The ACE 2010 agenda also featured a series of technical sessions and workshops including Data Federation, Distributed & Replicated Architectures, SharePoint PLM and more.

“During this global recession companies everywhere are looking hard at how they operate and focusing on ways to improve their competitive position,” said Peter Schroer, president of Aras. “It’s great to see such a diverse group of international companies adopting Aras and the enterprise open source PLM model, and participating so actively in the Aras Community.  Having businesses from around the world share best practices and business process innovations is very powerful, and we’re glad that Aras can make that possible.”
