We are pleased to announce the general availability of Agile Product Lifecycle Management 9.3.5 and Oracle Product Lifecycle Analytics (OPLA) 3.5 release. Both are now available on the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud website.
Oracle’s Agile Product Lifecycle Management solutions enable businesses to accelerate product innovation and maximize product profitability by managing the information, processes, and decisions about their products throughout the product lifecycle and across the global product network. With a broad suite of enterprise-class product lifecycle management (PLM) applications and time-to-value-focused implementations, Oracle provides the most comprehensive PLM solution in the industry. We continue to deliver on our Oracle Applications Unlimited commitment to continuously innovate in current applications while also delivering the next generation of Cloud applications.
Agile PLM 9.3.5 extends the value and flexibility of Agile PLM with the addition of a Multi-Project Gantt, a Gantt editor that supports multi-project program and dynamic portfolio assessment. Additionally we have added single and multi-project Gantt resource risk assessment and custom filtering, as well as other user driven enhancements. In Agile PLM 9.3.5 Engineering Collaboration, we have added a new process, Design Release, that extends the reach and control of Agile workflow management directly to the engineers for the review, markup incorporation, release, and publication of CAD design files into PLM, directly from the CAD client and/or in the Web client. Finally the implementation of AutoVue 21, with Agile PLM 9.3.5, continues to improve performance and extend markup management.
Agile Product Lifecycle Management 9.3.5 is available on Oracle Software Delivery Cloud for download under the respective licensed products. The Agile Product Lifecycle Management Documentation Library Release v9.3.5 (Part Number E69230_01) is available on the OTN.
