Ann Arbor, MI, February 18, 2016 --( CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm announces that it has entered into a strategic alliance with Shanghai-based ZXLearning, a leading provider of multi-level professional services training. This alliance will help make it easier for PLM professionals in the greater China region, which encompasses mainland China, Hong Kong, Macao, and Taiwan, to take advantage of CIMdata’s globally acclaimed PLM Leadership Certificate Program. The program is recognized as the PLM industry’s most comprehensive solution-agnostic education offering.

ZXLearning will offer a 2-day standard program to be delivered by their in-house training faculty and a 2-day advanced program to be delivered by CIMdata’s own experts.
