CAD-Centric PLM, ERP-Centric PLM, and Organic PLM: What’s Right for You? - Part 2
Part 1 of this blog series started with the assertion that product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions are becoming increasingly important to enterprises, to a

cad source  to boot. While buying CAD and PLM software from the same supplier has its benefits in theory (i.e., best integration, contract volume discounts, one source of support, etc.), there are other important considerations to take into account, including the best PLM capabilities, the best ERP integration, specific industry support and savvy, etc. Ironically, a “whole enchilada” system by a single ERP-PLM provider might require higher costs and time to implement or upgrade as compared to implementing Read More...

Being an exclusively Microsoft-based product may be another factor that keeps some potential customers away from adopting Aras Innovator. I’m sure that Aras has made extensive evaluation to ensure that Microsoft technologies meet the technical requirements of supporting its customers. However, I would argue that the elimination of other operating systems and databases will cost Aras opportunities—some organizations may want to Read More...

The same is true for the CRM capabilities, which are still thin on the sales force automation (SFA) and marketing automation fronts. The vendor openly admits a poor fit for most engineer-to-order (ETO; see ERP Systems and the ETO Manufacturing Market ) and job shop environments. Some configure-to-order (CTO) environments too might currently be a tall order (too much to expect) for OpenMFG (see The Essential Read More...

These three vendors now provide both PLM tools and cPDm solutions, and hold almost a half of the total PLM market revenue (data source: AMR) [1] . The reason for the strength of these CAD-PLM vendors is obvious—they all started from CAD and developed cPDm solutions along the way by Read More...
