Best-of-Breed Versus Complete CAD-PLM Suites: The Debate Rages On


The PLM world is currently witness to fervent debate on the most appropriate type of PLM/CAD software. Best-of-breed solutions offer the needed capabilities and hence integrate the necessary software modules as per the customer’s needs, whereas all-in-one CAD/PLM suites attempt a “one size fits all” approach. In his report, TEC principal analyst P.J. Jakovljevic provides his view on the intricacies of these two approaches.

Intuitive Display of Complex Data on iOS


This is a case study of the design process for an iOS application. The software in question accepts a high-bandwidth, real-time stream of multidimensional data from a hardware accessory, and must present this data to the user in a form that can be easily understood and manipulated. This paper will examine the decisions made during the design process and the tradeoffs considered, and extract some lessons about how to solve this type of problem within the constraints of a mobile device.
