Invest in your people and take advantage of discounts
In this economy budgets are tight and spending limited. PLM Bootcamp requires no travel and your team can huddle around a computer and view sessions together. PLM content is not readily available in the industry press. The content available during the event typically costs thousands of dollars and is delivered by consultants. Events like this one will change the PLM landscape for the industry and should be supported. Invest in your team and see the results. Discounts are available until October 7th.
Prepare to see a “different” PLM
PLM Boot Camp '09 is focused on product lifecycle management (PLM) and has a distinctly vertical concentration – the fashion and consumer products industries. The fashion sector alone counts
over 40 software solutions that serve specific PLM needs. Although the methodology of PLM stays the same, when it comes to applying PLM in the fashion and consumer products industries, business cases, adoption strategies, and functionality priorities
are likely to be different from industries such as aerospace and automotive.The event sessions have been designed to embrace this vertical focus and give event attendees focused and useful content instead of the typical broad approach.
Benefit of the virtual and on demand event format
This is not like a webinar, with slide shows and broadcast sound.
PLM Boot Camp presentations are recorded, edited and transcribed in order to provide attendees with a high quality experience. Although the conference will happen virtually the 8th and 9th of October the event is lifelike: attendees can chat with speakers, exhibitors and other attendees during session breaks. A virtual goody bag provides tools and documents that help PLM selection and adoption and are a great value and included in registration. After the 8th the event is available on demand through the 20th of December.This means you can log in any time and catch sessions
you may have missed. Although the chat will not be available during this time you will be able to view the event up to 4
times. This resolves many of the scheduling issues you may have.
Self serve two days worth of content
With 14 sessions in two days during the live virtual event you should focus on signing up and viewing what matters to you most, you can always add sessions later. The main threads were designed
so you could plan how to spend your time: the first day is strategy-oriented, and the second day is more about implementing PLM systems. Both threads offer a free keynote and 6 sessions. Each session builds on the next for a total PLM curriculum and mirror the steps in PLM selection, adoption, implementation and deployment.
In day 1, the strategy thread, you will be exposed to topics such as PLM adoption strategy, PLM leadership, PLM return on Investment (ROI), and PLM solution selection, etc.
