Competing on Analytics – Time for PLM based Analytics?

In my opinion PLM vendors currently provide fragmented analytics tools – Most of them address only a very specific section of the addressable market need. Also the problem seems to be compounded by the fact that not only companies implement a closed-loop PLM system thereby making data collection much tougher. PLM vendors should start taking note of the emerging trends (specially the “big data” problem) and start providing value-added analytics products to customers.
