describe specific emerging markets for PLM, including India, China, Brazil, and Russia.

Who Should Attend?

  • PLM software solution providers
  • Non-PLM enterprise solution providers
  • PLM systems integrators
  • Value-added resellers
  • Analyst relations specialists
  • Marketing and competitive analysis professionals
  • Channel partners
  • Anyone involved in helping end users succeed in their PLM journey

Why Should I Attend?

  • You will be part of the industry’s first look at CIMdata’s analysis of the 2015 PLM economy
  • You will see the bigger picture on the current state of the PLM economy
  • You will understand what is driving the PLM economy
  • You will join like-minded peers in stimulating discussions about the PLM economy
  • You will find out how your company performs relative to others in the PLM economy
  • You will learn about emerging trends impacting the PLM economy

PLM professionals from PLM solution and service providers wishing to better understand the global PLM economy and the state of PLM and the main trends driving its adoption and evolution, focus their company’s service and solution strategies and plans, and compete successfully in the global and/or specific regional markets. Additionally, this event is open to industrial company PLM strategists and program managers who wish to gain a better understanding of the state of PLM and the main trends driving its adoption and evolution.

Throughout history we have seen that adding something to the materials mix typically moves society from one state to another. With each change, ways of working and building have been forced to adapt. More importantly, the introduction of a new material has often allowed us to build things that could not be contemplated using the previous generation of materials.

Some would argue that we are in the Information Age, which has brought us the tools, techniques, and processes in product lifecycle management (PLM) that support the way we define, design, engineer, produce, and support a wide range of products.

Engineers learned how to encode mathematics and physics in analytical programs that can predict how things might work in the real world to a high degree of accuracy. Materials handbooks summarize this information, so that engineers and designers can pick materials with a high degree of confidence, and design components that would function as predicted.

The emergence of “new” materials like plastics, ceramics, and composites required the development of new methods, analytics, testing, and other skills to ensure that these materials could function as required in current or new applications.

Additive manufacturing or 3D printing (3DP), is spawning a renaissance of materials and manufacturing capabilities that can potentially change everything. New materials are being engineered that have specific properties to serve new applications for manufacturing using 3DP. But will they have the desired properties?

This changes everything, AGAIN, and the PLM Economy must respond to help industrial companies optimize their adoption and use of new materials and their associated design, manufacture, and support processes.

Plan to be part of this important, industry shaping, conversation by joining your peers in the PLM Community at one of our 2016 Forum events.

CIMdata’s 2016 PLM Market & Industry Forum, the leading event designed exclusively for solution and services providers in the PLM economy, is a key deliverable for our PLM Community members.
