Up with Agile PLM 9.3
By Shane Goodwin-Oracle on Jun 22, 2009
Pixar has another hit on their hands with the movie Up where a large number of balloons lifts a house into the air, leading to an uplifting story about the raising of the human spirit. We like to think of Agile PLM 9.3 as a large set of balloons primed to raise our customers’ innovation and product development framework to a new level by providing a friendly, productive, extensible PLM platform. Please allow us to participate in your company’s uplifting true story – grab onto Agile PLM 9.3.
What is Agile PLM 9.3? We have upgraded our Web Client features.
We have added core PLM features like Thumbnails and Attribute Change Management along with enhancements in Engineering Collaboration (CAD integration).
We have created an automation platform in Events which preserves the unique Agile ability to deploy quickly and also upgrade later when needed. We have created Web Services which provide IT with well documented methods to integrate within your company.
We have focused on user adoption and training by adding Oracle UPK support, video Quick Tours, and recorded training sessions covering new features which are available to customers. All of this works with Oracle's phenomenal middleware platform, including Business Intelligence (BI) for actionable analytics and Application Integration Architecture (AIA) for enterprise software integration. This uplifting message should assure any company that Oracle Agile PLM 9.3 is the right path to get superior benefits from PLM - today - when you need to be preparing for soaring on the thermals of the next business cycle.
This release is too big to cover in one Blog post - I could ramble on for many pages. In fact, there is a Whitepaper posted in Oracle Metalink which does elaborate on the new features of this release. Please go check it out. While you are there buzz by the TOI recordings and start learning more about the depth of new features in 9.3.
You will be seeing a significant number of new posts here at the Agile PLM blog. In addition, check out the new Oracle Agile PLM Community to interact with fellow customers and Oracle employees. As always, the external WRAU and IAUG user groups will also be active with posting about Agile PLM 9.3. Finally, Oracle has a press release about Agile PLM 9.3.
I have worked with Agile PLM software since 1999 when I was tasked to convert a paper document control system at a telecommunications company into an electronic system. I chose, fought for, and bought Agile PLM for many different reasons, but primarily for its speed of deployment and for the awesome User Interface (CM client). I hope as you look at our enhanced Web Client you will see the same thing in Agile that I saw 10 years ago – an intuitive, highly productive client that your users actually like in an easy to implement and upgrade PLM software. Today, however, you also get amazing enterprise PLM features in a robust J2EE application backed by Oracle. Won't you grab the Agile PLM 9.3 balloons and rise with us?
