Aras Strengthens Ties with Strategic Partners Ansys and AVEVA at ACE 2023

Aras Strengthens Ties with Strategic Partners Ansys and AVEVA at ACE 2023

The countdown to ACE 2023 has begun! Aras will host the first in-person Aras Community Event (ACE) in North America in three years in just a few weeks in Orlando, Florida, May 2-3. We are excited to be back and look forward to three days of training, keynotes, customer presentations, and demonstrations.

Our first day begins with an Aras Community Update from our CEO, Roque Martin, after which he will MC a session on Aras Strategic Partnerships – Delivering Incremental Value and Reach with Mark Hindsbo of Ansys and Rick Standish of AVEVA. At Aras, we recognize the importance of strategic partnerships with other software vendors (original equipment manufacturers or OEMs).  Our strategic OEM partners leverage the Aras platform, bringing its key underlying technologies to a wider audience.

Aras partnerships provide myriad benefits to customers

The most exciting outcome of our partnership with Ansys has been the creation of Ansys Minerva, an SPDM (Simulation Process and Data Management) solution based on the Aras Innovator® platform. Ansys Minerva provides a comprehensive engineering simulation and data management solution and has been well-received by customers in many industries. They provide the ability to accelerate design processes, reduce costs, and improve overall efficiency by managing customers’ simulation processes and data, enabling them to do more in less time.

Ansys Minerva's success shows Aras Innovator’s power and the importance of strong OEM partnerships that bring innovative products to market faster. Ansys leveraged Aras technology and combined it with their domain expertise to rapidly create Ansys Minerva to meet the market’s unique needs. By working closely with partners like Ansys, we can leverage their domain expertise and insights and combine them with our technology to create products that meet the market's unique needs.

The strategic OEM partnership with AVEVA was inked at the end of 2021. Their Asset Lifecycle Management (ALM) Program is, with the help of a team from Aras, rapidly adding various PLM-like capabilities to existing applications and asset information management platforms. AVEVA applications such as AVEVATmUnified Engineering, AVEVATm Asset Information Management (AIM), and AVEVATm Information Standards Management (ISM) are being integrated with the Aras platform – you can see an early demonstration of this at ACE.

The ALM suite of applications and capabilities will add deliverables management, change management, configuration management, requirements management, BoM control and project management to the AVEVA offerings, making the leap from asset information management to asset lifecycle management.

At ACE, you can learn more about the ALM vision and roadmap, and how you can participate in the Lighthouse and Early Access Programs to leverage these advanced ALM capabilities before the formal release of the products in 2024. You will also be able to speak with key AVEVA and Aras ALM team members over your choice of brew – we hope to see you there!

You don’t want to miss this

Per Aras CEO Roque Martin, “We see the AVEVA and ANSYS partnerships as game-changers for simulation and engineering processes that provide traceability, connectivity, and reuse across the product lifecycle. Our cloud-native PLM technology opens the door to data-centric collaboration in products from design through reuse and end-of-life, both on-prem and in the cloud. Aras supports AVEVA’s agile approach to industry solutions and ANSYS’ open ecosystem approach to simulation management to help accelerate our joint customers’ digital transformation processes.

We are excited to continue working with Ansys, AVEVA, and other partners to reinvent software for engineering and manufacturing, empowering our joint customers with the flexibility to overcome tomorrow’s changes rapidly.
