Who Will Be The First To Put PLM On Amazon?

I was reading on ebizQ during the weekend – Lawson Puts Full Function ERP system on Amazon Web Service Cloud. Actually, Lawson has PLM product  – PLM For Apparel and Footwear.

During the last few months, or even more, I’ve heard so much discuss about cloud and PLM. Lots of pros and cons were raised? Security, IP, availability, etc. I don’t think I can add something to this discussion for the moment. However, it sounds like a lot of discussion, but nobody wants to try it out. Sometimes try and fail (or not) can be a very good approach. My question – who will be the first to move their complete PLM offering and host it on Amazon AWS?

Maybe you know a company which did it already?
Just my thoughts…

Best, Oleg

  • Oleg – interesting and relevant. Steve Stojanovski, one of our PLM Consultants has been experimenting with Amazon for about a year. He successfully setup and working version of SmarTeam Web Editor server. It was VERY responsive. We continue to study and work with technologies that could enable SaaS-like availability of PLM software.

  • Michael, Thanks for your comment! I think, the initiative you mentioned is very important. I’m sure, the potential of Cloud Services can be discovered by using the same solutions we have today. This is the core idea of virtual computing. Amazon EC2 is just about that. It will allow to companies to innovate in business models and maybe deliver better services to customers. Best, Oleg
