The discussion turned out to be very interesting even if it went a bit off scope.
I will keep from that discussion
People simply do not move from PDMLink to Intralink
PTC launches another lite version of a PDM which may end up being another distraction...
My view on that one is that too many businesses are trying to resist change and try to make software adopt their way of working rather than having an approach where business process and software deployment/configuration are developed together. In other words, they try to work the same old way into modern technology. Then yes PDMLink can be difficult to implement under those circumstancies.
As a consequence PTC is under pressure and develop tools which do not provide support for business processes and it is more used as a vault (or super vault thanks to lfe cycle state) but the hard work, ie the real processes, workflow etc.... is not available into those product.
Again thanks a lot for all your feedback.
PS: I really wonder why PTC stoped ProductPoint. Was it due to how sharepoint work ? A few weeks ago, I was discussing with a Managing Director who said PDMLink was too expensive and complex and he asked why we were not using sharepoint, it is free !!!!
Well no wonder, with such comments companies get into real mess with systems !!
