Is there Value Consolidating CAD? If so, how about the Entire Design Suite?

A quick peek into some research on consolidating engineering / design suites. The report, Issue in Focus: Consolidating Design Software: Extending Value Beyond 3D CAD Consolidation extends prior Tech-Clarity research on the business value of consolidating CAD systems. That report, Consolidating CAD: Benefits of a Unified CAD Strategy, focused primarily on consolidating mechanical CAD. This
