When it comes to getting product lifecycle management (PLM) systems up and working, Solution Consultant Mark Andres has managed both on-premise ‘big box’ PLM as well as cloud PLM implementations.

For over 40 years, my father was a Chicago Bears season ticket holder. He was in the stands at Wrigley Field when the Bears beat the New York Giants to win the 1963 championship. He saw Gale Sayers race up and down a muddy field, scoring six touchdowns in a single game against the San Francisco 49ers. He watched Dick Butkus, the greatest middle linebacker in NFL history, brutalize opposing offenses. And, of course, he watched Walter Payton, aka ‘Sweetness’, break rushing records.
