Managing Engineering Data: Few Dedicated to Enterprise Systems

This finding reveals the type and frequency of technologies used to manage design and development data.

The Democratization of PLM

Today is a time of dramatic change for software solutions. Larger development organizations, including OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) and suppliers, now have more flexibility than ever when it comes to these technologies. But it is also a time of unprecedented accessibility, with small organizations and startups now feasibly accessing the same technologies that were previously reserved for their larger peers. From top to bottom, it truly is a time of democratization.

Autodesk Adds Data Management to PLM360

In the landscape of PLM solutions, Autodesk’s PLM360 seemed like the rebel. Since its inception, PLM360 has focused on providing capabilities to enable and manage processes, not product data. But in mid September, Autodesk expanded the capabilities of the system to cover one of the most basic sets of PLM functionality: data management. However, they …
