A few areas I can think of are: PPMLink for product portfolio management: fashion and CPG manufacturers (especially those Read More

The Blessing and Curse of SharePoint's "Grandma's Attic" - Part 1

Notwithstanding Microsoft's recent purchase of Skype, some pundits have started to question its relevance in the long term (in view of the ongoing consumer mobile devices and/or social media success of Apple, Google, Facebook, Oracle, salesforce.com, etc.).

PTC Sees SMBs as “Essential” to Its Business

While opportunities for new or replacement product lifecycle management (PLM) systems at large enterprises are rare, neither is the small to medium business (SMB) market fully exploited. To that end, PTC recently announced the release of PTC Windchill PDM Essentials, the company’s product data management (PDM) software. The product aims to bring concurrent engineering to smaller

After some initial success and traction, some challenges cropped up, maligning ProductPoint—it was quietly done away with last year. The product didn't work for several reasons, but the most important was that even SMBs need lots of Windchill PDM functionality, which it didn't deliver. Also, SharePoint has had some issues with annotations, and it has different document access permissions than Windchill. This functional catch-up game Read More

PLM (Vendors) and Lean Product Development-Part 4: PTC

If you have followed my previous posts of this blog series (Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3), I guess you may have an idea about who will be the third vendor I’m going to discuss concerning the relevance between its product lifecycle management (PLM) offerings and the lean product development (LPD) concept.

PTC Live Global 2013: All About Design for “Servitization” —Part One

This was my third time attending the PTC Live Global (formerly PlanetPTC Live) conference, and by now I can say with some conviction that, compared to its large product lifecycle management (PLM) and computer aided design (CAD) software peers, PTC provides the most inspiring keynote presentations by its top executives and customers.

PLM as a Strategic Weapon: An Underlying PlanetPTC Live 2011 Theme - Part 2

Part 1 of this blog series talked about the major (blockbuster of a sort) announcements at PTC’s PlanetPTC Live 2011 annual user conference, which was held in mid-June 2011 in Las Vegas, Nevada, US.

Gaining Competitive Advantage through Global Product Development

Product development is a mission-critical process. And it can also be very expensive.
