How we can help

For some, “PLM” is a technology, for others it is a collection of IT-supported business processes.

Whatever your view, Cambashi provides market data, analysis and forward-looking analysis and opinion that supports planning, marketing and strategic decision-making.

The PLM landscape is continually changing driven by technology developments and ever increasing demands on cost, efficiency and regulation.

Vendors are wondering:

  • how the cloud, mobility, big data and the Internet of Things (IoT) will affect the reach of PLM?
