2012 Aras Year in Review
PLM Blog - Aras Corporate Blog


Throughout the past year we've been telling you about the many ways in which Aras is Different. And the word is definitely spreading. 2012 was another year of tremendous growth for Aras and the Aras Community, and the sixth straight year of double digit customer growth!

During the year we released numerous service packs, a new version of Aras EPLM for SolidWorks users followed by the launch of Aras VPLM for the Autodesk community, as well as the new Requirements Management solution.

We had ACE Events all across the world and attended countless conferences including GPDIS, PLM Innovation, Microsoft Global Energy Forum and more. On top of that, we opened a new regional headquarters in Japan and named Masahiko Hisatsugu President of Aras Japan. It was a great year. And it's all thanks to you, the members of our thriving Community.

Here are some technical highlights from the past year:

  • Public APIs for use with the File Conversion Server
  • Support for Microsoft SQL server 2012
  • Multiple onSearchDialog events.
  • Localization capabilities in the installer
  • Japanese language option in the installer.
  • Ability to pass information from the onBefore to the onAfter event handler in server side Methods.
  • The IOME.CheckinManager for multi-threaded, asynchronous, structured file upload with conflict detection support.
  • Separate 32-bit and 64-bit installers introduced on InstallShield 2012 platform

And that's just the start of the continuous innovations going on here at Aras.

But rather than tell you all about it, I'd rather show you.
