Together with international customers and partners, CONTACT Software will present from September 14 to 15 under the motto "Shape the sustainable future now!" strategies, technologies and best practices that enable companies to drive forward their digital transformation in a future-proof and sustainable way.
Ecological and social changes are increasing the pressure on industry to transform. Digitization, new business models and the responsible use of resources are more crucial than ever in global competition. At Open World 2022, CONTACT Software will show how companies can develop, manufacture and operate smart products, services and infrastructures - and integrate sustainability in their value creation.
At the two-day conference in Bremen, Germany, renowned customers will provide exclusive insights into their successful digitization strategies based on the CONTACT Elements platform. The keynote from thyssenkrupp Dynamic Components, a leading global automotive supplier, will highlight, in particular, the benefits of data-driven production control in real time. In its keynote, the Norwegian shipbuilding company Ulstein will show how an efficient variant management can contribute to more sustainability.
Another highlight will be the customer presentations focusing on PLM in the cloud, project management, quality and compliance, and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Here, HBC-radiomatic, Kiekert, Mann+Hummel, Manthey, PCI Augsburg, Van Raam and other well-known companies will report on how they are using CONTACT's solutions for end-to-end Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), the smart factory and digital services to successfully master the increasing requirements in their industries.
CONTACT Software opens the Open World 2022 with an outlook on business development and presents its innovation roadmap as well as the company's future strategy. The software company will also be showcasing the latest enhancements to its modular low-code platform Elements and presenting new PLM & IoT applications that support companies on their path to more sustainable business.
These include, for example, a new software module for CIM Database PLM, which enables transparent, quality-assured materials management throughout the company that can be verified at any time. As well as the new ticket system from CONTACT Elements. This app provides service teams with all information on customer inquiries digitally and searchable in one place: from problem description through communication to documentation of the solution.
In addition to practical hands-on workshops on topics such as virtual reality or Universal Classification and an extensive partner exhibition, an inspiring speech by Alfred Prey, manager of the first division ice hockey team Fischtown Penguins, completes the wide range of offerings at this year's Open World. On the day before the event, interested visitors can also take part in a PLM Leadership Workshop by Peter Bilello, CEO of CIMdata.
