The Aberdeen AXIS is an objective, fact-based vendor assessment methodology based on vendor performance in KPI benchmarks from Aberdeen’s domain-specific research, and the Market Readiness of the organization determined by over 250 evaluation criteria. The report measures PLM solution providers’ capabilities in “Market Readiness” and “Value Delivered” and offers enterprise end-users a platform to understand and select PLM solutions.
According to the report, PTC achieved the highest overall score on Market Readiness and Value Delivered to customers. The report cites PTC’s “ability to partner globally and its focus on enabling customer processes” as a key differentiator in the Market Readiness category. PTC’s development of a second global headquarters facility in Shanghai, China is highlighted as a demonstration of its commitment to serving Asia and the Pacific Rim. The report also recognized PTC’s focus on its customers’ business processes and how its Windchill® solutions support those processes when planning enhancements and new product capabilities. Aberdeen concludes that “Customers can engage PTC in a discussion with confidence that the out-of-the-box solution can support their processes.”
In assessing Value Delivered to customers, the report cites PTC’s architectural and development strategy, the overall capabilities of Windchill, and its synergy and integration with other applications within the PTC Product Development System (PDS). Aberdeen states that “PTC’s Windchill should be considered by any size manufacturer that is considering a PLM solution to support its efforts.”
“We believe that Windchill is the best-in-class PLM solution in the industry, offering enterprises of all sizes the broad capabilities needed to achieve their product development initiatives,” said Rob Gremley, executive vice president, marketing, PTC. “It’s rewarding to be recognized for our commitment to deliver maximum value to our customers through superior technology.”
