NEWS - Aras is First PLM Software Solution Enabled on Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7
This month we announced another PLM industry first: The Aras Innovator suite has been enabled on Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7.

MCADCafé covered our news saying, "By being first to take advantage of the latest Microsoft platform technology advancements Aras is delivering the most scalable, reliable, and secure enterprise PLM software solution available on the market today... Aras Innovator is designed and developed on Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 to take advantage of the innovative and robust capabilities offered for global corporations that require significant scalability, high availability, and comprehensive administration. By combining advanced functionality with an enterprise open source approach Aras is able to deliver a truly unique PLM value proposition to companies of all sizes: better PLM software solutions that eliminate PLM license expenses forever."

This is a significant development which further establishes Aras as the technology leader in the PLM market.

I often wonder why it takes other PLM providers so long to adopt the latest technologies on the market? Sometimes over 2 years?!? Would love to hear your thoughts on this... if you've got any ideas, please feel free to share them with me either by email or posting on the Aras Community Network on LinkedIn. Looking forward to your comments.

"A next generation PDM and PLM solution is essential to enhance the competitive edge of our products. In addition, we find the tool vital in developing a quality driven product development process, essential for building carrier-grade products. We are so very pleased with the speed and ease of deployment, that we are considering expanding the solution into new areas."

Arnob Roy, President of Engineering
Tejas Networks

"We needed an enterprise solution that would help us manage our development process more effectively and provide status as a result of the business we conduct, as opposed to a separate reporting system that we had to maintain."
