Bentley Extends Commitment to Siemens PLM Software


The 3D computed-aided design (CAD) world continues to be co-opetitive. Many of the situations where fierce competitors end up using each other’s tools in their competing products are circumstantial, i.e., those products were using tools supplied by a software company before it was acquired by a competitor. For example, the Parasolid 3D geometric modeling kernel was developed

Bentley expressed its interest in the ability of Bodyshop to “heal” (i.e., repair, optimize, and validate) imperfect 3D geometry imported from third-party CAD systems. For its part, D-Cubed is a geometry constraint solver and a set of calculation libraries that have been modularized and can be used with other Read More

IFS Continues Its Reinvention Through Pruning Part One: Event Summary


Is selling-off of its Brazilian subsidiary and of tangential CAD and payroll applications a sign that IFS is grasping the realities of a mature enterprise applications market, which requires, among many other things, finding a perfect balance between cultivating the install base versus the zeal for hitching brand new customers?

A Glance at AVEVA’s Future of Plant Design


AVEVA, a computer aided design (CAD) pioneer, opened its doors under the name CADCentre in 1967 as a breakaway of a research initiative of Cambridge University. Its history is closely related to the Silicon Fen phenomenon, which is the UK equivalent of the high-tech and information technology (IT) hub Silicon Valley. Important milestones in the history of the company include the release of the

As Simon Bennett told me, AVEVA plans its products for the medium- and long-term future, and the company has been doing this for more than 40 years. I will be following the evolution of the project and will provide more details when the solution is officially launched. Read More

Siemens’ JT Data Format Gets a Nod from ISO


The year 2012 ended with a major win for (and perhaps a sigh of relief from) Siemens PLM Software, a business unit of the Siemens Industry Automation Division. Namely, in December 2012, Siemens’ JT data format, a lightweight data format that makes it possible to view and share digital 3D product information in real time throughout all phases of a product’s lifecycle, was approved by the

So how likely is it that these vendors (e.g., Dassault Systèmes , SAP , and Oracle ) will embrace (or even accept) the JT format just because it is now ISO anointed? Some of these other vendors promote 3DXML as the data format. In theory, this standardization will allow CAD-agnostic PLM providers such as Aras to replace a CAD-based PLM vendor, or for s Read More

Siemens PLM Analyst Conference 2014—Blending Virtual and Real Worlds—Part Two


Last week on the TEC blog, TEC's P.J. Jakovljevic looked at the main themes of the Siemens PLM Conference 2014 he recently attended, including Siemens’ “realize innovation” strategy. Here are his thoughts regarding the rest of the conference, with a look at what’s new with “catalysts” and Teamcenter, and what else can be expected from the product lifecycle management (PLM) vendor in 2014 and beyond.

Acquisitive Vendor Expands Its Enterprise Asset Management Potential


IFS has much to offer customers. Its IFS Applications suite now boasts an asset lifecycle management module for quick data retrieval. IFS also has a strong commitment to international standards, and with its acquisition of iSC, expertise in naval and marine operations.

For example, once data is entered into the common database, it immediately becomes available to the other IFS Applications modules; as a result, information can be recycled, and it remains consistent and updated, never having to be re-entered. Also, the CAD modules Read More

IFS Continues Its Reinvention through Pruning Part Three: Market Impact and User Recommendations


By selling CAD and payroll applications, IFS may not only control potential damage but also "kill two birds with one stone" by 1) leveraging Bentley's and Personec's commitment to a true partnership and product integration to boost both parties’ license sales, while streamlining its own operations; and 2) obtaining some equity, however little, as to improve its balance sheet.
