Aras, platform provider for digital industrial applications, makes available PROSTEP OpenPDM for direct connection to all the other major PLM systems. PROSTEP AG is a vendor-neutral solution provider of software and consulting for PLM and has been an Aras partner since 2015. The OpenPDM integration product and connectors are now available directly from Aras.
PROSTEP’s OpenPDM provides standard, out-of-the-box connectors to systems in various domains and disciplines including ENOVIA V6, Teamcenter, Windchill, Agile, DOORS and more. It enables users to synchronize data between systems from different vendors, including part master data, assembly structures, documents and workflows. As a result, there is a decrease in manual work and an increase in data quality and process reliability. OpenPDM is modular, scalable and enterprise ready.
The OpenPDM connectors further expand the wide range of packaged integrations Aras offers, giving organizations the opportunity to connect tools and systems even more easily, the companies report. Previously siloed groups are able to work concurrently with the latest product information, as data flows securely among all users. At the same time, businesses can more quickly digitalize their processes without the risk and disruption of a rip and replace initiative upfront and can retire legacy systems with Aras at their own pace.
“PROSTEP offers Aras customers the opportunity to have coexisting systems while avoiding potential challenges associated with a traditional ‘rip and replace’ strategy,” says Paul Downing, president and CEO of PROSTEP. “OpenPDM and connectors allow for interoperability with Aras Innovator, when needed, and provide an easier migration path to a single system down the road, if, and when, the business is ready to consolidate. This approach eases the barriers to adoption across the business while enabling the benefits of Aras Innovator to be immediately realized.”
