Good news for corporate community members even in these volatile economic times... the practicalbusiness advantages of the open model make more sense than ever: Freedom from Licensing, No Up- front Capital, Unlimited Users... everyday more & more companies are realizing that the open approach is the way of the future. Bravo!

EVENTS SUMMARY - Aras Community Network: Europe 2008 - Highlights
This month we held the first European community event in Munich Germany and had an outstanding turn out. People came from all over to make new connections, share, and learn about the Aras open model for advanced PLM solutions.

The keynote speaker was Prof. Dr. Martin Eigner, the renowned strategic PLM thought leader, and he explained his research on the future of PLM. He makes a strong, data driven case that the days of "do it all at once" PLM initiatives are gone, and that future projects will be incrementally oriented and metrics driven with PLM dashboards & scorecards to demonstrate product innovation success and justify new product development investments.

The Aras open model and SOA approach embody this new reality providing an ideal means of attaining a real Return On Investment [ROI] much more quickly than previously possible.

Martin Allemann, Aras VP for EMEA, provided everyone with a compelling vision of how the open model delivers both business benefits (Freedom from Licensing, No Capital Necessary) and significant innovation advantages.

Also, Freudenberg Group, the largest private manufacturer in Germany with over 5 billion Euro in annual revenues, shared with the community their experience rolling out Aras Innovator to over 26 sites across Europe...
