Aras has announced the availability of the latest open release of Aras Innovator enterprise PLM software suite.

This latest release of Aras Innovator is specifically designed for large-scale global PLM deployments.

It combines expanded enterprise manageability, advanced upgrade capabilities and supports the latest Microsoft platform technologies.

This release is suitable for enterprise-wide PLM deployments that utilise geographically distributed data centres, private cloud resources or a hybrid environment (both on-premise and in-cloud infrastructure simultaneously).

Enhancements to Aras’s advanced PLM architecture mean that it is more scalable, manageable and secure.

The software features comprehensive support for data centre virtualisation, enabling distributed deployment scenarios across physical server infrastructure resources around the world.

New caching techniques optimise system calls and minimise traffic over the WAN for faster performance worldwide, particularly on high-latency networks and in low-bandwidth conditions.

Workflows operate in multiple languages at the same time, delivering workflow activities and instructions in the native language of each participant.

Multi-level system notification functionality enables system administrators to issue notices out to users and provides administrators with information on service packs and security updates.

User notices can be tailored to specific users, groups and/or roles.

Advanced database protection, additional system administrator controls and enhanced track and audit capabilities add to Aras’s enterprise security management capabilities.

Unlike legacy PLM system upgrades, which effectively require a re-implementation and data migration, Aras is upgraded ‘in place’ in a fraction of the time as no recoding or data migration are necessary.

All Aras upgrades – major and minor – are now performed for customers, regardless of customisation, as part of the Aras Unlimited subscription package, at no additional cost.

The latest Aras Innovator release is designed to take advantage of the capabilities offered by Microsoft for global businesses that require scalability, high availability and comprehensive administration.

The release can be deployed on the latest Microsoft platform products including: Windows Server 2008 R2 with Hyper-V; Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 8; and IIS 7.5 and .Net Framework 3.5.

Aras Innovator is also certified by Microsoft in independent testing for the entire Microsoft platform including ‘Certified for Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2’ and ‘Compatible with Windows 7’.
