Peter Thorne is Managing Director, Cambashi, IT/PLM Industry Analysts & Consultants based in Cambridge, England. I had first met Peter almost 20 years ago in Cambridge when he was a manager with the Siemens software team in Cambridge and I was the product manager for Parasolid in Cambridge. I met Peter in Scottsdale during the COFES2010 conference rin April 2010. Peter in his capacity as the managing director of Cambashi consults with many customers, and has unique insight into European companies, and their challenges and priorities.
Peter was kind of enough to sit down for this interview. He believes the next big opportunity is to integrate Requirements Management, System Engineering and product development into a seamless process.
