Description

Description

The low-hanging fruit—also known as a quick win—is an improvement that is visible, has early benefit, and can be implemented quickly after commencement of the project. It’s imperative at the beginning of projects to look for the low-hanging fruit in your cloud solution to show a return early. Picking a low-hanging fruit means early delivery, which retains stakeholder interest—and this, in turn, encourages buy-in, adoption, and subsequent subscription renewals. This class will look at the criteria for the low-hanging fruit, and investigate the benefit of starting with a quick win. We will keep the class interactive with a lot of participant engagement. This session features PLM 360 (now Fusion Lifecycle) and Fusion Lifecycle.

Saoirse Colgan

Based in Dublin, Saoirse Colgan has disciplines in mechanical engineering and mathematics with a master’s degree in project management. Colgan is currently working her way through a master’s in data analytics. She’s keen to apply this additional learning to customer data interrogation in order to achieve valuable insights into their strengths and weaknesses. Before joining Autodesk, Inc., in 2013, Colgan led the global roll out of Autodesk PLM 360 software (now known as Fusion Lifecycle software) at Suretank, a company with a strong footprint in the oil and gas industry. This was a challenging multisite rollout, yet the company was successful in achieving early adoption, and delivered qualitative key performance indicators, which enabled the customer to make more informed business decisions. Day to day, Colgan enjoys working with customers to identify both their process requirements and their reporting requirements, and to translate these technically to build a powerful solution that the customer can maintain.
