Integration is the Name of the Game in Software Systems


This article, originally published in Engineering Times, on how companies are employing ERP is based on an interview with Ben Spencer, TEC’s Senior Director of Knowledge Bases and Content Development.

aec  products, the traditionally made-to-order AEC industry is moving toward increased standardization of parts. However, the AEC industry's increasing use of design-build on construction projects is paralleled by the manufacturing world's evolution toward full lifecycle management and maintenance by the original service provider, industry watchers say. In the manufacturing sector, decreasing margins on manufactured products and price competition from globalization are driving this trend, says White. The Read More

Siemens and Bentley Further Their Alliance


In late November 2012, Siemens and Bentley Systems announced a strategic collaboration to integrate digital product design and manufacturing processes design offerings by Siemens PLM Software with information modeling for facilities lifecycle design offerings by Bentley. Initially, the companies will focus on the digital factory for automotive and discrete manufacturing. In other words, the

Enterprise asset management (EAM) is another realm where Siemens has yet to become more involved. To that end, Siemens and Bentley have also identified future endeavors involving Bentley’s AssetWise software for asset lifecycle information management. This scope will also including the newly acquired Ivara EXP asset performance management software that Read More

Bentley Extends Commitment to Siemens PLM Software


The 3D computed-aided design (CAD) world continues to be co-opetitive. Many of the situations where fierce competitors end up using each other’s tools in their competing products are circumstantial, i.e., those products were using tools supplied by a software company before it was acquired by a competitor. For example, the Parasolid 3D geometric modeling kernel was developed

In addition, this endorsement by Bentley should come as a consolation, given the ISO hurdles for JT and Dassault Systèmes’ recent decision to decouple the SolidWorks business logic from Parasolid and to continue with a dual kernel product strategy ( the Parasolid and the CATIA kernels ).

Vendors Jostle and Profess Economic Stimulus Readiness - Part IV


Part I of this series analyzed the opportunities (as well as the related strings attached) stemming from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), a.k.a. the Economic Stimulus Plan. The inspiration came from my attendance of the Deltek Insight 2009 user conference last May, where Deltek decided to fill a market need and interest by convening a separate “track” that was entitled

Vendors Jostle and Profess Economic Stimulus Readiness - Part I


At Deltek’s Insight 2009 user conference last May, the host software vendor did a notable thing. Namely, besides merely putting on an all-too-common multi-day conference chock full of product announcements, functional breakout sessions, and industry best-practice discussions, Deltek decided to fill a market need by convening a separate “track” that was dedicated to

aec  help government contractors and AEC firms in their endeavors to obtain ARRA funds and duly report on them. Your views, comments and opinions, etc. are customarily welcome in the meantime. If you are a recipient of ARRA funds, I would appreciate you sharing your experiences with dealing with federal or local agencies. Read More

Some Belated Insights from, well, Deltek Insight 2010 - Part 2


Part 1 of this blog series started with me lamenting my inability to attend the Deltek Insight 2010 conference. However, I recently had an in-depth post-event recap instead with Deltek’s in-the-know staff members. What then followed in Part 1 were descriptions of the major developments that transpired at Deltek Insight 2010 in terms of already released products and those

All in all, INPUT seems a synergistic extension for Deltek that broadens the vendor’s offerings outside of software, opens up new markets for the company, and enhances the company’s existing applications – especially its evolving CRM applications. Looking Back at Insight 2009 and Forward to Insight 2011 In step with the major topic du jour, Deltek's Insight 2009 conference had a special  American Recovery and Read More

3D Systems to Acquire Geomagic: Set to Capture Market Share of Scan-to-CAD Market


Recently, 3D Systems signed a definitive agreement to acquire Geomagic. Geomagic develops the software that is used for scanning physical objects into 3D data. It also produces 3D metrology and inspection software that compares and verifies the measurements of an actual physical product with its design. This acquisition fits well with the portfolio and offerings of 3D Systems, which is well known

The competition in the Scan-to-CAD space for product development is limited to a handful of software vendors. As the costs for professional grade 3D scanners and 3D printers go down, adoption of both Scan-to-CAD and 3D printing is expected to pick up. Geomagic’s solution is very well suited for manufacturers seeking to reverse Read More
