You have read properly. Windchill is more expensive than Intralink. Of course both systems are different.
I would say Windchill is a PDS/PLM while Intralink is a PDM or advanced vault.
When Windchill implementation is struggling and Windchill is used just to do what Intralink provide. would it make sense to you to migrate to Intralink in order to save on maintenance cost but also reduce cost of changes all the business processes for properly adopting Windchill.
Has any one of you experienced or know of a company who moved from Windchill to Intralink ?
I am interesting in know about the business case to such "downgrading" and does PTC provide as much support and tools for the migration and they do when migrating from Intralink to Windchill.
PDM Essentials is identical to Windchill Intralink except as follows.

Well said Ron,
And could this be another Productpoint that PTC gets bored with after a
couple of years, then discontinues so all the users that used ProductPoint
have to upgrade to Windchill?
And is PDMLink Essentials just Windchill Intralink rebadged????
