    WhichPLM Annual Review 2013 Front Cover In 2013, WhichPLM published our second official 'Annual Review'. This publication followed our extremely successful Annual Review 2012. Not only were the twelve months covered in this report exceptionally busy in terms of core industry events and software developments, they also saw rather significant, tectonic shake-ups to the PLM landscape - from the top down.

     

    Most importantly, 2012/13 was the year in which the power, where PLM is concerned, transitioned from the marketing departments of vendors around the world into the hands of the customers.
