DARMSTADT, Germany, Aug 16, 2021 – PROSTEP, a PLM consulting and software company, has entered into a partnership with Intland Software, the company that developed the application lifecycle management (ALM) platform codebeamer. The subject of the partner agreement is the development of an OpenPDM connector to codebeamer, which will make it possible for Intland customers to easily and quickly connect the ALM solution to PLM systems or other enterprise applications via PROSTEP’s proven integration platform OpenPDM. Intland’s ALM solution is becoming increasingly popular in, for example, the automotive industry.
The motivation behind the partnership is the increasing proportion of software in smart products and the customers’ need to better integrate software developers and their tools in the overall product development process in order to achieve end-to-end digitalization across different domains. First and foremost, the digital thread requires tighter links between ALM and PLM systems. PROSTEP is taking account of this fact by expanding its OpenPDM integration platform to include standard connectors to leading ALM platforms such as codebeamer. The integration platform already has connectors to all leading PLM and ERP systems and to other enterprise applications, e.g. for requirements management. At the same time, it provides the basis for OpenCLM, PROSTEP’s new solution for establishing end-to-end digitalization across domains.
The OpenPDM product suite and preconfigured solution packages make it possible for users to implement use cases and application scenarios for the digital thread with a manageable outlay. In combination with the market-leading ALM solution, OpenPDM lays the foundation for integrating the PLM backbone, requirements management, systems engineering modeling and software repository in one central platform.
“The partnership with Intland allows us to develop reliable integration solutions to the ALM platform codebeamer. These solutions help our customers to better integrate their system landscapes and make the information required for the digital thread available across domains,” says Dr. Karsten Theis, a member of the executive board of PROSTEP AG. The partnership complements an existing cooperation between PROSTEP’s subsidiary BHC GmbH, which provides customers with advice on ALM/PLM integration, and Intland Software. It also provides for closer collaboration in the context of consulting and implementation projects.
“We are looking forward to working with PROSTEP and are confident that the know-how and expertise of its PLM experts will help us to further boost the quality of our services and provide customers with the best possible support when it comes to topics such as MBSE and PLM/ALM integration,” says Reka Moksony, Head of Partner Alliances at Intland Software.
