Oracle MSCE 2016 Recap

Last week at the San Jose Convention center, we pulled together more than 400 PLM professionals with the Oracle MSCE conference.  The energy and passion for PLM was amazing.  The conference is always a high point in the year where Oracle and our customers can spend time together.  Conversations vary from people just starting their PLM journey to many who have been with Agile PLM for many years. 

For the Agile PLM product, we had 6 great sessions focused on different aspects of Design integration into PLM, also known as Engineering Collaboration (EC).  Three customers, Qualcomm, Specialized, and Pella, spoke about how EC integrations impacted their business.  We also had presentations from Perception on AgileEXPLORER and xPLM on new dynamic document authoring tools.  We also presented on Design File Release with Agile PLM 9.3.5 and EC MCAD 3.5, along with AutoVue for Agile PLM 21.0.0.  For EC devotees, the conversation continued into Thursday with a 3 hour workshop on EC and AutoVue. 

Cloud was another area of significant focus.  Discussion of Cloud included the hybrid cloud model with Cloud Innovation Management (IM) working with Agile PLM, as well as the pure PLM Cloud offering of IM, Product Development, Projects, and Product Hub.  All of our customers are evaluating Cloud opportunities to improve user acceptance of, and to change the financial costs of, enterprise software deployments.  This conference provided a huge opportunity to discover more about the Oracle PLM offering and roadmap to the Cloud.  As Devendra Singh presented in the Cloud Roadmap Session, Oracle is committed to release new versions of Agile PLM for the next many years as the Oracle on premise PLM solution.  Cloud IM already integrates directly to Agile PLM to offer additional use cases that solve deep Product Innovation problems. 

The conference also featured an amazing set of customer speakers in other sessions.  These additional speakers represented Beachbody for PLM for Process, Otterbox, Harris, Ichor Systems, CooperVision, Cisco, ThermoFisher Scientific, NBTY, Dell, and Lilly.  I have worked with many of these customers over the years, sometimes to solve problems, sometimes to plan how to better use PLM.  Over all this time, these customers have partnered with Agile Software and now Oracle to deliver exceptional functionality to their users that delivers significant business value.  Agile PLM and Cloud PLM deliver value by being flexible, modular, and fast.  Our customers implement key processes, build trust and success, then are able to tackle the next problem. 

Thank you to our customers.  Thank you to our partners.  We had a robust partner presence at the conference.  These partners provide amazing rapid value during the different phases of deployments and operation of PLM systems.  Hopefully everyone had a chance to talk to our partners and learn more about what they do to help you deliver value from your PLM systems. 

If you were not able to come this year, I hope you consider coming out next year.  We had workshops on Monday and Thursday.  Partners offered training on Monday.  The MSCE conference now spans 4 days.  If you look at the fees to attend other technology or process conferences, I think you will find that MSCE is extremely cheap to attend.  MSCE gives you and your PLM professionals a huge opportunity to connect and learn.  For those who did attend, please let us know how to get better.  Please fill out the surveys.  We are listening and want to do more.  Presentations from the conference are available on the MSCE 2016 Website.  For our European counterparts, London MSCE is kicking off today.

As a final plug, here is the link to our Agile PLM knowledge blog post: http://bit.ly/knowagileplm.  This post offers links to additional resources and information about TOIs.

Thanks everyone!
