Let’s Discuss Your Technology or Business Issues, Expectations and Directions

June 5th, 2009 by Bill Abramson

These are incredibly challenging times.  We are being forced to continue to operate successfully, maintain our competitive position and do it with major reductions in people and resources.  In my past experiences, we have helped people in our network address so many of their issues by establishing, informally, direct lines of dialogue between concerned parties.  We found that by discussing our lessons learned, we were able to make some sound decisions.  To initiate this blog, let’s have a discussion in the following areas:

  • When you came into work today, what is the most demanding issue on your ‘desk’?  How are you dealing with it/them?
  • If time and money was no object, where would you like to lead your near-term directions?  What are your expectations?
  • Over the past 12 months, what do you consider to be your enterprise’s most satisfying success?

    Companies need to stop letting there users/employees determine there corporate direction when it
    comes to technology. Companies need to embrace new and more efficient ways of working regardless of there employees resistance to this change. If they don’t they will never get better, or improve in the critical areas necessary to be competitive..

    Which do find the most intimidating and/or threatening to you production environment:
    – Deployment of a new production s/w application?
    – Deployment of a new version/release of a production s/w application?

  3. One would feel that any addition or modification to the enterprise’s production environment would be required to pass a litmus test of how well does the change add value to the overall infrastructure. Does the change fit within a corporate road map or master plan. Adding value for a local functional area may not work for the overall operation.

    Bill, what can you tell us about Siemens NX 6 on Mac OSX? Can I as a one man show expect to gain productivity over SolidWorks on Windows? I left the Mac in 2001 for SW but I believe Windows and PC’s are killing my working time. Now I can have real MCAD on a Mac. This is my “burning issue”.

  5. I am not sure how to answer, but I WILL get an answer for you 🙂

  6. NX has been available on Mac OS X since 2006 as part of an early adopter program, but Siemens PLM Software announced earlier this month the general availability of NX with native support for Mac OS X on 64-bit Intel-based Macs. This means the NX functionality has been fully ported to this platform and has been developed to run natively, i.e. without any emulation software.

    Not only is NX supported, but also support for Teamcenter through rich client capabilities embedded in NX and the thin client based on Apple’s Safari web browser. As a result, NX for Mac OS X can leverage all the capabilities of Teamcenter, the world’s most widely used PLM portfolio, including its ability to support a multi-platform CAD strategy.
