By Justin DiNunzio

As we enter the new year, it’s time to start thinking about the future of Product Lifecycle Management software.

Here are my top 5 predictions for what we can expect to see in 2023, and how these updates will shape the way we work and collaborate on projects.

1. Increased adoption of cloud-based PLM โ›…

Cloud-based PLM solutions will continue to grow in popularity due to their cost-effectiveness and accessibility. More companies will make the switch to cloud-based PLM, particularly smaller companies that may not have the resources to invest in on-premises systems.
