PROSTEP is increasing the pace of development of its PLM integration platform OpenPDM and will in future deliver a new release every six months. Version 9.2 will be on the roadmap at the beginning of February 2021. In addition to support for the current releases of the PLM systems Windchill, Teamcenter and 3DEXPERIENCE, it offers new connectors to GIT, Jira and to OSLC-enabled systems.
OpenPDM 9.2 is the second release of the new generation of our world-leading PLM integration platform, which is characterized by its cloud-ready software architecture. The new version not only offers connectors to Windchill 12.0.0, Teamcenter 13.0 or 3DEXPERIENCE R2021X, but now also supports the REST interface of Dassault Systèmes’ PLM platform. Via this interface, OpenPDM can now communicate very easily with a cloud instance of 3DEXPERIENCE. In addition, we have developed a direct coupling to EXALEAD based on OpenPDM, so that data from Windchill, Teamcenter or SAP can be evaluated with EXALEAD.
We have also enhanced OpenPDM 9.2 with a view to integrating systems for managing software code and controlling the software development process (Application Lifecycle Management or ALM for short). There are new connectors to GIT and Jira. Furthermore, we have ported the existing connector to the ALM solution PTC Integrity, now called Windchill RV&S, to the new OpenPDM generation. Our connector to the IoT platform ThingWorx offers the possibility to also display data from non-PTC systems with PTC Navigate.
OpenPDM 9.2 supports new data linking concepts through an OSLC provider. It enables OSLC consumers such as IBM RTC or DOORS Next to link requirements and functional models via OpenPDM with PLM information in other source systems.
The new version of our cloud-enabled PLM integration platform will be delivered to our customers from February 2021. In addition, they will receive a Feature Enhancement and Fix Pack for the current release every two months, which contains features requested at short notice in the projects.
