Open Architecture and Software
Open Software - To customize or extend traditional PLM applications you have to use the vendor’s published API. But without detailed knowledge of the internal workings of the application you are working blind. Aras takes a different approach – we make the source available to you so you can modify it directly with the control and flexibility that your business needs. Learn more about Aras' approach to open software.
Model-Based SOA - Aras is designed to fit your business needs, rather than the business compromised to fit the software. Instead of the traditional approach - defining an object model which is hard coded - we chose to separate the two. The result is a web application framework consisting of web services optimized for performance and scalability which form a service-oriented architecture (SOA). Lear more about the SOA Platform.
