Product lifecycle management services

Get the product and process expertise to help manage and support a PLM environment

Managing product information is the foundation for any industry that produces finished goods or subcomponents. Product development faces common challenges within the organization and with supplier partners, including reusing data, leveraging corporate knowledge, enabling concurrent engineering and design discussions and facilitating information sharing. The complexity and number of data elements produced in the design process make areas, such as Computer Aided Design (CAD) vaulting, version control and release management, standard requirements for all members of an extended supply chain.

OpenText™ offers expert managed services and market leading product lifecycle management (PLM) software as a licensed reseller of solutions from Dassault Systèmes and Siemens, offloading complexity and accelerating time to market.

What is product lifecycle management?
