Where do Enovia and PLM fit in Dassault Systèmes’ 3DExperience strategy? As I posted in Dassault Systèmes PLM Vision 2014+, DS is “moving beyond the core of PLM.” Many of their existing manufacturing customers, particularly in Engineering, may not find a reason to care. Some might even be concerned that DS has lost focus on…
What I learned this week … is that the time has come for Tech-Clarity to start talking about PLM in the Cloud. Why now? Because there are some real options for manufacturers to consider, and it has moved from a theoretical discussion to a practical one. So without further ado, let’s get the discussion going….
I had a chance to talk with…the Dassault Systemes team about their recent V6R2010 product release. They reinforced their key messages during the conversation: SOA based on a single data model, powered by ENOVIA, leveraging 3D as a media. They also continue to speak of PLM 2.0, referring to the maturation of PLM from an engineering workgroup application to an value chain wide new product development and launch platform. I agree with this assertion – PLM has evolved in recent years to include the front end of innovation, product portfolio management, and direct materials sourcing; I always believed these were aspects of the PLM footprint, but organizations still approached each aspect of the product lifecycle in a siloed fashion. Now with this release, these tenets are accessible to the SMB market as well.
