Sustainability From a Roles Perspective: Reflections from DSCC 2010 (Day 2)


As Dassault Systèmes Customer Conference (DSCC) 2010 moved to day 2, use of the word “innovation” continued its popularity at various sessions. However, I’d like to refrain from using this hot keyword and move to “sustainability,” one of the outcomes of innovation, and discuss it from a role perspective. This thought was triggered by today’s ENOVIA Brand Overview session by Michel Tellier

Compared with ENOVIA V6's lengthy and hierarchical functionality list at this link , this roles approach is a more effective way of communication. A while ago, I wrote about the relevance between PLM and sustainability taking the angle of a specific PLM vendor (which happened to be Dassault Systèmes) in the article In Search of Sustainability with Dassault Systèmes Read More

How to Make People More Willing to Share Knowledge in Their PLM Environment


In Why Some People Don’t Like PLM, Graham McCall said that some product lifecycle management (PLM) users’ reluctance to share knowledge with others is the obstacle toward higher acceptance of PLM. I thought his point made perfect sense, and my instant reaction was to ask myself: How can this problem be resolved? Ideally, a PLM system is a platform for people to work together. This means that

Infor ION-izes its Open SOA Strategy - Part 1


2010 has certainly been an interesting (if not a crossroads) year for Infor. Namely, after a number of new high-profile hires at the beginning of the year, which signalled Infor’s intention to be taken seriously, the vendor then entered an eerily quieter period of several months. Except for the ongoing vocal marketing campaign entitled “Down with Big ERP” with witty

If Infor’s product development work now focuses on integrating and putting Microsoft front-ends (i.e., “lipstick on the pig”), what about substantial functional enhancements to the products? If customers are not getting a significant flow of enhancements in addition to mere integrations, why would they upgrade anyway? How long will it take for, say, 10 percent of customers to upgrade to the Read More

Critical Components of an E-PLM System
