PLM Portal

PLM Portal is a data portal which acts as a read-only version of enterprise systems

Overview

PLM Portal is a data portal which acts as a read-only version of enterprise systems like Agile PLM. With its own user base and the ability to connect with the organization’s active directory, PLM Portal users can search, view, download items and their attachments. It enables access to the relevant information for external stakeholders like suppliers and partners without incurring huge licensing fees of enterprise systems.

Value Proposition

PLM Portal is a well-designed product that ensures efficient collaboration between internal teams and external stakeholders. Availability of relevant information to the right users is imperative to optimize business processes and improve productivity. Existing collaboration strategies have limited control, visibility, tracking and document control. PLM Portal streamlines the product development lifecycle while providing effective management.

For example, suppliers play a significant role in the value chain; however, they are usually excluded. PLM Portal allows for two-way collaboration that is inclusive of the suppliers.

Use Cases

PLM Portal can act as an archival portal for enterprise applications. Data is preserved even after the system has been retired.

Reduce the impact and risk of migrating enterprise applications by ensuring the availability of data to the users.

image

Licensing for primary enterprise systems can be very expensive. PLM Portal is the perfect fit for users that just require read-only access. PLM Portal can mitigate licensing costs by providing a need-based solution.

image

Limited information exposure to external users based on their privileges and roles. Provides an additional layer of security for your system.

image

In contrast to the complex primary enterprise systems, PLM Portal offers an easy-to-use interface that allows all parties involved in the product development lifecycle to benefit from it. Search and query bookmarking allow for single click lookups.
