In a recent survey conducted by Bain & Company , two-thirds of executives at companies generating over $100 million in revenue named innovation as one of their top three priorities.

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.

This has changed in version 10 (as described in the new TEC Certification Report ), which not only offers an above-average level of support for all modules, but also surpasses the average product in the PLM industry by a large margin. In order to assess the capabilities of PTC Windchill, we first need to define an average solution by using data about real software products available on the PLM market. To this end, we assign nume Read More

Glossary of Enterprise Applications Terminology Part Two: Just-in-Time to Extensible Markup Language

Salesforce.com Wants to Help You Transition to a Customer Company


Coincidentally or not, my industry analyst career started at about the same time that salesforce.com was founded, back in 1999. And boy, has the vocal cloud software company had an amazing transition over the years—once dismissed as a fad-like niche sales force automation (SFA) vendor with glorified contact management capabilities, salesforce.com is now a $3 billion (USD) enterprise software

ideation   salesforce.com already has an ideation product, from the Kenlet acquisition in 2007, whose original product CrispyNews has been used at Salesforce IdeaExchange, and is now called Salesforce Ideas . Generally speaking, while companies can provide apps that are customer focused, the rest of the enterprise must be able to align with this new strategy. Some manufacturing companies have, for example, put in advanced planning and scheduling (APS) solutions, but all too often the central enterprise resource Read More

Selecting PLM Software Solutions Part 4 - Comparing 3 Vendors


In PLM, there is no single vendor that can meet all of the requirements, and the market is still immature, so almost every product can be the right solution provided a certain set of requirements. In this part of the article we review 3 vendors who offer products to the PLM market - IDe, Thetis, and PDMware - as a demonstration that selecting the appropriate solution is highly dependant on the prioritized needs of the business.

ideation  Management, Portfolio Management and Ideation & Requirements become more important, and design related functions such as PDM and design tools become less important. This indicates that those clients whose businesses rely heavily on managing the new product development and commercialization processes, but don't require strong engineering and PDM tools, will want to be sure to include IDe in their technology selection. The graph below indicates the contribution to the weighted average for each vendor across Read More

“Act Vertical” vs. “Go Extinct” Retailers - Part 2


Part 1 of this blog series set the historical background for the supply chain management (SCM) evolution and presented the advantages and shortcomings of vertical vs. horizontal integration. The analysis then moved onto the generally embattled retail sector, where a select group of innovative retailers has found a “happy medium” approach to stay well above the fray. Retailers such as PetSmart Inc.

To put all this into perspective, retailers have traditionally competed either on customer experience or product uniqueness. Strategies have ranged from the extreme of competing on price (or convenience) via ubiquitous products (where the customer experience is a mere transaction) to the other extreme of differentiating on a breakthrough offering that engages Read More

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 strategic degree. However, not all PLM products are created equal, especially in light of their different origins. My post then explored the strengths and weaknesses of the first group of PLM solutions: those coming from

ideation  fuzzy: do PPM and ideation, both modules of PLM, count as a full-fledged PLM user? SAP’s PLM revenue includes much PPM revenue: as many as 500 or so customers in our estimates that use PPM in their IT, R&D, and marketing departments. Moreover, SAP PLM is a part of SAP ERP—the best example is the SAP PLM 7.01 version, which is also called SAP Enhancement Pack 5 for SAP ERP 6.0 . SAP likely allocates a percentage of its ERP deals, as well as a percentage of the maintenance revenue, to PLM licenses. To Read More
