PTC Windchill Version 9 versus Version 10: Is Version 10 the Most Significant Windchill Release in PTC’s History?


The latest iteration of PTC Windchill (v. 10) for product lifecycle management (PLM) has been described as ‘the most significant Windchill release in PTC’s history.’ In his article, TEC research analyst Gabriel Gheorghiu compares the last two versions of PTC Windchill, and outlines how the functionality enhancements in PTC Windchill 10 make the product suitable for product creation, development, and lifecycle management.

A Semi-open Source Vendor Discusses Market Trends


A response to trends in the open source software market comes this time from relative newcomer provider xTuple. This vendor’s footprint isn’t entirely in the open source door, however, with OpenMFG, its commercially licensed solution with an open source infrastructure.

Welcome to ERP - Distribution Showdown! Epicor Enterprise vs. JDA Supply Chain Planning & Optimization Suite vs. Pronto Xi


I'm Larry Blitz, editor of Technology Evaluation Centers’ (TEC) Vendor Showdown series. Welcome to our latest: ERP - Distribution Showdown. You’ll notice this one has a broader focus than Showdowns we’ve done in the past. Again we’ll be comparing three vendor solutions head-to-head, but not just on functionality. This time we’ll also look at the industries these solutions support, how well they cover different portions of the mid-market segment, and how their installed bases break out geographically. Of course, functionality is again a key component of this Showdown, broken down into four main distribution areas and 13 subareas. We hope you find today’s Showdown helpful and informative, and invite your comments and questions at showdown@technologyevaluation.com.
