About Beyond PLM

July 7, 2010 · 0 comments

I started my first blog Daily PLM Think Tank on plmtwine.com back in 2008. PLM Think Tank is my attempt to discuss innovative ideas and thoughts about Product Lifecycle Management. Now I decided to expand my online experience. I felt PLM boundaries put some restrictions on the topics I wanted to discuss and, occasionally, I felt bound to a specific context. So, I had the idea of Beyond PLM. I welcome any ideas, topics and comments.

This blog is my contribution to the community of people looking for information about Engineering and Manufacturing Software. We live in a world of information. It is everywhere. However, it is still not so easy to get information you need. My belief is that one day information will be easily available where you need it at the time you need it. This is the future how I see it.


“If you want to have a great future you have to think about it in the present, because when the future’s here you won’t have the time”. [Nathan Myhrvold, ex-CTO of Microsoft].

About me:

I’ve been building software products for data management, engineering and manufacturing for the last 20 years. This is long time to gather experience in diverse fields – industry, customers, technology, organization, management, communication.

After Autodesk acquisition of Inforbix products and technologies in 2012, I joined the team at Autodesk Inc. developing cloud PLM and PDM products.

In 2010, I co-founded Inforbix. I’ve been proud to be part of the Inforbix founding team developing a new way to help manufacturing companies to solve their product data problems. It was fun and a lot of work to make things happen.

I spent a decade (1999-2009) working for Smart Solutions, SmarTeam, Enovia, Dassault Systems. Over these years, I held various positions in R&D group and company management. Most recently I was ENOVIA SmarTeam Chief Technology Officer.

Prior to that I spent few years developing data management and CRM applications at Decision Systems Israel. Before I was working for Autodesk reseller in Israel, focusing on application development, customer implementations, pre-sale and training.

I hold a PhD in CAD Systems from the Moscow Civil Engineering Institute and a MSc in Computer Systems for Industries from Magnitogorsk Polytechnic Institute in Russia.
