Aras Announces OEM Licensing Program for Advanced PLM Suite and Underlying Platform Technology

Enables Global ISVs to Extend Product Lines, Enter New Markets and Get Enterprise-Scale Products to Market Faster

ANDOVER, MA and MUNICH, GERMANY -- (Marketwired) -- 09/17/14 -- Aras®, the next leader in enterprise Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software, today announced an OEM licensing program for its advanced PLM platform and technology. Under the program, global independent software providers (ISVs) can license, rebrand and repackage Aras's proven capabilities as their own. ISVs can license the entire product lifecycle management suite or a subset of the underlying platform technology. Aras established the program as a growth strategy in response to market demand for its advanced technology.

"As global enterprise software providers move aggressively to enter new markets and deliver new functionality to customers, they have to consider how fast they can get to market with the right capabilities," said Robert Parker, group vice president at IDC. "What Aras is doing by OEM licensing their platform technology and solutions is quite interesting because it gives ISVs a new option to consider that can help them move quickly and offer a competitive alternative."

The Aras technology is particularly attractive to global providers of ERP, MES, SCM and other enterprise applications that want to expand their product lines and surpass their competition by offering more advanced technology solutions.

"Instead of taking years to build enterprise application functionality from scratch or acquiring outdated technologies, ISVs have a new option: OEM with Aras -- whether it's our entire PLM solution suite or some specific platform functionality -- and start generating revenue right away," said Peter Schroer, President of Aras. "With our OEM program global ISVs have access to modern enterprise software that's market proven and works together with their existing product portfolio."

While the focus and objectives of IoT initiatives are many and diverse, they all share a few common attributes, and one of those is the network. Commonly, that network includes the Internet, over which there isn't any real control for performance and availability. Or is there? The current state of the art for Big Data analytics, as applied to network telemetry, offers new opportunities for improving and assuring operational integrity. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jim Frey, Vice President of S...

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
