CIMdata ranks CONTACT Software among the world’s leading PLM providers

The renowned consulting and market research company CIMdata has published its annual report on the global PLM market. CONTACT Software is listed as one of the top international technology providers.

CIMdata's analyses have long been a valuable source of information for the industry when it comes to the global PLM market. The international consulting and market research company publishes annual reports that attract worldwide attention. They offer a well-founded overview of technological trends, the development of sales and the current leading software providers - each graded according to different market segments.

According to CIMdata, CONTACT Software is one of the providers driving the PLM market with its products and services and addressing the current challenges of the industry with comprehensive solutions. CONTACT's open, modular low-code platform Elements and the CIM Database PLM modules based on it, which companies can combine flexibly, are leading the way here.

When comparing providers, the analysts divide the PLM market into three main segments: software manufacturers that cover the entire spectrum of collaborative product development (collaborative Product Definition Management, cPDm), tools (CAx, simulation, etc.) and digital manufacturing. CONTACT Software takes a top spot in the first category. The key CIMdata criteria here are“…core cPDm functional capabilities, often including broad suites of technologies as well as consulting and implementation services focused on providing full solutions to address major industry problems for their customers.”
