Secure data exchange from the Active Workspace client

Darmstadt, January 2022 – PROSTEP AG has begun delivering the new version 9.3 of its data exchange platform OpenDXM GlobalX. It not only makes it easier for system administrators to do their job but also provides greater security thanks to two-factor authentication. PROSTEP has also expanded its extensive range of PDM/PLM integrations to include an integration to the Active Workspace client from Siemens Digital Industries Software. It enables users who don’t work with the Teamcenter PLM system all the time the access to CAD and PLM data, e.g. via any commonly used web browser. The new plug-in also allows them to send the data directly from the Active Workspace client.

OpenDXM GlobalX’s web-based graphical user interface is a success story in which system administrators can now fully participate. With version 9.3, the task of migrating all the administration functions to the new web interface has been brought to a successful close. As part of this migration, the functions were expanded and grouped together in topic-specific panels. The newly created system monitoring dashboard makes it possible for administrators to see at a glance the status of system components, critical processing operations and which licenses are available and which are currently being used. Depending on the permissions they have been granted, they also receive information about the user configurations, the files in the system, the e-mails that have been sent or the processing and approval processes.

OpenDXM GlobalX can be integrated very easily in PDM/PLM landscapes in order to automate complex processes for preparing and sending data. For this purpose, PROSTEP provides standardized integrations to all the leading PDM/PLM systems, such as 3DEXPERIENCE from Dassault Systèmes, PTC Windchill, SAP ECTR or Teamcenter from Siemens Digital Industries Software, and to other enterprise applications. The range of integrations is constantly being updated and expanded. The latest addition is the integration to the Active Workspace client for Teamcenter.
As with all the plug-ins, users work with their client in the usual way, searching for their documents and compiling them into collections for transfer. They use the wizard to start the send operation by selecting the recipient and, if appropriate, entering further information relevant to the transfer. OpenDXM GlobalX executes the processing steps in the background and makes the exported and prepared data available to the recipient. The status of the transfer is reported back to Teamcenter. All the processes are logged in the database of the PLM system for verification purposes.
As product manager Daniel Wiegand points out, PROSTEP has implemented all the customer requirements on the development roadmap for the current year in the new version 9.3. “We have also improved the security mechanisms by integrating two-factor authentication (2FA). It allows access to OpenDXM GlobalX to be made even more secure via a soft token generated with an authentication app.”
