ARAS TRAINING: Upcoming Sessions

Lots of exciting news this month! NEWS FLASH: We just signed a strategic reseller agreement with IBM... We've also got a new community site for forums/blogs/wikis,... and we want to hear what you'd like on our ACE 2017 agenda.

The new year is coming fast... so, if you're preparing next year's PLM strategy and need a budgetary estimate, get in touch. We can get you a quote and help with your plans as well.




FEATURED ARTICLE: IBM & Aras Announce Strategic Reseller Agreement

In case you haven't heard... we've partnered with IBM in a new, strategic reseller agreement. Our partnership brings IBM's market leading ALM and Systems Engineering tools together with the PLM industry's most flexible, scaleable and upgradeable platform (yes, that'd be Aras Innovator :-)

By linking the Agile software development processes in ALM with the rest of the organization's engineering processes in PLM, your company can create a delivery pipeline of synchronized hardware, electronics and software configurations. And our joint offering can enable a true system-level Digital Twin across the lifecycle with a resulting Digital Thread as the product configuration evolves.

It builds on our ALM-PLM open reference architecture for systems engineering to provide the basis for continuous innovation, traceability and design optimization based on IoT feedback loops.


Our partnership means that enterprises will now have a market leading alternative that:

  • Covers the full scope for global product development, manufacturing and support
  • Can replace an existing PLM environment or overlay on top for new capabilities
  • Upgrades easily even when heavily customized
  • Minimizes disruption, cost and risk
  • Runs on premise, in the cloud or hybrid

Together our joint solution can deliver the collaboration, coordination and compliance benefits necessary for your company to develop tomorrow's next generation products today.
