New Cloud-Enabling Technology for Product Development Organizations

Zero Wait-State has announced the immediate availability of new cloud-enabling technology, CloudState, for product development organizations. This integration platform will allow companies to integrate engineering systems like SolidWorks, Creo, Onshape, AutoCAD Inventor, NX and Catia with cloud-based product lifecycle management (PLM) offerings from companies including Oracle PLM and Salesforce-based PropelPLM. This platform will also allow cloud-based computer aided design (CAD) tools like Onshape to integrate with traditional PLM tools like Oracle's Agile PLM, PTC's Windchill and Siemens' TeamCenter.

"PropelPLM and Zero Wait-State are extending Onshape's agile design capabilities into a true customer-focused PLM system," said Darren Henry, VP of Product Marketing at Onshape. "Not only can design teams collaborate and iterate faster during the design process, their customers are now able to easily collaborate on crucial product information during development and after product release."

CloudState will enable the exchange of data between platforms allowing companies to select "best in class" technology that best meets their needs for product development. Companies can choose to leverage powerful new cloud-based offerings in PLM from Oracle or PropelPLM while continuing to use their current design tools. CloudState also allows companies wanting to move their product development capabilities completely to the cloud to use a product like Onshape that enables design and collaboration through a browser with all data staying in the cloud. Companies could also leverage Onshape while sharing information with existing on-premise PLM.

Currently Version 1 works with CAD tools from Dassault (SolidWorks), Onshape and PTC (Creo) and PLM technology from PropelPLM and Oracle (Agile PLM). Future releases will expand to Quality, Compliance, as well as more CAD tools and PLM technologies both cloud-based and on-premise.

Stephen Porter, Founder and CEO of Zero Wait-State, added, "Our clients are looking for powerful cloud-based solutions to drive their new product introduction process, so it was a natural fit to partner with leading cloud-based product development solutions like Oracle, Onshape and PropelPLM. CloudState will enhance these applications and allow companies to realize true cloud-based product development and collaboration."
