Patrick Dunfey

VP of Marketing and Alliances , Anark Corporation

Patrick has always been drawn to the next transformative technology trend. As the Vice President of Marketing and Alliances at Anark, he focuses on customer-centric programs that help manufacturers innovate faster with next generation content collaboration solutions that support everything from supplier collaboration to advanced manufacturing to AR/VR application development. For too long, manufacturers have made collaboration trade-offs between unwieldly, legacy product lifecycle applications and insecure communication tools like email and file sharing, that lack true collaboration and don’t understand technical product data. Content collaboration platforms and email are overdue for some disruption. Finally, manufacturers have a content collaboration platform that understands their business, their product data, and how the modern workforce gets work done. Patrick spent the early part of his career as a mechanical engineer and has over 20 years of enterprise software expertise, with specialties in CAD, PLM, ERP, AR/VR and IoT. He has met with over 1000 companies, ranging from SMB to Fortune 100, to help bridge the gap between technology and real value. Anark is a leading provider of technical content collaboration software, empowering manufacturers such as Boeing, General Electric, Lockheed Martin, Schaeffler, Ericsson, Cohu, Cisco, and the U.S. Department of Defense to redefine the boundaries of collaboration so they can innovate faster. By making product data accessible and actionable, manufacturers and their suppliers reduce errors, scrap, rework, and delivery risk while producing higher-quality products and services.

PL1817I - Turn Suppliers into Innovation Centers with Anark Collaborate for Windchill

It’s time to redefine collaboration and innovate faster! For too long, manufacturers have made trade-offs by using generic content collaboration platforms or procurement systems for supplier collaboration, with poor results. In this session, learn how to turn procurement and suppliers into innovation centers, regain valuable engineering time to focus on innovation, empower everyone to focus on the work that matters most, and extend the digital thread of Windchill and Creo data to everyone inside and outside your organization. A frictionless supplier collaboration portal for Windchill has arrived with Anark Collaborate. Anark Collaborate connects directly to Windchill and/or Creo, providing a technical content collaboration platform designed for manufacturers and their suppliers.
