The original idea was to share innovative idea about CAD, PDM, PLM daily. Later in 2010 I renamed blog into Beyond PLM.

I’ve been building software products for data management, engineering and manufacturing for the last 20 years. It allowed me to gather experience in diverse fields – industries, customers, technology, organization, management, communication.
I’m passionate about using technologies and building businesses that transform the way people work in engineering, manufacturing and enterprise. My biggest enjoyment moments is to see how technology is solving real customers’ problem.
These days I’m focusing on developing cloud platform and data technologies at Autodesk. I joined Autodesk team after acquisition of Inforbix technologies in 2012.
I co-founded Inforbix in 2010. We built cloud-based semantic search and data analysis tools for engineers. I’ve been proud to be part of the Inforbix team developing a new way for manufacturing companies to solve product data problems. It was fun and a lot of work to make things happen. Autodesk acquired Inforbix technologies in 2012.
I spent a decade working for Smart Solutions, SmarTeam, Enovia, Dassault Systems. Over these years, I held various positions in R&D group and company management. I led teams developing SmarTeam PDM/PLM, working with customers and partners.
Prior to that I spent few years developing data management and CRM applications at Decision Systems Israel. I was part of the team developing Professional Help Desk (PHD) tool for CT based startup that was sold to CA in 1998.
In early 1990s, I was working for Autodesk reseller in Israel, building apps for AutoCAD, working on technical pre-sale, helping customers to implement our solutions and train users.
