Recap: German Polarion Autumn Meeting 2020

By Florian Götz

On November 19th, 2020 it was that time again, Siemens Industry Software GmbH and the Polarion working group of the PLM User Group e.V. invited to the first virtual Polarion conference. With over 500 registrations in total, we had a great day by exchanging knowledge, experience and ideas.

New ways – a new experience – new ideas

The conference offered a professional network of the Polarion user group and Siemens Polarion employees with many opportunities for exchange and collaboration.

The current times also require new ways of communication, therefore  part of the event in the workshops in the afternoon was carried out in a new virtual 3D learning and working environment from Siemens.
