Companies in the automotive, mechanical and plant engineering, shipbuilding and other industries must be able to seamlessly trace data communications with customers and suppliers while at the same time protecting their intellectual property during data transfer.
However, they often shy away from the effort involved in installing and maintaining a suitable managed file transfer (MFT) solution. PROSTEP is now making its OpenDXM GlobalX data exchange platform available in a highly secure cloud environment to facilitate secure data exchange for the largest possible number of users.
Our software-as-a-service (SaaS) model takes account of the fact that the cloud is also becoming increasingly popular in engineering environments. The solution is of particular interest for companies that want to move their data generation and management applications to the cloud but do not want to set up their own IT infrastructure for data exchange. Thanks to standardized interfaces to leading PDM/PLM and ERP systems, OpenDXM GlobalX can also easily be used in hybrid on-premise / cloud scenarios.
As a cloud service, OpenDXM GlobalX minimizes installation and operating effort and can be used practically from the word go. During the initial setup, the system is configured in such a way that all that is left for customers to do is set up their users and data exchange partners. Software updates that maintain the high level of security or make useful new functions available are, of course, included in the price of the cloud service. This means that smaller companies can also enjoy the benefits offered by the world’s leading data exchange solution, such as secure transfer, a high level of availability and end-to-end traceability, at attractive conditions.
