Why You Should Attend
Siemens PLM Connection brings together over 2,000 customers, partners, and Siemens representatives for three days of education, networking, and training, offering countless benefits to individuals and companies seeking to expand their knowledge and connect with industry professionals and peers.
PLM software isn’t one-size-fits-all – nor is our event programming. We recognize that people involved in different aspects of their organizations use these products and features in different ways. Many attendees and presentations are outside the traditional “user’s group” scope. It’s common for organizations to send day-to-day users as well as implementation leaders, strategic decision makers, and management. Click here to view the latest agenda.
Programming revolved around three tracks to deliver customized content to each audience.
|Managers and thought leaders focused on improving business processes using best practices and lessons culled from a process, tool and people perspective.|
|User Experience: Users looking to improve their software tool usage efficiency through new techniques, the exploration of additional software capability, and attending specific training classes.|
|Deployment Excellence: IT professionals responsible for the architecture, configuration, performance, and deployment of business-critical systems looking to tackle issues and implement solutions.|
The goal of Siemens PLM Connection is to provide attendees with detailed information that they can apply when making future software/product decisions as well as practical tips they can implement immediately to improve productivity, quality, and/or efficiency.
