OpenPDM provides the basis for many of the successful integration projects that we have implemented in recent years. One example is the Webasto Group, which is not only migrating its CATIA installation to 3DEXPERIENCE but also replacing its heterogeneous PDM landscape company-wide with the PLM suite 4PEP from ILC Solutions.
The stable linking together of two PLM systems or a PLM and an ERP system is not rocket science, and our customers have been using OpenPDM to do exactly that for years. PLM system landscapes are however becoming increasingly heterogeneous and subject to dramatic change.
OpenPDM is far more than just the leading PLM integration platform. Our standard connectors connect the PDM/PLM world to all the IT worlds relevant to product development, be it ERP, Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) or the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). OpenPDM not only makes it possible for us to synchronize data between the connected systems but also implement new concepts for cross-system data linking. When strong partnerships occur, the ability to bring the best strengths and talents from both companies emerge to deliver more impactful, comprehensive, and complementary software solutions to their user base.
PROSTEP INC and parent company PROSTEP AG are Platinum sponsors at this year’s annual COExperience, now a virtual event held September 14-16, 2020. COE (Community of Experts of Dassault Systemes Solutions) brings together users of Dassault Systemes software and provides unprecedented access to education, training, networking, product influence opportunities and best practices.
For the 23rd year, the largest PLM conference in Europe will go virtual on September 2, 2020. The PROSTEP iVIP Symposium will give attendees access to digital transformation discussions, systems engineering, digital twins, IoT and Industry 4 though leadership presentations.
The new version of our OpenPDM integration platform connects PLM and ERP systems securely and reliably, regardless of whether they are installed in the cloud or locally. Thanks to its modular architecture, independent connectors and the use of microservices, OpenPDM 9 is ready for use in hybrid cloud/on-premise scenarios. The alternative is a standards-based integration platform that allows new IT systems to be connected easily and data to be synchronized with all the systems that have already been integrated.
PLM landscapes are constantly changing and with them integration requirements. Proprietary point-to-point interfaces between individual applications are no longer able to meet these requirements. The alternative is a standards-based integration platform that allows new IT systems to be connected easily and data to be synchronized with all the systems that have already been integrated.
OpenPDM has been around for 20 years. The integration platform's functional scope and possible areas of application have changed dramatically during this time. Thanks to its new, microservices-based architecture, it can now also be used in hybrid cloud/on-premise scenarios.
"Integrate the Future" is PROSTEP's maxim, to which we remain committed. We have been involved with product data integration for over 25 years and during this time we have provided numerous big-name companies with advice and support when designing their integration-compatible PLM landscapes. Based on this experience, we have come to the conclusion that the current challenges posed by the digital transformation require a new approach to integration: linking data, not replicating it, is the order of the day.
Many companies are considering moving their PLM and ERP systems or parts of them to the cloud. To pave the way for them into the clouds, PROSTEP is enabling the use of its world's leading integration platform OpenPDM in hybrid cloud scenarios through a modular architecture and the use of microservices.
