Aras®, the next leader in enterprise Product Lifecycle
Management (PLM) software, and Aras partner Elysium, a leading global
provider of data translation software, today announced the Elysium xPDM for
Aras connector solution, an integration for data exchange between Dassault
Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform and the Aras Innovator PLM platform.

Businesses are increasingly choosing to combine new platforms with existing
systems to manage product information across the lifecycle and the extended
enterprise. Design data from CAD must be connected with engineering
business processes across product development, manufacturing, quality,
suppliers and field service. Many manufacturers companies are selecting the
best suited CAD, PDM and PLM platforms for each purpose and connecting

“The new connector solution from Elysium fits perfectly with our PLM
platform strategy to address the ‘no file’ world of CAD systems like CATIA
V6 by providing global companies with a seamless way to integrate to the
3DEXPERIENCE environment,” said Doug Macdonald, Product Marketing Director
at Aras. “Having the ability to bring MCAD data from multiple systems
together with ECAD designs, software and firmware at the product’s
system-level configuration is critical to coordinate development, achieve
quality and meet deadlines.”

The xPDM connector enables data to flow securely using the open
standards-based web services APIs in Aras and the XPDM infrastructure in
the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
