Welcome to all the new members that joined the corporate community this month! It's really expanding to include a great mix of people with different skills and perspectives from all over the world. The open process is truly benefiting from all of your ideas that are being introduced into the solutions. Thanks, and keep 'em coming!

EDITOR'S PICK - Aras Changes PLM Industry with Open Model
A couple weeks ago, Desktop Engineering magazine's Anthony J. Lockwood selected Aras Innovator Version 9 as the Editor's Pick of the Week for changing the PLM industry with the open model.

Lockwood explained that, "Aras is doing for PLM what Red Hat did for Linux: open source format licensing. The mission of Aras is to change the rules of the game so that you gain competitive advantage using powerful enterprise software without horsing around with crazy licensing schemes and oppressive software management... In my book, that's reason enough to check Aras Innovator out."

He also points out how easy Aras is to use, deploy and customize, and goes on in the article to explain how the broad range of functionality Aras provides is transforming the way companies automate PLM and Quality processes.

WINNER - 50" Plasma HDTV!!!
Congratulations to Terry Stickel!! He's the lucky winner of the VIZIO 50" Plasma HDTV drawing from the Refer Friends to Win contest. Terry lives in beautiful Sanibel Florida, and is now the proud owner of a brand new flat screen HDTV... just in time for the Olympics!

We want to thank everyone that participated in the contest and encourage people to continue to share the exciting news about the Aras Innovator's availability as Microsoft enterprise open source.

PARTNERS - Aras Launches New Partner Program
Recently, we updated the Aras Partner Program to provide significant advantages over the traditional partner programs offered by PTC, Oracle Agile, and other PLM/PDM providers.

As the corporate community continues to grow, there are more and more companies that need expert professional services consulting and systems integration services here in the US and all over the world.

The open source business model is ideal for partner organizations because the up-front license fees are removed which eliminates the most common obstacle companies face when attempting to start a PLM or quality solution consulting project.

The Aras solutions also provide greater opportunity because they implement as either a complete enterprise PLM or can be used to complement & extend existing PDM, PLM or ERP systems.

And because Aras uses the Microsoft platform it's easy to learn... and don't let me forget to mention that partners have more control because the solutions are open.

We recognize that partners are an extremely important part of the corporate community, and we're committed to ensuring that valuable relationships are developed for the long term.
