Sopheon recently participated in a research project led by CIMdata, the leading global PLM consulting and research firm, to develop and socialize a common framework for next-gen innovation management technologies that help industrial companies innovate more effectively and sustainably. By participating in this research we continued our commitment to bringing vision, ideas and solutions that optimize cross-functional collaboration for improved rates of innovation.
Through a series of thought leadership interviews with representatives from sponsoring solution providers and chief innovation executives from leading organizations — including Electrolux, Givaudan, GOJO Industries, Henkel, Honeywell, Procter & Gamble, and Sanofi — CIMdata defined and socialized a common framework of terminology, solution approaches, implementation challenges, and benefits. Through this effort, CIMdata and co-sponsor Sopheon expect companies to become more familiar with enterprise innovation enabling technologies and have more confidence when investing in the next generation of solutions.
“We believe that as a contributor to the evolving EIM space, we have a special responsibility to help companies navigate today’s market changes,” said Huub Rutten, Sopheon’s Vice President of Product Research and Design and co-founder in the press release at the start of this project. “We share CIMdata’s view that a common EIM framework will provide a successful path forward.” Download the research report now.
