Newsbyte: SAP Joins Codex of PLM Openness

WALLDORF, Germany, June 11, 2012 — (PRNewswire) — In an effort to support the highest standards of openness and development in the area of product lifecycle management (PLM), SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) has signed the Codex of PLM Openness (CPO). SAP has been involved in the development of CPO since its onset and is committed to both implementing the CPO requirements in product development and supporting the future development of the initiative.

The CPO defines criteria for the openness of IT solutions used in PLM in order to help ensure that data created throughout the product life cycle can be used throughout the business as well. ProSTEP iViP has driven the CPO in close cooperation with PLM software users, PLM software vendors and implementation partners. The initiative describes a common understanding of the openness of systems in the context of PLM.

Because SAP holds openness to be an essential element in its solution strategy, the elements of the CPO are vital to the company's developments in PLM software. SAP respects the need for openness in information systems for customers in order to assist them in their best long-term IT strategy, and has been committed to this goal for over 40 years, both in its broad product portfolio and as a major PLM software vendor. The SAP® PLM application is a source code open system that offers a variety of open interfaces through which other systems can be linked to help ensure data consistency and an integrated process flow.

"As a software provider, it is important for us to be a trusted partner for our customers, working together in their often heterogeneous and complex system landscapes," said Hans Thalbauer, senior vice president, Solution Management, SAP PLM. "Openness is therefore a natural design goal for SAP and has been a part of our PLM systems for many years. With our customers and partners, through these efforts we have expanded the common benefit. The Codex of PLM Openness is an important initiative to all those with a common basic understanding of openness provided by IT systems."
