PL1782I - SaaS PLM Windchill+ Cloud Integration with ERP

Using Windchill+ as a SaaS PLM is a great advantage. However, a major challenge can be the connection from Windchill+ to the company’s ERP system(s). ERP systems may reside in the cloud, or they may still be installed on-premises. Connecting these two systems is essential, so that product data is exchanged smoothly between development and production. Experience shows that every company needs a slightly different solution to connect these two systems, as business rules and processes can have many variations. Consequently, a connector is needed to enable the implementation of this variety and a customer who chooses Windchill+ also expects the connector to run as a SaaS. Attend this session to learn about CoreFace - a no-code integration suite, installed in the cloud as a SaaS implementation.
