PROLIM is a provider of PLM services including consulting, implementation, training and support ranging from quality management process to project and document management, BOM management, CAD integration and is responsible for P & L, Strategic Planning, Business Development, Client Management, and overseeing Global Operations. We have helped many global organizations to transform engineering IT beyond just plain PDM.

PLM in India is at its Infancy. Many organizations are unaware of the fact that PLM is absolutely crucial to building competitive advantage and needs to become an organizational imperative. Optimistically though most automotive, defense, aerospace, heavy engineering, CPG companies have good handle on PLM with most basic things on the checklist ticked.

By leveraging knowledge and expertise, we are able to provide end-to-end PLM advisory and implementation services in the design/build/support/maintain product lifecycle domains that define the manufacturing enterprise and strategic support on customized PLM system, business process transformation and improvement with expertise in large-scale PLM technology deployments for all of the leading PLM software solutions.

I believe that organizations should leverage PLM to speed up their product development by implementing a PLM system that enables companies both large and small benefit by simplifying and shortening each phase of the product development process. Businesses can take advantage of the full capabilities of a PLM environment and implement the philosophy of PLM, by keeping in mind the business benefits that come with it in quick time to market /lower compliance risks/reduced costs/better productivity/accelerate revenue growth/ increased innovation/enhance product quality.

Technology Trends Impacting Enterprise Business Environment

In today's highly competitive global environment, companies are looking for opportunities to minimize costs, increase efficiencies and gain competitive advantage. Business leaders across all industries are focused on IT as a way to accomplish these goals. That's the reason every product manufacturing business requires a well planned and executed PLM solution to significantly improve efficiency and effectiveness. PLM has shown great benefits in large industries as an efficiency promoting model for complex, manufactured products. Owing to the large benefits that come with it, PLM solutions are now being quickly adopted in other industries such as consumer packaged goods, pharmaceuticals, industrial goods, and many more. Some technology trends which will have significant impact on enterprise business environment are public cloud infrastructure, digital delivery for product and services, data picturing, pervasive computing, cloud, and cyber security.

As of today, PLM has been witnessing a significant growth, despite the few downfalls. PLM is no longer confined to the verticals of automotive, aerospace and defense etc. but has moved beyond to embrace the process industries and construction too.

PROLIM has raised the bar to a new high by providing a best services portfolio that includes: PLM roadmap, PLM implementation, software development, administration, data migration, ERP integration, system integration, training, seminars, workshops and ongoing support which includes production support of related services.

We aim at providing optimized PLM software and PLM Implementation services to help enhance efficiency and top-line growth, backed by Siemens Teamcenter platform. Clients can benefit from global domain expertise, combined with Siemens industry-leading PLM software technology. Effectively managing PLM initiatives is vital to success. He believes that PLM Program Managers are uniquely qualified to help companies initiate and drive PLM initiatives forward while also addressing key challenges. This approach includes seamlessly combining project management skills with deep engineering, product development and PLM industry expertise.

Closing the gap between marketing requirements and IT capabilities requires a culture of collaboration in which the CXO and CIO work towards a set of agreed-upon goals that factor in both marketing and IT interests. Nowadays Companies are in the process of developing PLM solutions for industry verticals in nontraditional areas to expand their footprints in these un-touched areas. To conclude I say we have to make sure that IT organization is focused on delivering great customer service in a responsive and timely manner.
