PowerPlex 2015 Recap

PowerPlex 2015 was held June 29 – July 1, 2015 in Nashville, Tennessee. Nearly 1,000 members of the Plex community came together to share best practices and learn about the latest capabilities of the Plex Manufacturing Cloud. It was three information-packed days of in-depth learning, idea exchange and peer networking opportunities. We look forward to PowerPlex each year as an annual celebration of our customers and the people who make things. Here are some highlights of the PowerPlex 2015 attendee experience:

  • The introduction of new channels and programs aimed at driving collaborative innovation with you, including Product Advisory Groups and Ideation in the Plex Community.
  • A deeper look at Plex UX, and the flexible transition path for customers to this new and modern platform for the future.
  • The debut of Plex Connect – our open integration framework that enables manufacturers to connect Plex with the applications, people and things in their ecosystem (including packaged connectors offered in partnership with leading cloud providers).
  • More informed, data driven decision-making through Plex Insight.
  • A peek into continued innovation in the Plex Innovation Labs, including what’s new with Google Glass and Apple Watch.
  • Over 70 sessions sharing best practices including six function-based learning tracks and 16 industry and topical peer exchange sessions.
