CIMdata Publishes Product Innovation Aras PLM Platform Assessment eBook
ANN ARBOR, MI, USA, Sep 7, 2017 – CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic consulting and research firm, released a new eBook focused on an assessment of how well the Aras PLM Platform meets the requirements of CIMdata’s Product Innovation Platform.
This eBook describes how the Aras PLM Platform stacks up against CIMdata’s Product Innovation Platform requirements. The platform measurements are categorized into Strategic Imperatives and Foundational Characteristics. Measurement scores and how the Aras product is differentiated are included in the eBook.
A Product Innovation Platform is the next generation architecture need to enable Product Lifecycle Management. As product complexity grows, legacy tools struggle to support enterprise needs. Complexity comes in many forms but the most common is the expansion of electronics and software being incorporated to enable smart, connected products. In addition, closed loop processes such as linking field service data and as maintained configurations with product designs to enable IoT require a different enterprise solution approach from the traditional functional silos.
According to Mr. Tom Gill, PLM Enterprise Value & Integration Knowledge Council Manager, “Aras has been talking with CIMdata since we introduced the Product Innovation Platform concept and we were thrilled when they asked to be assessed against our model. We are pleased with Aras’ performance and recommend you read the eBook to understand the detail of the assessment.”
