The New Age of Collaboration, Innovation, and Product Development

Workshop: Oct 7 - 8 / Louisville, Kentucky

This exclusive session, hosted by CIMdata, features keynote presentations, interactive discussions, tour of the cutting-edge First Build Microfactory, and networking dinner! Speakers include First Build's Taylor Dawson, BASF's Dr. Svetlana Dimovski, and Local Motors. CIMdata’s Collaborative Innovation & Product Development Workshop is a must-attend event for industrial organizations and solution and service providers involved with open innovation, new product development, and ensuring Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and social technology solutions meet business expectations. It provides independent education and a collaborative networking environment where ideas, trends, experiences, and relationships critical to these topics germinate and take root. The theme for this workshop is The New Age of Collaboration, Innovation, and Product Development.  With rapid advances in digital technology and hyper-connectivity around the globe, the early 21st century has all the signs of a transitional time with no clear pathway to the future. Complexity is increasing as familiar boundaries are being altered forever and information is growing exponentially. While PLM has been embraced by many as a successful business strategy and more recently has emerged as a platform for innovation, significant challenges remain. Companies want to embed business processes with intelligent workflows in the tools to help easily identify experts, get close to customers, collaborate externally with partners, and reduce operational cycles with better internal collaboration, yet they struggle with strategic, cultural, and technology questions. This workshop will focus on creating insights into the following questions that were voiced in previous workshops: * How to balance openness and speed with security and protection of intellectual property (IP)?
