2020.3.31:A Message to CIMdata Family and Friends

Dear CIMdata Family & Friends,

I hope that you and your loved ones are safe and well. For more than 36 years, CIMdata has striven to provide valuable insight that helps our clients, who are based in more than 50 countries around the world. Our intent has been to not only provide value, but also actionable recommendations that allow our clients to not only survive, but to thrive in the rapidly changing and high-connected global economy.

The current and continued impact of COVID-19 is affecting all our lives—our families, our friends, our colleagues, our companies, as well as many of us personally. The impact of this new virus, especially to human life, is upsetting, and for some devastating. Fortunately, humankind is resilient and life as we knew it will return.

While much of how we work today has changed, at least temporarily, business must go on, and CIMdata is here to support you now and well into the future. CIMdata has been a highly distributed company for decades and as a result, we have learned how to deliver value remotely. Many of our services have been constructed with minimal interaction, much of which is well suited for remote collaboration. This means that most of our PLM Success and PLM Transformation consulting services can be delivered today in the same manner as they were being delivered in the past. Additionally, we continue to expand our education and research offerings so that they proactively support today’s rapidly changing dynamics.

Some of the specific items that I wish to bring to your attention are:

  • E-learning opportunities, including the CIMdata PLM Basics course and a soon to be announced virtual PLM Certificate Program.
  • The CIMdata.com knowledge-base, including our weekly PLM Industry Summary, free research papers, video library, webinar library, etc.
  • Educational webinars, which will be increased from one to two webinars per month. For upcoming webinars please check our on-line listing at https://www.cimdata.com/en/education/educational-webinars.
  • Virtual assessments, road mapping, and other strategic services.

I would also like to let you know that CIMdata will be donating 50% of each sale that is made during April from the PLM Basics e-learning course to Food Gatherers, a food bank that is local to CIMdata’s headquarters in Ann Arbor, MI. This organization already helps so many in Ann Arbor and the surrounding area and will need to help far more as this crisis continues to move through our community—it is worthy of our support.

Finally, it is critical for all of us to stay the course and stay connected so that when recovery gains momentum, we are all ready to grow and take advantage of the opportunities available.

Keep well.
