UGS Connection Americas 2008 is now...Siemens PLM Connection Americas 2008
face it: users have been through a lot over the years, and the
engineering software tools we use have continued to progress and get
better and better. Along the way, mergers and acquisitions will happen
in the ever changing software industry.
early 2007, Siemens AG announced the acquisition of UGS Corp. It was
announced that the business would go to market as UGS PLM Software, a
global division of the Siemens Automation and Drives (A&D) Group.
For our 2007 conference, it made sense to continue the conference as
“UGS Connection” to reflect the heritage UGS name. What may be unknown
to most casual conference attendees is: as soon as one conference
ends...the planning begins right away for the next year. For 2008 event
planning purposes...PLM World once again adopted the “UGS Connection”
During the year, the “UGS” name was phased out and replaced with
“Siemens PLM Software”. We had a decision to make: as we get close to
our conference and start to finalize on printed graphics, signage and
the web site, do we just stick with what we started with our decide to
stay current? In the end, we decided to keep in sync and update our
name to reflect the new "Siemens PLM Software" name.
