Webinar - Connected, Scalable PLM and AR Put Digital Transformation within Reach
Digital transformation has allowed businesses not just to survive the changing work environment but to thrive in it.

Digital transformation is not a single, massive deployment, but rather an ongoing journey and fundamental shift in a company’s culture that is attainable for organizations of all sizes. It is the preparedness to adapt to constantly changing and emerging technologies by building a seamless and unified digital foundation that allows for collaboration across all enterprise functions and all stages of product development and lifecycle. The result is to remain competitive in a landscape that shifts around us. Without that agility, companies will stagnate and be left behind.

We have seen real evidence of this in the current work environment: organizations that had already begun their digital transformation before the pandemic were better prepared to quickly adapt to remote, dispersed teams. Those that did not are now evaluating and making plans to quickly implement transformative technologies. Demand for critical foundational technologies like enterprise-wide connectivity and augmented reality continues to grow as organizations evaluate how they’ll position themselves to thrive post-crisis.

Watch Novo PLM, PTC, and other industry experts in this exclusive virtual event. Here is a bit of what we’ll discuss in this webinar:

  • How combining connected, centralized, and scalable PLM and AR tools along with a best-in-class strategy can drive success
  • What factors you should consider when planning your own digitalization strategy
  • How top companies have leveraged these tools and methods to improve team productivity, product quality, and time to market
  • How PLM enables a universal, consolidated view of all product data, while an integrated AR fosters collaboration across all enterprise functions in today’s landscape of dispersed engineering and manufacturing teams

Plus, we’ll hear from a company who has undertaken their own digital transformation journey and discuss their challenges, outcomes, and impacts on their business.
