The PLM vendor landscape first started with a group of niche companies that offered a combined hardware/software solution. They persisted up until 'work stations' and improved functionality in the database space arose that killed these vendors off. This gave birth to today's generation of vendors that for the past 5-10 years have really held the PLM fort.
But today, Big Data is about taking the data-based technology underlying Google (Hadoop) and making this available to everyone. The fundamental changes that will follow in how data is collected, processed and ultimately used are pushing these PLM household names into a niche group of their own and it stands to reason that they too will become outdated dinosaurs and become extinct paving the way for the next generation of technology.
