7 Reasons Why Cloud Integration Is Important for Your PLM

From design to marketing, Oracle PLM software has become an essential platform for manufacturers to manage their product lifecycle operations. However, times are changing rapidly, and traditional PLM systems are unable to keep up with the fast-changing customer and industry requirements. How can you overcome this? Integrate your PLM with the cloud. 

Integration with the cloud allows you to turn your PLM into a highly responsive, adaptive, and connective platform. Better product lifecycle management improves workflow across the infrastructure and drives growth, helping you stay ahead of your competitors. 

This blog lists 7 reasons why you should consider integrating your Oracle PLM Solutions with the cloud. 

Cheap Infrastructure Setup: 

To set up a PLM on-prem to cloud infrastructure, you need several costly servers. You might also require a lot of storage space and a re-upgrade after some time. Depending upon your business’ size, the cost can become quite unaffordable. 

In such a scenario; 

Reliable Cloud migration and integration services might be the best option. 

Since the expenses of the cloud are divided among the clients, they can be much cheaper than maintaining an on-premises PLM. 

Better Management: 

Depending upon your changing business needs, you might have different licensing or server extra requirements at different times. Arranging these servers timely might require a lot of crucial resources and energy. Also, when you don’t require these extra resources, you still have to bear the expenses. 

Through PLM cloud integration, you just have to subscribe for the required servers or licenses. If you don’t need them at any time, you can just cancel the subscription. 

Quick Implementation: 

On-premises PLM implementation requires a lot of planning and strategic teams to work on it for months. Not only is it a costly option, but it can also require several months or even years to fully implement it. 

Cloud implementation, instead, is super quick and smooth. It can take as few as 2-3 days to fully implement it. And immediately after implementation, you can carry on with the routine tasks without any hassle. 

Easy Access: 

One of the major drawbacks of on-premises PLM is that you can’t access important data anywhere. You have to be on-premises to access it. Some firewalls can allow you to access off-premises, however, these can be quite slow. The delay in access can severely impact the workflow. 

On the other hand, Cloud PLM allows you to access important data anytime, anywhere. This helps you save considerable amounts of time and energy in managing crucial operations. 

Timely Updates: 

Keeping up with technological advancements is crucial to ensure the success of your products and services. However, agile PLM upgrades can be costly and along with the on-premises maintenance, the price can just skyrocket. 

On the other hand, by opting for the Cloud option, you can save on the hefty upgrade cost by just paying a subscription fee. The provider also offers premium PLM support so you won’t need to pay extra for regular maintenance. 

Lower Maintenance Fee: 

A huge part of an enterprise’s budget is wasted on on-premise PLM maintenance. This money, which is spent on simply maintaining regular operations, could very well be spent on innovative features and add-ons. 

By opting for the Cloud option, you can simply rely on the maintenance services offered within your subscription. In this way, your teams could focus their energies on making the most of your PLM infrastructure. 

Better Security: 

Lastly, on-premises PLM does not offer the same level of security as Cloud PLM does. If you have a vast amount of enterprise data, then PLM security could be even harder to maintain on-premises. You might have to go for a third-party service provider to ensure higher-level data security. However, this would cost you extra. 

Cloud PLM offers premium security to its customers without any additional costs. Its multilayered firewalls and security protocols ensure that customer data remains secure at all costs, and at all times.
