Aras Innovator 10 PLM Platform Is Out

Aras, an established product lifecycle management (PLM) software provider, recently announced the general availability of Aras Innovator 10. The latest release provides a new level of PLM platform scalability for enterprises with global supply chains (requirements for large, extended enterprise user counts and rapidly growing data sets), and introduces an HTML5 browser-based user interface (UI), which makes PLM more accessible for business users.
The vendor is touting Aras Innovator 10 as lean, scalable, and modern. For example, the new roles-based HTML5 Web browser interface promotes a more consumer-like user experience, which is becoming a must for PLM users (not yet for graphics-rich CAD users).
Other technology enhancements enable mobile application development and simplify cloud deployment. You can see a demo of Aras Innovator 10 here; additional details are available here.
The open source PLM vendor currently has nearly 500 paying customers and 100 employees. There are still only very few cloud PLM customers (not a huge demand yet), but many prospects are interested in subscription pricing. Companies with an active Aras subscription receive free upgrades regardless of the amount of customization in their current deployment. This flexibility to change the system can be credited to the system having been developed with more modern tools and concepts than used by its traditional PLM competitors.
