Free Webinar From CIMdata

On the importance of data governance in the development of complex products

Published: Monday, August 7, 2023 - 12:01

(CIMdata: Ann Arbor, MI) -- CIMdata, a global product life-cycle management (PLM) consulting and research firm, has announced an free educational webinar, “Complex Product Development Demands Data Governance.” The webinar will take place on Thurs., Aug. 10, 2023, at 11 a.m. Eastern and will last for one hour.

Companies developing complex products containing embedded software face increasing pressures for innovation, maturity, coordination, and time to market. Historically in mass production companies, important data items are managed in PLM, which caters to mechanical and electrical engineering for products and their factories. Application life-cycle development management (ALM) tools cater to software and systems engineering, mapping features to customer requirements. Development pressure fosters thinking and acting in discipline and domain silos, worsening data sharing and knowledge exchanges. More than ever, it is important that ALM and PLM cooperate. Consistency is needed in the terms and language used for products; that is where data governance comes in.

This webinar will consider what drives data-governance needs within a complex product development environment.

Attendees at this webinar will:
• Learn why data governance is needed now
• Understand what drives data-governance needs within a complex product development organization
• Understand what it takes to secure executive buy-in for data governance
• Understand data governance’s value proposition

According to Janie Gurley, CIMdata data-governance practice director and host for this webinar, “Companies developing complex products with embedded software face increasing pressures to innovate, ensure product maturity, coordinate effectively, and expedite time to market. Data governance plays a vital role in facilitating harmonious integration and establishing consistency in terms and language used for products.”

Anyone responsible for data governance and/or product development will find this webinar interesting.
