Longview Advisors Publishes 2009 Collaboration & Interoperability Market Report

Free Report Provides In-depth Look at Best Practices

LOVELAND, Colo., Feb. 1 — (PRNewswire) — Longview Advisors released today its 2009 Collaboration & Interoperability Market Report. The Report includes results and analysis from Longview's fifth annual Collaboration & Interoperability best practices survey, along with articles on related industry topics. The Report is free to the public, available as a PDF from www.longviewadvisors.com or from the web sites of the Report's sponsors listed below.

The free annual publication compiles results from Longview's market survey, containing responses from 149 manufacturing professionals in subjects like data exchange practices, preferred platforms and formats, 3D data handling and deployment processes, tool requirements matching, CAD translation effectiveness and other related topics.

The Report also includes a collection of invited papers examining the latest trends, issues and technologies in collaboration and interoperability. Many of the papers are from the most popular speakers at Longview's highly regarded annual Collaboration & Interoperability Congress (CIC), which is held each year in May ( www.3DCIC.com). Registration for CIC is now open, with early-bird registrations available for a limited time.

Commercial sponsors of the publication include: Adobe, CT Core Technologies, Intel, ITI TranscenData, Right Hemisphere and Spatial. Promotional sponsors include: CADCAMnet, the ConnectPress family of CAD communities (e.g. CATIA Community, Pro-E Community, UG Community), Desktop Engineering Magazine, MCADCafe and Tenlinks.

"One of the most revealing facts uncovered in our survey this year is that nearly 53 percent of design or engineering professionals spend more than one day in a typical week reworking or recreating CAD data they receive from others," says David Prawel, CEO of Longview Advisors and Editor of the report. "Amazingly, only 30 percent of respondents report receiving good data most of the time from colleagues within their own company! And only about 17 percent of data exchange with outside partners works most of the time. Clearly, engineers are fixing data problems manually, instead of engineering better products. Managers really need to consider these huge costs when considering lean initiatives and invest in software tools and services to do the job. When you're ill, you call a doctor, so when you have a translation problem, you should also call an expert."
