ANN ARBOR, Michigan, July 13, 2010—CIMdata, Inc., the leading global Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) management consulting and research firm released a new PLM Program Review entitled “Solid Edge Insight: A Microsoft SharePoint-Based Dedicated Design Data Management Solution for Solid Edge Communities.” This CIMdata-authored white paper reviews Siemens PLM Software’s Microsoft SharePoint-based design data management solution. The paper describes Solid Edge Insight and how it is a proven design-centric PLM solution focused on supporting Solid Edge communities. The paper also describes the value of this MS SharePoint-based solution for Solid Edge customers, and how the MS SharePoint platform enables them to leverage their existing IT infrastructure, and immediately benefit from the integration of design data and processes with their other business processes.
According to Peter Bilello, CIMdata’s President, “Solid Edge Insight is a proven design-centric PLM solution focused on supporting Solid Edge communities. Siemens PLM has a long list of customers who have implemented and benefited from using Solid Edge Insight.” Solid Edge Insight, which was first released in 2001 with Solid Edge Version 11, has more than eight years of proven customer success and is used by more than 1,000 customers. In this paper, CIMdata provides three CIMdata-written Solid Edge Insight customer briefs. Each brief provides a description of the Solid Edge Insight customer, its Solid Edge Insight implementation, and the value they have received by using the solution.
“By building their solution on top of a commercial Microsoft SharePoint platform, Siemens PLM is able to deliver to market a strong set of PLM functionality without having to develop and prove a new architecture,” commented Mr. Bilello. For Solid Edge customers, the MS SharePoint platform enables them to leverage their existing IT infrastructure and immediately benefit from the integration of design data and processes with their other business processes.
Mr. Bilello added, “A key strength of the Insight solution is that it is fully embedded within the Solid Edge application and provides transparent and seamless design management functionality for managed collaboration.” Siemens PLM continues to make significant enhancements to Insight that leverage the latest MS SharePoint capabilities to deliver wider PLM capabilities and improved collaboration across the customer’s organization, as well as with their suppliers and customers.
