We start this episode by poking some fun at old software disguised as cloud. Then, Jim Brown interviews Excellims Corporation’s VP of Engineering Mark Osgood who shares his experience outgrowing spreadsheets for managing product lifecycles, finding PLM systems cost prohibitive, and then implementing a “cloud” PLM solution that wasn’t truly cloud, with poor results. Then hes implemented a native cloud PLM solution. The differences in performance is dramatic.

PLM411_EP13_thumbNext Episode:In this episode of PLM411, Tech-Clarity’s Jim Brown discusses the PLM evolution at Suretank with Barry Woods, Systems Project Manager. Barry shares that Suretank had very traditional goals for PLM, primarily revision management and getting data under control. That was a success, but new management arrived and shifted company focus to World Class Customer Care. Suretank leveraged the flexibility of their PLM system to implement new capabilities aligned with the revised corporate strategy and ended up with huge business benefits. Barry shares they have continued plans to improve performance with PLM.
