Last year, PROSTEP introduced the first connector that connects the 3DEXPERIENCE cloud to OpenPDM, thus allowing engineering data and ERP data to be linked via the integration platform. PROSTEP has continued to develop the connector and now additional data objects can be exchanged and geometry information can be made available in native or neutral formats.
PROSTEP’s PLM integration platform OpenPDM can be used in hybrid cloud scenarios since version 9.0. In the future, we will also offer it as an integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS). In close cooperation with Arena, a PTC Business, we are currently developing a cloud-enabled standard integration between PTC’s cloud-native PLM solution Arena, and Atlassian’s ALM application Jira, which is also cloud-native.
How do manufacturers of software-driven products strike a balance between PLM and ALM? This question was examined in a joint study conducted by PROSTEP and PROSTEP’s subsidiary BHC for which companies from a number of different industries were surveyed. A key finding of the study is that the level of integration between product and application lifecycle management is currently insufficient to ensure end-to-end digitalization and traceability.
PROSTEP AG has expanded its PLM integration platform OpenPDM to include a new connector to Polarion, the application lifecycle management (ALM) system from Siemens Digital Industries Software. The software and consulting company is thus improving capabilities for integrating ALM systems, which are becoming increasingly important as a result of the high proportion of software in products. The first customer to evaluate the new connector will be the automotive supplier Kautex. The company’s aim is to use the OpenPDM platform to synchronize ALM data with its development partners.
PROSTEP is deepening its long-standing partnership with Siemens Digital Industries Software by developing an OpenPDM connector to Polarion, Siemens’ application lifecycle management (ALM) system. Automotive supplier Kautex will be the first customer to trial the OpenPDM integration platform with the new connector to synchronize ALM data with its development partners.
The SmartSE project of the prostep ivip association goes into the next round. Time for an interim review. In a web seminar, the project partners, including PROSTEP, provided an overview of the activities currently underway and those planned for the future. One of the showcases demonstrated how simulation tasks and results can be exchanged in a traceable way across several partners and tools.
At PROSTEP TECHDAY a year ago, we presented the development plans for our PLM integration platform OpenPDM, our data exchange platform OpenDXM GlobalX and our new OpenCLM solution for creating digital threads and ensuring traceability. Now we want to show you what progress the three product families have made and where the development path is leading.
Companies need flexibly adaptable IT system landscapes if they are to respond more quickly to technological innovations, new market trends and unexpected customer requirements. One possible option is to use PLM from the cloud. In a new white paper, PROSTEP explores the drivers of cloud PLM and what companies should bear in mind on their way to the cloud.

With version 9.3, PROSTEP will be presenting the second major release of its OpenPDM platform for PLM integration, migration and collaboration this year. The main focus of its further development was, on the one hand, placed on improving connectivity to the ALM and ERP world and, on the other hand, enhancing the user-friendliness of the interfaces and reporting functions.
