Don't Compromise

Don't Compromise

Every company has a unique and complex way of doing business and must constantly adapt to new market conditions, customer demands, and other factors.

But with traditional PLM architectures you have a choice – customizing to meet your needs (which typically takes more than a year) means you can’t easily upgrade. So you can’t take advantage of system enhancements and may end up paying premium support costs.

So Aras is designed to fit your business needs, rather than the business compromised to fit the software.

Model-Based SOA

Model-Based SOA

Instead of the traditional approach - defining an object model which is hard coded into the services - we chose to separate the two. The result is a run-time web application framework consisting of loosely coupled / federated web services optimized for performance and scalability which form a service-oriented architecture (SOA) - the Platform.

Then we use meta-data templates to describe everything: application functionality, business logic, data schema, screens, workflows, etc, etc, etc... literally everything. The meta-data templates define the objects in the system and those objects then "subscribe" to the services that they need. We call it a "model-based SOA" and it’s the basis for creating flexible, scalable, upgradable applications.

Model-Based SOA Benefits

Deploy Quickly, Adapt Easily

Aras's enterprise application framework enables the rapid implementation of solutions either from scratch or starting with defined industry templates, for significantly faster enterprise deployments. Forms, workflows, relationships structures, and data model schema are tailored and configured in real-time at a business level.

Enabling Scalability

The Aras architecture provides a new level of PLM platform scalability for enterprises with global supply chains and a significant number of PLM users. Aras's architectural design allows for the handling of very large levels of throughput by using frequent, short database transactions.

Making Upgrades Easy

As a result of the separation of meta-data templates from the core services, upgrades are always straightforward and easy. In fact Aras performs upgrades for subscribers at no additional cost. No other PLM vendor can make this promise.
