(ST. PAUL, MINN., JULY 29, 2010) Lawson Software (Nasdaq: LWSN) announced today a technology platform upgrade to its Lawson Fashion Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution. This latest release, Lawson Fashion PLM 3.7, supports the Microsoft SQL 2008 database and Windows® server 2008 (64 bit) and is generally available today. It also supports Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 and 8 for user running the Microsoft Windows® Vista (32 bit) operating system and Microsoft Explorer 8 for those moving on to the new Microsoft Windows® 7 (32 bit) operating system.
The 21st Century presents a number of unprecedented and interrelated global challenges. Population growth, climate change, resource depletion (including energy and water) and food security are no longer the sole concern of governments or fragile communities. Instead, corporates now recognize that what were once viewed as inconsequential ‘externalities’ increasingly represent a clear threat to their current and future viability, particularly where those businesses operate extended and complex supply chains.
