CAD-centric PLM, ERP-centric PLM, and Organic PLM: What's Right for You? - Part 3


Part 1 of this blog series started with the assertion that product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions are becoming increasingly important to enterprises in a strategic sense. However, not all PLM products are created equal, especially in light of their different origins. I then explored the advantages and weaknesses of the first group of PLM solutions: those coming from stalwart

Then, I analyzed the advantages of the second PLM group: the Big Three  enterprise resource planning (ERP)  vendors - SAP, Oracle , and Infor ( NGC Software would be an ERP and PLM combination in the fashion/apparel industry). Part 2 analyzed the typical shortcomings of ERP-based PLM offerings and concluded with the Read More
