Data Management

Scalable CAD data management solutions that meet the needs of all manufacturers, from startups and very small firms to larger manufacturers with distributed operations.

Manufacturing organizations can struggle to work effectively with the fast growing volumes of data that they create when designing and manufacturing their products. Research from industry analysts shows that manufacturers who implement effective solutions for data management are:

2.7x

as likely to be “very effective” at finding the data they need

over 3x

as likely to be “very effective” at managing their design projects

2.7x

as likely to be “very effective” at sharing data with others

over 2.5x

as likely to be “very effective” at providing the correct data to manufacturing
