I found the following “device” in my mail box today- Google Apps Saving Calculator.The Out-Of-The-Box functionality is damn simple. You select number of people in the organization on the top and see how much $$$ you are going to save when you move to Google Apps. There is also Google Enterprise Apps website.
You can call it completely marketing or crazy. Nevertheless, it made me think again about simplicity and PLM. Current PLM systems and environment are very dependable on many pre-requisites, characteristics, options, etc. At the same time, PLM became mature in many organizations. Don’t you think it is a right time to come with some Bayesian prediction about what PLM can save?
Time to think… what is your opinion?
