ALM Integration

Leverage ALM Systems

As software-enabled products become the norm, companies are facing the challenge of managing the lifecycle of "systems". An emerging component of their strategy is the integration of an existing Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) system managing software source files and binaries with enterprise-wide PLM capabilities.

Enterprise ALM Connections

PLM with Aras can be combined with an existing ALM environment, creating a complete system view of multidisciplinary products fully integrated into enterprise processes including BOM and change management while source code is managed in the ALM system.

Watch this short video to learn how Aras has teamed with Airbus and IBM to enable a Systems Engineering approach.
