Why Can’t I Use SharePoint for PDM/PLM?

In my conversations with clients and prospects this is a question I frequently get asked. At its surface, SharePoint seems like an equal to PDM/PLM. It has the ability to manage files, file access and revisions. It has the ability to track meta data about files or records and it has a workflow engine. Isn't this basically what a simple PDM or PLM system do?

To POWER’BY or not to POWER’BY

Dassault Systèmes will be turning on the POWER’BY technology in the upcoming R2018x release of the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform. How POWER’BY affects customers is yet to be seen. As far as we know, POWER’BY is not a role, license, etc., it is a feature that can be configured. Whether a customer enables or turns on POWER’BY immediately becomes a choice, and that choice is determined based on when a customer first deploys the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform.

3 Easy Steps to Maximize Traceable Requirements within 3DEXPERIENCE

Remember those days when project management information was dispersed among several file types, inconsistent templates and tools such as MS Office, Visio, & Project? Maybe your Project Management Office (PMO) deployed “new” tools such as Basecamp, Rally, Smartsheet, JIRA, etc? While these options are modern, agile, and collaborative, that information is most likely scattered throughout multiple network drives or databases.

Why Can’t I Find a Fix Pack / HotFix for Enovia IEF Client in 3DEXPERIENCE Media?

For years, Dassault has referred to the Integration Exchange Framework Client or IEF as the ENOVIA Integration Exchange Framework Client. However, starting in 3DEXPERIENCE R2015x, including 2016x and 2017x, the naming changes between GA and the release of Fix Packs/HotFixes, resulting in a bit of frustration for those trying to extract media for patching a 3DEXPERIENCE Open Application, such as an X-CAD Connector/Integration, on the client machines.
