Aras has made a partnership with the Institute for Process Excellence to empower companies with tools and methods to achieve sustainable digital transformation strategies.
Aras delivers an open, low-code platform for engineering, manufacturing and maintenance of complex, connected products. The flexible architecture provides teams across the extended enterprise with access to data, insights and intelligence from the complete product lifecycle.
Aras and IpX aim to create a foundation of education, services and technology that companies can rely on to set the pace for innovation. By uniting Aras’ customizable and continuously upgradable platform with IpX’s training and comprehensive services, customers can cultivate sustainable digital transformation strategies. Beginning in May 2019, IpX will host a series of CM2 courses at Aras’ headquarters in Andover, MA. CM2 is the standard for enterprise product lifecycle change and configuration management.
“In order to achieve sustainable and scalable transformation, businesses must invest in functional workforce development in conjunction with reshaping legacy business processes and systems,” says Joseph Anderson, president of IpX. “Proactive and continual improvement requires the organization to address silo competency mindsets, antiquated capabilities and global workforce dynamics.”
“Collaborating with IpX and providing the Aras community insight into IpX’s educational sector and unique engagement model will enhance the knowledge, skills, and behavior required to effectively leverage the Aras Platform and create tangible enterprise change,” says Peter Schroer, founder and CEO of Aras. “As this partnership matures, respective customers will continuously have the support of new services, products, and training opportunities to advance their Digital Transformation initiatives.”
On April 16, IpX president, Joe Anderson, will join Aras CEO, Peter Schroer, for an onstage Fireside Chat at ACE 2019. Their conversation will touch on the topics of technology and culture, the future skills gap, and what creates sustainable digital transformation.
