PLM Alliance Announces Participation at SAPPHIRE NOW® to Showcase SAP Engineering Control Center: Empower R&D with SAP Solutions

Orlando, Florida - April 10, 2019: PLM Alliance, comprised of five SAP development partners, today announced that it will participate at SAPPHIRE NOW® and ASUG Annual Conference being held May 7- 9 in Orlando, Florida in booth #1346.

In the world of Internet of Things, fast-moving competitive environments, and the increasing complexity of customer requirements, digital data represents one of the most effective means of powering and supporting strategic innovation. With unprecedented speed, digital data connects companies with global customers and suppliers in real time while enabling extraordinary achievements for companies handling this data the right way.

The PLM Alliance is dedicated to delivering the foundational layer enabling digital transformation for manufacturing companies through the integration of mechanical and electrical CAD authoring tools into SAP software. Establishing real time connection to products from ideation through obsolescence enables vast control over every step of the product development lifecycle. Manufacturers can benefit enterprise-wide with the SAP Engineering Control Center integration tool to Autodesk AutoCAD and Inventor, Dassault Systems CATIA V5 and SOLIDWORKS, PTC Creo, PTC Windchill, Siemens NX and Solid Edge, as well as EPLAN Electric P8 and more.

Visit Cenit, CIDEON, DSC Software, EPLAN, and .riess engineering at the PLM Alliance booth #1346 to see how manufacturers benefit from the integrated “digital twin” approach for SAP Product Lifecycle Management. See how manufacturers can use SAP S/4HANA® for digital innovation by connecting data, information and processes that tie virtual and real products together in an intelligent way to follow through the entire lifecycle from design, production, delivery, usage and service, to end-of-life.

PLM Alliance’s participation stems from the growing need among businesses running SAP software to enable closed-loop engineering and the digital thread without increasing complexity of overall system architecture. The embedded SAP solutions allow cross-departmental business users to access, manage and control real-time product development data. This helps ensure that quality, time to market, and overall product development costs are managed on time and on target without the need for multiple systems and potential break points slowing down business.

To learn more about the benefits of closed-loop engineering in SAP Product Lifecycle Management, visit our PLM Alliance Booth #1346. Get insights on how engineers can easily and intuitively access powerful SAP solutions without the use of transaction codes or specialist knowledge. Witness how to enable enterprise product development with real time visibility through your digital supply chain and get a firsthand look at the SAP Engineering Control Center integrated with MCAD, ECAD, and Office applications.

Use your chance to meet our customers and hear about their challenges and how SAP Product Lifecycle Management helped them to speed up their engineering and their product develop cycles by creating a single source of truth. “SAP Engineering Control Center enables us to put all the product information from all production sites into one system, in one place. We now have a single source of truth, and that’s extremely important to us,” said Rickard Nordgren, PLM IT Manager, Sandvik AB.

SAPPHIRE NOW and ASUG Annual Conference are the world’s premier business technology event and largest SAP customer run conference, offering attendees the opportunity to learn and network with customers, SAP executives, partners, and experts across the entire SAP ecosystem.
