Cloud

When we talk about ‘cloud’ here at WhichPLM, we’re referring to a catch-all term for any application, deployment, or strategy that involves distributed processing or storage. Historically, these were split into Software as a Service (SaaS), Managed Services, and a host of other labels, but while the differences between these approaches remain, WhichPLM considers the most important distinction today to be between whether a solution is hosted on-site (i.e. on hardware owned and maintained by the customer) or off-site, in data centres owned and maintained by the vendor. While this is not always the case, a cloud deployment is often tied to a subscription pricing model, rather than the traditional upfront license / ongoing maintenance model.

The majority of technology providers are now offering cloud based PLM, and other cloud based software. Check back here for updates on cloud PLM solutions.
