ANN ARBOR, MI, Feb 20, 2018 – CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces that its president, Peter Bilello, will make a presentation at PI PLMx Hamburg entitled, “PLM’s Place Within an Enterprise Application Architecture.” PI PLMx Hamburg will take place at the Grand Elysée Hotel, Hamburg, Germany on February 19-20. Mr. Bilello’s presentation will take place during the afternoon of day 2 of the conference, on February 20.

Like other applications, a product lifecycle management (PLM) solution can and should play a major role in an enterprise’s overall application architecture. It is critical that an organization understands the role PLM should play within its application architecture, and what processes are and should be within its scope.

At the core, an enterprise’s application architecture should be governed by the organization’s Business Platform that defines and manages the organization’s business regulations and legal requirements, mission statement, core values and beliefs, and strategic business plan. That Business Platform also needs to provide oversight and governance, as well as enable the organization’s enterprise innovation management processes through which it determines where and when it will focus its innovation resources.

In general, input into an enterprise application architecture (EAA) is from an organization’s suppliers and the output is to its customers. In the middle are the functions that the enterprise needs to perform to create value. This presentation will investigate this important topic, as well as describe a comprehensive EAA model and PLM’s place within it.

Mr. Bilello has more than 26 years of experience in the development of business-enabling IT solutions for research, engineering, and manufacturing organizations worldwide. He has participated in PLM analysis, selection, implementation, and training; CAD/CAM/CAE/CIM implementation and management; synchronous and lean manufacturing consulting; software engineering; and general data management strategy development and support. He has authored numerous papers and research reports on PLM and related topics, and his articles, commentaries, and perspectives have appeared in publications throughout the Americas, Europe, and Asia.
