Kalypso and Integware Merge PLM Practices


Kalypso has recently merged with Integware, a fellow consulting firm with expertise in product lifecycle management (PLM), particularly in the life sciences industry. In addition to the life sciences, the merger expands the firms’ presence in the aerospace and defense (A&D), automotive, and energy industries.

Thus, the merger does not necessarily create any channel chaos for those PLM vendors.   Kalypso has done well in the market, in part because the big consulting firms typically lack industry PLM expertise and mainly focus on billing customers with their consulting hours. Kalypso provides industry expertise and is really growing. This merger brings a missing set of skills and seems to be a good fit. Will this merger prompt many more big general management consultancies to Read More

Why PLM Couldn’t Help You During An Economic Downturn?


Shorter time-to-market, higher product development efficiency, better product quality, and lower product costs are often associated with the benefits of adopting product lifecycle management (PLM) systems. When there is an economic downturn, these benefits seem to be more desirable. However, a recent poll (CIMdata Online Polls, presented near the end of CIMdata PLM Industry Summary, 28 May 2010

aras axapta  PLM solutions are expensive (Aras Innovator might be the only exception). However, people do buy expensive things from time to time, as long as the value of the money you spend can be justified. That being said, the price issue is the difficulty of calculating return on investment (ROI) for PLM adoptions. Without a doubt, PLM helps generate quick results, but many other benefits that PLM can bring to the table are not quite directly measureable and can only be seen long after the implementation is Read More

Portals: Necessary But Not Self-sufficient


Having moved beyond its original role as a standalone presentation layer to become a part of a larger technology stack, the portal is now considered part of a larger offering, be it in collaboration, vertical-specific applications, or application infrastructure and middleware.

Now they are pervasive in the business world and used at the departmental and corporate levels. The major, general-purpose Web portals are still Yahoo! , Excite , MSN , Read More

Microsoft 'The Great' Poised To Conquer Mid-Market, Once and Again Part 2: Challenges and User Recommendations


Microsoft's reticence to comment on any timelines of product integration and operations mergers, to our belief, stems from their genuine inability to foresee it at this stage. Still, although the indications that the business will continue to be as usual are strong, Microsoft may eventually decide to streamline its diverse, likely redundant, product mix, staff, and channel. Once Microsoft figures it out and gets a much clearer picture, it should emerge as a mid-market leader making its competitors scramble to better its value proposition.

PTC Creo 3.0—CAD Interoperability


CAD software is changing to make data reusable and collaboratively shared in the customer/supplier’s native format (most commonly 3D CAD formats). At the forefront of these changes is product development software player PTC, and the company’s 3D product design solution Creo, now on its third version, which offers powerful CAD interoperability and design and efficiency improvements.
