The cloud holds a lot of promise to help manufacturers reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) of their enterprise applications and engineering tools. It lets them take advantage of economies of scale and shifts costs from capital expenditures to more manageable, operational expense items. It also reduces the load on the internal IT team.



Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) is a great idea, but most companies focus more on the P and L than they do on the M.  There is an old truism that you can’t manage what you can’t see and this is true with PLM as much as any process.  In order to implement PLM processes, a company needs a management framework that is based on metrics and analytics
