☁️ Enterprise Integration… in the cloud

By Justin DiNunzio

Let’s talk about enterprise integration in the manufacturing world.

So, what is it?

It’s the process of connecting different software systems and apps across a company to improve collaboration, communication, and data sharing. For manufacturers, product lifecycle management (PLM) software is a crucial part of enterprise integration.

Think of PLM as managing a product’s entire life cycle – from conception to retirement.

It’s about ensuring everyone has access to the most up-to-date product information from the design and manufacturing processes. To achieve this, integration is required with the ERP, CAD and MES applications in the IT landscape. This integration helps to reduce errors and inconsistencies in product development, procurement, and production leading to saving time and money in the long run.

How cloud technology goes hand-in-hand with PLM

SaaS PLM allows companies to store and access product data in a centralized location, accessible to everyone involved in the product development process. This can help to improve collaboration and streamline communication between different teams, leading to faster innovation and time-to-market.
