IBM-Siemens PLM Agreement

By Dora Smith

The press release is not out yet so social media is trumping traditional PR on this one.

While we’ve partnered with IBM in the past for focused initiatives, this is the first alliance of this scope. The alliance covers software development, software delivery and PLM services to provide a comprehensive PLM solution stack.

Tony Affuso, our CEO, noted that we actually signed the agreement a year ago but waited to formally announce it until we had results under our belt. So for the past year there has been a ton of integration work between our development team and IBM’s. Teamcenter has adopted and been certified on the product development information framework (PDIF) and is the first to embrace Websphere and DB2.

My colleague Shaun Ennis is at the event and sending me some video snippets to share with you. Here is one of Bill Carrelli, our vice president of strategic marketing.
