Beth, the idea of being able to interchange information with a variety of systems is an important one.  For engineering and product data this is not a very daunting task.  Tools like Jitterbit are great for easing the integration task.  PLM does not rely on data with complex semantics, as you might have in a high speed transaction or control system.  That makes it a more tractible problem, and brings one closer to the goal of having all the information you need to make product decisions.

Naperlou: You're saying that it's not a difficult task to share engineering and product data with a variety of systems? If so, that's surprising to me and contrary to what I have heard so often from both PLM vendors and PLM practitioners in both engineering and IT.

A core tenet of Autodesk's strategy with its PLM 360 is that the PLM-related applications or services--project management, costing, product portfolio management, engineering change orders, etc.--are cloud-based tools, but the actual product-related data (CAD models, requirements, drawings, etc.) are stored on-premise, in the Vault PDM system. But even if that scenario, it would be critical to sync up to other enterprise systems where data might be stored.
