Aras, the leader in open product lifecycle management (PLM) for the enterprise, today announced Marc Lind, SVP of Strategy at Aras, will discuss the Digital Thread as a critical outcome of digital transformation at the PLM Leaders Panel at PI PLMx Chicago 2018, taking place on November 5-6, 2018 in Chicago, IL.

PI PLMx is North America’s only independent event dedicated to the advancement of tools and processes for product lifecycle management. The event focuses on the evolution of PLM from data management to a center for strategic intelligence and insight. The agenda has three tracks that include enabling collaboration, supporting the digital value chain, and realizing the service lifecycle.

The PLM Leaders Panel brings together industry leaders who are driving innovation in PLM to share their visions of the industry, explore PLM as a hub for an integrated value chain, and challenge each other’s views on technology trends. Mr. Lind will discuss the importance of the Digital Thread to drive productivity gains, improved response to customer feedback, and product innovation to open new market opportunity. Audience members are encouraged to engage the panelists and add to the conversation. The panel will take place on Day 2 at 2:10 pm in Room 1.

In addition to taking a taking part in the PLM Leaders Panel, Aras is proud to sponsor this event as we support Product Innovation’s goal to advance tools and processes for PLM.
