new blog: A balancing act between cloud and CAD file system http://beyondplm.com/2016/07/22/balancing-act-cloud-cad-file-system/
CAD files is a real nightmare for any data management system. Because of complex relationships, dependencies and size, to manage CAD files is a very complex function. PDM products are trying to accomplish it for more than two decades with questionable success. Read my blog – CAD files: the root...

Times have changed quickly for cloud. Just few years ago, PLM vendors and manufacturing companies were skeptical about cloud expansion. Not any more. Practically all PLM vendors are embracing cloud and transform products and technology to adopt a new way of business and opportunities. Recent Tech-Clarity article Dassault Systemes Vision...

new blog - Heavy customized systems is a potential barrier for future PLM platform progress http://beyondplm.com/2016/07/12/heavy-customized-systems-potential-barrier-future-plm-platform-progress/
It usually takes time to implement PLM system. One of the reasons for that is heavy customization and adaptations of PLM products to the needs of a specific manufacturing company. Although vendors are can still arguing about differences between configurations and customizations, customers are just looking for how make a...

new blog post: Upgrades and Decustomization of #PLM http://beyondplm.com/2016/07/08/upgrades-decustomization-plm/
For many years, customization was considered an unavoidable thing in enterprise software. At the earlier days, PLM system was a toolkit that used to create an application customer demanded. Companies understood that PLM customization is a data management Titanic, but had not much to do about it. A typical large...

CAD files – the root cause of PDM nightmares http://beyondplm.com/2016/07/21/root-cause-pdm-nightmares/
The data is ultimately important. Ask any engineer in a manufacturing company and he will answer you that he needs data at his fingertips, searchable, accessible, available on mobile devices, etc. etc… However, if you come to the same manufacturing company and ask who wants to be responsible for engineering...

Until now we had enough said about “cloud”. While PLM vendors are still disputing what is a true and false cloud, the things are moving forward. Have you heard about “microservices”? You probably should… Because, microservices is one of these things that can give you a better sense about different...

new blog - Will PLM have MDM “moment of truth”? http://beyondplm.com/2016/07/15/will-plm-mdm-moment-truth/
PLM is transforming from pure engineering discipline into platform capable to manage a diverse set of data and processes. I can see first signs of this transformation in blurring of application boundaries. Vendors are focusing on interaction with users and how to support a complete business workflow. The shift towards...

new blog post - CAD “seats” and future business models http://beyondplm.com/2016/07/13/future-cad-pdm-plm-seats-business-models/
Historically, a business model of CAD, PDM and PLM vendors was to sell “seats”. To sell CAD seats was a core business model for vendors for many years.Nothing wrong with that. It created great businesses in the past. Analysts and industry pundits are still using seat model to make predictions and...

new blog - What is behind “digital PLM” buzzword? http://beyondplm.com/2016/07/11/behind-digital-plm-buzzword/
In the early days of electronic and computer development, “digital” was a technology that generates, stores and process data in terms of two states: positive and non-positive. Positive was expressed by number 1. Non-positive by number 0. Each of these states was referred as a bit. It was developed as...
