Analyst Event Reporting

By Dora Smith


Our executives are presenting to a small group of analysts today and tomorrow. Firms represented include: Aberdeen, AMR, ARC, Cambashi, CIMdata, CPDA, Cyon, Gartner, IDC, Manufacturing Insights and Tech-Clarity.


This morning at breakfast I was talking with a few to find out what they get out of an event like this. These analysts are briefed throughout the year on our products. But they told me annual events like this are key to bringing it all together.

The two key takeaways for them are our roadmap and customer application stories.

On the roadmap side they are looking for our long-term product plans. These analysts advise large customers on PLM and IT investments. So it’s important for them to know where we and our competitors are headed with our software so they can help their customers plan. On the customer application stories, they are looking for real-world use cases that help them understand successful technology deployments.

I’ll be talking more with them and our execs at the breaks, so let me know what questions you have for these folks.
