ANDOVER, Mass. and Solothurn, Switzerland – December 1, 2010 – Aras®, the leading enterprise open source Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software solution provider, today announced a development partnership with Trubiquity, a leading provider of global managed file transfer (MFT) and business process integration solutions. Together, Aras and Trubiquity will provide a series of solutions that connect the Aras Innovator enterprise PLM suite to Trubiquity’s Cloud-based services for highly secure collaboration and MFT in the PLM workflow.
The initial offering provides seamless access from within the Aras PLM solution to Trubiquity’s market-leading MFT workspace. Users can share, collaborate and manage CAD files, specifications, requirements and other intellectual property in a secure cloud-based environment from within their company specific PLM workflows. This capability enables the seamless exchange of CAD files and related product data between thousands of global supply chain partners simultaneously.
“As companies look for better ways to enable global operations with suppliers and outsourced partners, they need simple ways to manage sophisticated files transfer and collaboration processes while ensuring absolute security of their intellectual property,” said Stephen Koons, CEO and President of Trubiquity. “With Trubiquity’s services inside the Aras business processes we achieve a very straightforward approach to multi-enterprise integration for highly secure supply chain collaboration.”
“Making the connection between corporate workflows and cloud-based services completely transparent to end users is very powerful for both the companies using these services and the service providers,” said Peter Schroer, President of Aras. “Together with Trubiquity we are connecting people, information and services in what we call a ‘connected cloud’ approach which has the potential to truly transform the way people work by enabling new capabilities while masking the complexity.”
